Accidental poetry


I copied and pasted a quote and this is what came out.

By  designating
the  cultural  as  arbitrary, Bourdieu  reverses  the  normal  perception  of
things,  which  is  that  the  sacred  objects  of  high  culture  are  such  because  of  some
quality
intrinsic  to  them.  From  this  essentialist  point  of view
they  deserve  their place
and  their  veneration  because  of
something  about  them  that  is
'real'-they  really  are
beautiful  in the way
that knowledge
is really
true
(and so really
is knowledge).  This,
in
fact,  Bourdieu  argues,
is an illusion.
