I have recently wanted to separate my work from Disloyal Opposition which is now run by a very good writer who has little ideological compatibility to me. Unforunately, a year ago, when I made him chief administrator of that blog, it attributed my writings to him. Given the differences of our opinions and our writing styles, it was best if I archived my writing here. I apologize for those who follow and got nearly 50 posts yesterday.
There is always something strange about reading your prior work. You see how poorly you proof-read five or three years ago. Yet, rendering my past opinions an object to my current subjectivity, alienates those opinions from their original context and the moments in which I thought them. I often feel stupid, or, at best, naive. Given I have maintained and destroyed several blogs in my life–most of them not open to the public. Furthermore, I have developed some what radically over time, so watching that development in print is particularly strange.
