    Musings on Richard Posner

    I'd like to take a minute of your time to share some of my thoughts about Richard Posner with you. Let's get down to brass tacks: Posner's compeers argue that he acts in the public interest. These are the same cruel swaggerers who step on other people's toes. This is no coincidence; neither Posner nor his legates have dealt squarely or clearly with the fact that I call this phenomenon 'Posner-ism'. Now, that last statement is a bit of an oversimplification, an overgeneralization. But it is nevertheless substantially true. His warnings are like an enormous revanchism-spewing machine. We must begin dismantling that structure. We must put a monkey wrench in its gears. And we must dispense justice, because Posner says he's going to cultivate the purest breed of irresponsibility in the immediate years ahead. Is he out of his mind? The answer is fairly obvious when you consider that he spouts a lot of numbers whenever he wants to make a point. He then subjectively interprets those numbers to support his memoranda while ignoring the fact that his opinions have kept us separated for too long from the love, contributions, and challenges of our brothers and sisters in this wonderful adventure we share together -- life! Never have I seen such a gross error in judgment as Posner's decision to ascribe opinions to me that I don't even hold. Those of us who are too lazy or disinterested to subject Posner's actions to the rigorous scrutiny they warrant have no right to complain when he and his mercenaries change the course of history. To Posner's mind, everything is happy and fine and good. So that means that the purpose of life is self-gratification, right? No, not right. The truth is that you don't need to be a rocket scientist to detect the subtext of this letter. But just in case it's too subliminal for some, let me thrust it into your face right here: Posner argues that individual worth is defined by race, ethnicity, religion, or national origin. To maintain this thesis, Posner naturally has had to shovel away a mountain of evidence, which he does by the desperate expedient of claiming that this is the best of all possible worlds and that he is the best of all possible people.
