    Did anyone else catch the irony here, this being like a recommended reading list for teenaged Satanists?

    I sense that this supposed "Catholic avatar" is living in denial about something important...

    I'll suggest a WN coloring book as GWM reading so that your Professorship's intellectual scruples ain't offended.

    Say wha'? How does that have anything to do with what I said? Was I just misunderstood, or is this the "magic mirror" effect, or both? I wasn't attacking the "intellectual level" of the reading list. I was expressing surprise that someone who consistently LARPs as a papal suckpoop would list Redbeard, Ortega y Gasset, Guido von List, various "pagan" works, and those works of an Eastern persuasion.

    Perhaps you'd seem more authentic representing yourself as the genuine "eclectic" you just claimed to actually be, as opposed to the medieval scholastic neo-papist suckpoop that you're actually not. That's all I intended to imply. The coloring book remark doesn't make any sense to me, under these circumstances or in general, but it sounds like my "Professorship" couldn't be much concerned with it in any case.
