There’s a sordid feedback loop between publishers and intellectuals. Tangible books have the effect of making ideas realer so this is significant. The publishers don’t want to be affiliated with certain crimethinks because that would cause other writers to not want to be affiliated with them. Other writers wouldn’t want to be affiliated with them because their demotic-readership would irrationally kneejerk-stigmatize them for it. If you get paid to write, all these things are going on in your head subconsciously. If you get paid to write, you must of necessity occupy a “shill-headspace”, so I understand if you disagree with me on certain things, by which I mean I understand if “you” disagree, i.e. “you” are your publisher, other intellectuals, and the demos, that’s who “you” are. This is how our intelligentsia is squandered, and how lies are “booked” into the world.

How much would the cathedral even exist if everyone thought they would go to Hell when they died if they were a bad person?
