I'm Quoted in a Text Book Called Perspectives on Ideology

quoteOn my way to hockey last night, I made a quick stop at the Purolator depot to pick up a package they've been trying to deliver to me. It was a textbook from Oxford University Press entitled "Perspectives on Ideology". For the life of me last night, I couldn't figure out who sent it to me or why.

This morning, my wife cracked the case. She found a letter on page 376 from Oxford University Press that explained I'm quoted in this text book. Here's the letter:


I guess I gave permission at some point and totally forgot about it. I quickly jumped to page 376 and found myself quoted between an MP and Ayn Rand. Not bad...


The actual entry they printed can be found right here.

As @vinaymenon just pointed out, being quoted in a text book entitled Perspectives on Ideology makes me sound like a freedom fighter, and there's absolutely nothing wrong with that.

Fun Fact: In the index at the end of the text book, I'm listed right after Napoleon Bonaparte.

Napoleon needs better pr because the first thing I think of when I think of the dude is his palindrome.

If I was you Mike, I'd put a 9mm Baretta in my mouth and pull the trigger.

Irvine, please stop sharing with us how YOU would solve YOUR personal problems. You stupid DINK!

OK Mike from Lowville....

I have another take. Referencing that cowardly killer, Che, is an insult to all true freedom fighters. That slime-ball killed thousands and thankfully was offed by the Bolivians.

Anyone who wears his image on a t-shirt is no better than a neo-Nazi who idolizes Hitler.

That's actually a very fair statement.
