Welcome to Bookmarker!

This is a personal project by @dellsystem. I built this to help me retain information from the books I'm reading. Currently can only be used by a single user (myself), but I plan to extend it to support multiple users eventually.

The Politics of Boredom and the Boredom of Politics in The Pale King

the history of boredom (acedia, melancholy, ennui, etc); how TPK documents a variety of boredoms (the existential, the quotidian, that arising from neoliberalism). he talks a lot about boredom and neoliberalism (cites David Harvey's Brief History of Neoliberalism and quotes its definition), and gives some political and historical context for Chris Fogle's chapter + Spackman stuff. on how giving in to boredom is irresponsible and childish; instead we must transcend it. it may be boring to pay attention to things other than the self, but if we want to find relevance and meaning, that's where we'll find them.
