THIS POST NOT TO BE TAKEN AS EVIDENCE THAT MY LIFE IS EMPTY

This sentence from Alasdair MacIntyre's After Virtue made me laugh out loud (and not in the flippant "lol" msn chat way, but in the actual, I-shouldn't-be-laughing-out-loud, laugh-out-loud way). MacIntyre is talking here of the tendency of Marxist thought to be coopted by a Weberian, managerial, bureaucratic mindset as they assume places of power:
All power tends to coopt and absolute power coopts absolutely.

Read it out loud to someone.

Good times. Good times.
