I read non-stop, and my reading material is…eclectic, to say the least. I found this one in the philosophy section.
“Self-aggrandizing asshole with thin moral pretext.”
“To see this, consider why we swear out loud at the asshole in traffic.”
“When we are at risk for being exploited, we can at least take ourselves out of the asshole’s way.”
It has also usefully confirmed my (extremely negative) opinion of Flaubert, which felt pretty good.
