Besides, who defines the parameters of these arguments? Hey, an English person can’t talk about an American thing! Oh yeah, I remember know, from that rulebook that fell out of the sky at the dawn of time! Hey, what is American by the way? Some word people said in relation to a geographical mass a couple of hundred years ago! [laughing]
As long as you know that all of this stuff is arbitrary—that karate is invention, that Catholicism is invention, that America in an invention—but that humanity is an actual thing, we don’t have to all pretend to believe this shit.
What’s actually important? A human being doing a thing that was quite bold—possibly from a position of some personal trauma—but that regardless has brought attention to important stuff. We all know that shit goes on! But he’s brought palpable, tangible evidence of mendacious—oh no, don’t want to use that word again—conduct apparently for the protection or for the furtherment of the American people.”
