So you don't read Heidegger because it is politically incorrect to do
so? Nor Carl Schmitt? Nor Ernst Juenger? Such a politically correct
strategy cuts down your reading list, and also your mind's horizon. That
distinguishes having a worldview from philosophizing. To philosophize is
to free one's mind up.
