„This fifteen-year old battleground has served its time, and unlike a physical country, is not worth fighting over anymore. It has turned into a theme park of the history of culture wars 2007-15, best understood as a set of entertaining rides, like the new “Vox Populi, Vox Dei” Democracy Rollercoaster, and other coming attractions.“

„So much of modern society was built upon the interlocking presumptions of objective knowledge, impartial institutions, and neutral technology. As each in turn becomes increasingly implausible, rightly or wrongly, the modern world order comes apart.“
