"Cynical Maxims and Marginalia" is a collection of cognitiveprojectiles. They pierce the reader's pretensions, illusions, and unexamined assumptions. They provide flashes of insightalong with an occasional good laugh at mankind's expense.There is little effort here to prove any point, demonstrate anyclaim, or justify any supposition. Persuasion is of secondaryinterest. The primary intention is to incite, to puncture, and toawaken the reader from slumber. The maxim is the author'sweapon of choice-a scattershot delivery system. The booklets fly in all directions, but takes particular aim at no one-or at everyone (which amounts to much the same thing).Careful argumentation has its place and value, but so doesfiring off a quiver full of flaming rhetorical arrows. These arehaphazard shots loosed into the darkness. Take cover.
