A Dumbshow Composed of the Helpless and the Impotent

“In my father’s last letter he said that the world is run by those willing to take the responsibility for the running of it. If it is life that you feel you are missing I can tell you where to find it. In the law courts, in business, in government. There is nothing occurring in the streets. Nothing but a dumbshow composed of the helpless and the impotent.”
― Cormac McCarthy, Suttree

    • I’m a huge fan of Cormac McCarthy – actually, “The Road” is my least favorite (though I still think it is very good – probably his easiest read). You want something dark – read “Blood Meridian.”
