3 Kinds of Black, Liberal Structuralism, and Rudyard Kipling

Some prescient words from Mr. Kipling:

Then the Gods of the Market tumbled, and their smooth-tongued wizards withdrew,
And the hearts of the meanest were humbled and began to believe it was true
That All is not Gold that Glitters, and Two and Two make Four --
And the Gods of the Copybook Headings limped up to explain it once more.

from God's of the Copybook Headings, 1919. Rudyard Kipling.

A wise man, Mr. Cobb. I've only just discovered his work in the last few years, but he quickly went onto my Must Read list.

Take credit, G. He's on my must-read list as well. All credit to you, friend. He makes me think. Truly a seeker.

Thanks, Gerard for introducing us (me) to Cobb. Nice to find such really good stuff.

Been reading Cobb for a long while, he's one of those treasures in this medium - an articulate, intelligent man who knows his way around solid writing and thoughtful opinion pieces. I like him.
