You too can write like this!

The epistemology of history as such asks to be read as the legitimation of the nation-state. However, the emergence of desire invests itself in the authentication of the gendered body. At the same time, the eroticization of post-capitalist hegemony replays (in parodic form) the systemization of agency, and the eroticization of normative value(s) is homologous with the construction of the image. Accordingly, the logic of praxis invests itself in the fantasy of the public sphere.

Thus, I conclude that (first) the poetics of pop culture asks to be read as the discourse of pedagogical institutions. And (second) it is all too clear that the linguistic construction of desire, which has become so familiar in the modern age, under late capitalism, invests itself in the engendering of the image.


Just go here to learn how to write like that, and you'll be fine.

The reification of normative value(s) is strictly congruent with the systemization of the specular economy.

I can always recognize a tossed word salad.

I love this stuff. I doubt even the gobbledygook generators that have gotten papers accepted at fake conferences in computer science could could ever surpass Alan Sokal's submission to Social Text. I think he probably put more effort into writing that parody than serious physicists (or biologists for that matter) put into some of their real papers.

Put your back into it, men! Any man jack among us can write such gibberish as will forswear the dawn. Athena empowers us!

Writing anything clearly is damned hard. Hemingway and Vonnegut are worth mocking, but when you try the same sort of thing yourself you may not find it all that easy.
