Essential Outsider?

New article on the stand:

I think the race stuff brings up a lot of hard questions, ones that i generally steer clear of. I think that printing common stereotypes in a P.C. world can be a minefield in its own right, even when written in an objective mode of inquiry. Good journalism is a means towards provocation, and the article certainly does that.

If I understand Adam's chain of causality, outsider status --> moneylending --> haggling --> ethical self-examination --> educational attainment.

And here I thought I was just baking bread, not participating in theory-production!

  1. I wonder if I were to bake bread, and not have shortening biscuits every week or fried *insert item here* if it would be seen as me simultaneously exploiting and ignoring myself.
