let's get those meds adjusted

By Diogenes (articles ) | Oct 20, 2005

Eugene Kennedy, on hierarchy:

The hierarchical dynamic shatters the wholeness of creation and human personality, dividing people into higher and lower aspects, thereby de-sacramentalizing and sexually wounding both.

Up to a point, Professor. Nurse!

    You'd have to be on meds to give your hard earned money to subscribe to the National Catholic Reporter, anyhow. We pay people to kill and cut up our meat so we don't have to stand in blood. We pay men to take our garbage away and put it in a landfill. And we pay Uncle Di to read NCR for us. I don't have to see the article.

    I think the professor should up her dose of mood medicine.

    Hmmmmm...Wonder how long Prof Kennedy would consider the idea that universities should abandon the 'hierarchical dynamic' of presidents, deans, department heads, board members, tenured and nontenured professors, teaching & lab assistants, janitorial staff and students, in favor of complete and total equality in authority and finances among all staff and student.

    This is what you get when you stick a middling intelligence in the academy: a meaningless rendering of jargon in a way that, when parsed, can only sound truly funny. The heirarchical dynamic, come to earth as the nameless Beast, desacramentalizing people, including Catholics, and sexually wounding both higher and lower aspects of the people who have been divided. Something like that. Only in America.

    There seems to be a hastening process among elderly liberals who exhibit signs of dementia earlier than others. Loyola University in Chicago has never been the bastion of deep thought, and Professor Kennedy certainly helps to maintain that stellar reputation. It is a shame, however, about the shattering of "the wholeness of creation". I assume Prof. K. hopes that a bit of old-fashioned communism will set it right?

    The problem with this post is that one must subscribe to the NCR in order to understand it.
