I generally enjoy Sargon’s work, but this was a shining masterpiece. It’s a troll inside a troll inside a troll, and the original publishers are so hyped up on the extremism they don’t even realize they’ve been bit. And Sargon tears it apart anyways, just to make the point.
I am too damned smart for the world.

I commented on the buildup over the last decade of inverse flattery.

It used to be hard to generate these extremists, but now they create themselves.
