    Though I like Alan Moore, he once said in some interview or another that one cannot have consciousness without language, which I don’t agree with at all.

    And though I don’t agree with absolutely everything McCarthy said in that piece either, on the whole it certainly makes for good figurative ammunition should I ever meet someone in person (I always do) who , unlike the talented and seemingly honorable Moore, feels the need to dominate everyone else with their viewpoints. This blog is a goldmine.
