I am also reading “Witches Werewolves and Fairies” by Claude Lacouteux.
And i like this part:
i am becomming more aware, or at least more tolerant and accepting, of the fact that most academic considerations do not consider what may be true or false. Most academic actors are there to argue the institution. In this way they behave just like Christian apologists, clearing the conceptual path for the power of the instituion, justifying its real application.
most, but not all.
I remember Jello Biafra once said that you cannot effect or change the system from outside of it; you have to infiltrate it.
the cattle argue that grass is the only food.
