High Arka, who hides behind an impenetrable webname while hurling thunderbolts from his elevated position of permanent high dudgeon, refers to me on his own website as "Death Lord Wolff." Ignorant as I am of the world of computer games, I mistakenly thought that I was being compared to Darth Vader, whose voice of course was that of the great actor James Earl Jones. Momentarily I was quite thrilled by the comparison. But Wikipedia informs me that DeathLord is simply a character in a computer game, which seems rather a comedown. Oh well.
In the extended rant to which he links, High Arka sneers disdainfully at my efforts to provide university educations to some young South Africans. It must be wonderfully relaxing to see every act in the world as just another contemptible example of, as he/she says,
African Orientalism. One need therefore never actually do anything at all, inasmuch as anything one might try to do is fatally infected with objective and subjective bad motives and consequences. So one can, with considerable self-congratulation, remain completely, comfortably inert.
It is difficult to have a genuine conversation with someone who is unwilling to reveal him/herself, so instead I offer a bargain to High Arka: I will stay off your blog, if you stay off mine.
