What is Hollywood, you ask, dear children? A quorum of whores babbling endlessly on about fucking while the bordello is razed for a penny arcade -- Paul Bern

The beauty and advantage of much theoretical writing, particularly in translation (by lesser lights, naturally) of presumably lucid works, is that it becomes "bad writing", and therefore requires a cottage industry of hierophant/interpreters that can smooth out any ambiguities or contradictions in the work so that it becomes more consumable and serviceable in the spectacle. Such writing requires a second mediation; a remediation.

Reading, in this way becomes corporate work, removing it from the  unpleasant engagement with the solitude of private experience. 

They are all in it together.
