Alex Cockburn and Bérenger.   Share:  
Thrust of argument: Jeffrey St Clair writes "When I met Alexander Cockburn, one of his first questions to me was: "Is your hate pure?" It was the question he asked most of the young writers he mentored. Cockburn's rules on how to write political polemics: write about what you care about, write with passion, go for the throat of your enemies and never back down. His admonitions remain the guiding stylesheet for our writers at CounterPunch." Direction of resistance / implied resistance: If I were one day to be comparable to Alex Cockburn, it would be very hard to be humble and to avoid vanity.

Removal of resistance: My hate is pure. I will never give in. Unification: A passage of literature I admire as much as the life and work of Alex Cockburn is the closing monologue of Ionesco's Rhinoceros:

"Oh well, too bad! I'll take on the whole lot of them! I'll put up a fight against the lot of them, the whole lot of them! I'm the last man left, and I'm staying that way until the end. I'm not capitulating" (translated out of French, obviously).
