In 2008 the literary Rebellion lost some of its major opponents: Jason Shinder; John Leonard (who referred to the "black flag" of the ULA); and David Foster Wallace, godfather of the Eggers cult.
If we push the tottering facade of the literary Establishment, it will collapse. The way mandarins vanish, I'm afraid of pushing too hard!
I suggest that rather than trying to block the inevitable, they abdicate now. They can live off their royalties, their inflated reputations, and their trust funds.
