An apology for ?pedia

Joey, author of On Equilibrium, says that most non-fiction writing is eventually strange, blinkered, and pedantic from the perspective of later readers. Look at the baseless racism of much writing throughout history. Who knows what prejudice and lack of foresight will be seen in the writing of today? It's not only straight writing that suffers from this problem: even satire suffers from it, as the "truths" its ironies denote are also subject to the corrupting influences of cultural context.

Faced with sensible writing's many unsavoury meanings, the obvious solution is to rebel, to write things that mean almost nothing. With illogic instead of logic as the object, pieces of writing are incomprehensible at the time they were written, and their prestigously intentional stupidity can only increase over time.

So keep going, Illogicopedians! You're the saviours of literature!
