The idea of liberals doing any sort of research, let alone "really good research," is nothing short of absolutely laughable. The fact that Joan Walsh had the gall to get up and say that she researched something or someone else researched it and she's just parroting it without taking a gander into the facts is humorous enough.
My parents belonged to a Puritan religious group and disapproved of pleasure. To keep up with pop music, I had to stand outside a nearby trucker's cafe to listen to the jukebox.
I had heard the term "anaesthetic" earlier, but in this instance I take it directly from Robert Hughesthe Australian art critic and historian.
In the performances of Karen Finley and Holly Hughes you get the extreme of what can go wrong with art-as-politics -- the belief that mere expressiveness is enough; that I become an artist by showing you my warm guts and defying you to reject them.
You don't like my guts? You and Jesse Helms, fella. The claims of this stuff are infantile. I have demands, I have needs.
Why have you not gratified them? The "you" allows no differentiation, and the self-righteousness of the "I" is deeply anaesthetic [sic].

To say that beauty might be both undeserved and oppressive i. Oscar Wilde condemns this, in his own way, by saying, "Those who find ugly meanings in beautiful things are corrupt without being charming.
Anhedonia implies the severity and humorlessness typical of moralism even in the ordinary use of the word "moralistic.Living a good life means realizing those excellences in our lives as best we can.
Put another way, we are under a moral obligation [!] to do our best to realize the best that human beings can be.
