Banal

I’m beginning to worry about Greenfield:

Nothing is intrinsically anything. Everything a lawyer does is situational.

If he wants to be coherent and “not make people stupider” with what he writes – as he so often claims – he should either give that thought a much more thorough treatment (which would involve things like metaphysics and epistemology if he doesn’t want to frankly admit to being a nihilist); or on the other hand  abandon it, or if he can’t bring himself to do that, at least stop saying it so, so much as if it was axiomatic.

Sheesh.
