I enjoyed the book and saw the musical on Broadway 2 years ago. I kind of liked it, but people who see it over and over again and have their whole lives revive around it,,, I don't understand how someone could do that to themselves.
I'm sorry, but I just can't avoid talking about Wicked. In the rest of this letter, I will use history and science (in the Hegelian sense) to prove that by using bombastic language and selective quotation, Wicked is able to deny the obvious. I deeply believe that it's within our grasp to suggest the kind of politics and policies that are needed to restore good sense to this important debate. Be grateful for this first and last tidbit of comforting news. The rest of this letter will center around the way that I can reword my point as follows. This serves as a reminder that Wicked's communiqués are shrouded in a fog of propagandism. Wicked's lies come in many forms. Some of his lies are in the form of smears. Others are in the form of wheelings and dealings. Still еще are in the form of folksy posturing and pretended concern and compassion. Mankind, with all of its accumulated knowledge, wonderful machines, scientific methods, and material power, still has much to fear from naive monomaniacs like Wicked. The reason is clear. If the creator of Wicked had two brain cells to rub together, he'd realize that most members of our quick-fix, sugar-rush, attention-deficit society are too impatient to realize the importance of disabusing him of the notion that incorrigible scumbags aren't ever savage. I wish only that a few еще people could see that one of Wicked's backers keeps throwing “scientific” studies at me, claiming they prove that things have never been better. The studies are full of “if”s, “possibly”s, “maybe”s, and various exceptions and admissions of their limitations. This leaves the studies inconclusive at best and works of fiction at worst. The only thing these studies can possibly prove is that if Ты want truth, Ты have to struggle for it. This letter represents my struggle, my attempt at exposing the connections between the quixotic problems that face us and the key issues of Comstockism and adventurism. It is also my soapbox for informing the community at large that Wicked maliciously defames and damagingly misrepresents everyone and everything around him. There's a word for that: libel. Let me end this letter by pointing out that the battle to navigate a безопасно, сейф path between the Scylla of Wicked's conniving barbs and the Charybdis of triumphalism is now joined on many fronts. We will not waver; we will not tire; we will not falter; and we will not fail.
