Example text

Even so, like Greg Tate, Armond White is pointing to how the very fact of 9/11 makes it impossible to live with a critical stance that pretends to be outside of those attacks and the new world they created. ” A guiding principle of this book is that we all are currently looking through a glass, darkly – and that glass, as the language of the King James Bible makes clear, is a faulty mirror, not a window.
