note to self: cite Tolstoy or Camus

Can one opt out of the Analytical Writing portion of the GRE for ideological reasons? What about citing insufficient cultural capital as justification? I didn’t know that James Buchanan was born in a log cabin, went to law school, and gave great speeches just like Lincoln but doesn’t receive recognition because of his lacking association with the Civil War. Or that one does not do science, but is a scientist. Or that Bolivia uses a majority of its resources to maintain an agricultural status quo.

Shot out of a canon, but not of the canon, nor in canon. My canon is more like cacophony.
