Indeed, much of that US violence is grounded in if not expressly justified by religion, including the aggressive attack on Iraq and steadfast support for Israeli aggression (to say nothing of the role Judaism plays in the decades-long oppression by the Israelis of Palestinians and all sorts of attacks on neighboring Arab and Muslim countries). Given the legion human rights violations from their own government, I find that Americans and westerners who spend the bulk of their energy on the crimes of others are usually cynically exploiting human rights concerns in service of a much different agenda.

—————

Sam Harris on Israel, from The End of Faith: “Judaism is as intrinsically divisive, as ridiculous in its literalism, and as at odds with the civilizing insights of modernity as any other religion. Jewish settlers, by exercising their ‘freedom of belief’ on contested land, are now one of the principal obstacles to peace in the Middle East.”

Also from The End of Faith: “Christian ‘support for Israel’ is, in fact, an example of religious cynicism so transcendental as to go almost unnoticed in our political discourse. Fundamentalist Christians support Israel because they believe that the final consolidation of Jewish power in the holy land—specifically the rebuilding of Solomon’s temple—will usher in both the second coming of Christ and the final destruction of the Jews.”

But Glenn Greenwald would never participate in any kind of “quote mining” and is certainly not a complete fucking moron. (He is)

'Do you remember how Mohammad Atta magnificently flew that plane into the south tower? That was an unmanned Jewish missile'

'So… Wait a minute, wait. So you, like, reckon he tricked the Jews into doing it for him?'

'Have you not been listening, brother? What happened is, Bin Laden, he didn't it.'

'He didn't it?'

'He didn't it.

This movie is the first time I’ve laughed until tears came out since I’m Still Here.

But this conversation, from a deleted scene, might be the most hilarious part.

Bret Easton Ellis

I haven’t read any of his books and am wondering what I should start with.

The only list I found online was on some atrociously coded, over stylized website, and I couldn’t get through it.

Any recommendations?

Honesty, for me, is usually the worst policy imaginable.

Somewhat related to that last post

Everyone should see Ripley’s Game with John Malkovich.

It’s the only Ripley film I’ve seen that shows the same character from the books.

The Matt Damon film amplified the hell out of the gay thing and made it into this ridiculous showing of transgression from the director who seemed to think that two guys fucking would be far more taboo and interesting than a character study of Tom Ripley. (nothing is more interesting than a character study of Tom Ripley)

Also— Ripley isn’t gay. Ripley is Ripley.

Pat Highsmith—an accomplished, original, immensely alluring twenty-nine-year-old with murder on her mind—saw her first novel, Strangers on a Train (1950), made into a feature film by Alfred Hitchcock in 1951. That book posed what was to become the quintessential Highsmith situation: two men bound together psychologically by the stalker-like fixation of one upon the other, a fixation that always involved a disturbingly, implicitly homoerotic fantasy. Nothing, it turns out, could have been more American.

Nothing can possibly live up to the ideals and fantasies you’ve created. So we suffer because things are not the way we think they ought to be. Rather than face what really is, we prefer to retreat and compare what we’re living through with the way we think it oughta be. Suffering comes from the comparison between the two.
