You Can Get the Computer to Write Political Science For You

I asked the computer for a randomly generated gibberish sentence in political science. I got this.

The emergence of praxis functions as the conceptual frame for the legitimation of the nation-state.

That's more than a little scary. I'm pretty sure that that was the main argument of Ari Kohen's PhD thesis. Now.... we know.

It's scary, but there is no verb. Thus, it's not a sentence.

The verb is "functions". The subject is "emergence".
