I'm pretty sure you could completely remove proto-totalitarian heirarchical-pedagogic from that sentence and not affect its meaning. Why is the proposed solution necessarily naive, historicist, or Marxist? He is merely saying that the novel ostensibly is about the incompatibility of love and social norms, but the society it depicts is sick. He acts as though he makes a very deep point here. He does not.

He did a sublime job of breaking down the dialectic of Kung Fu Panda though. He talked about that movie for ten pages and it was awesome.

Nothing wrong with Katy Perry

Probably nothing wrong with a girl wanting to see her documentary, since she probably thinks it'll only be singing.

I'm on the record as being very tolerant and nonjudgmental. Live and let live, I often say.

If well named were/was? doing his job and meeting his ban quota, people wouldn't be forced into banning themselves.
