Joel Silverman

Joel Silverman has been in the news a lot lately for the BMV closings and his lack of diplomacy. There was one thing that I missed in the story about removing the clocks from the BMV--he stated that government workers have a tendency to be clockwatchers at work. What does he know? Does he have prior experience working in the government sector? The Fort Wayne Journal Gazette jeered him for criticizing thousands of Hoosier government workers.

I am not sure that any other administration has shown such contempt for its workforce. One of Governor Daniel's first executive acts was to strip union bargaining rights from employees, one of his handpicked agency heads has no respect for his own employees, and workers at the FSSA fear for their jobs. This is just the first eight months of a very long four years.

Mutual Contempt is a special case of Mimetic Nihilism.

Mimetic Nihilism is the title of a new book about the cancerous spread of nihilistic practices in our culture. These practices were recently dramatized in a long-running soap opera, "Bildungsroman in the Age of Character Assassination."

The book is written by Curbolo Firus, MMA. Mr. Firus is a well-known Homo Schleppian. He is a distinguished tour guide and drama queen, and the former Director of Public Negations at the Bunk Institute on Raging in Nosferatu California.

Mr. Firus is a graduate of the Schleppian School, where he received the coveted MMA (Master of Misapprehension) degree. When another reporter asked Firus what it was like at the Schleppian School, he allegedly quipped that it was like being in "some rough hell."

The book presents a withering criticism of the practice of Mimetic Nihilism, and concludes with a scathing criticism of itself: "This book not only makes a mockery of Mimetic Nihilism, it stands as a nefarious and unconscionable model of the very cancer which it passionately urges us to eradicate."
