What’s in a Name?

From the Washington Post today:

Next up: How Kafakaesque was Kafka? Was Old Blood and Guts really bloody and gutsy? How Platonically lovely was Plato’s life? Did Oedipus actually have an Oedipus complex? Was Christ a Christian? Was Buddha a Buddhist? 
Did Henry Ford truly practice Fordism?
Was Julius Caesar born by Caesarean section? Did Jelly Roll Morton eat jelly rolls? Was Homer really homeless? All this and more in Part 2 of this series.

Fact:

Mother Jones was founded as a nonprofit in 1976 because we knew corporations and the wealthy wouldn’t fund the type of hard-hitting journalism we set out to do.

Today, reader support makes up about two-thirds of our budget, allows us to dig deep on stories that matter, and lets us keep our reporting free for everyone. If you value what you get from Mother Jones, please join us with a tax-deductible donation so we can keep on doing the type of journalism that 2018 demands.
