Reading for 12/27

Hello friends, Dysnomia here. I’m still out of town, but since I heard no reading was settled upon last week, I thought I would recommend a recent favorite for you all in my absence. I received a book of Cioran’s as a gift from Athena at BASTARD a few months back and I’ve found it to be provocative. From History and Utopia, take a look at “Odyssey of Rancor” (pp. 57), a thoughtful meditation on the predicament of reactive forces (in a Nietzschean sense, i.e. resséntiment) qua vengeful resistance. The rest of the book is also splendid, worth a look if you’re so inclined. I hope you enjoy it. See y’all in a week.
