They say Hegel was big. They say he was important. Personally, I find him impenetrable. A man who writes this poorly deserves not to be read, which is just about his present status: unread and therefore ignored, yet still, perversely, revered. I say Hegel should be held up as an example of poor writing, radical obscurantism, ugly proto-fascist (Royalist-Kaiserist) politics and neologistic fantasism (what the hell is a phenomenology anyway?)
