"There are times, however, and this is one of them, when even being right feels wrong"

"There are times, however, and this is one of them, when even being right feels wrong. What do you say, for instance, about a generation that has been taught that rain is poison and sex is death? If making love might be fatal and if a cool spring breeze on any summer afternoon can turn a crystal blue lake into a puddle of black poison right in front of your eyes, there is not much left except TV and relentless masturbation. It's a strange world. Some people get rich and others eat shit and die. Who knows? If there is in fact, a heaven and a hell, all we know for sure is that hell will be a viciously overcrowded version of Phoenix — a clean well lighted place full of sunshine and bromides and fast cars where almost everybody seems vaguely happy, except those who know in their hearts what is missing... And being driven slowly and quietly into the kind of terminal craziness that comes with finally understanding that the one thing you want is not there. Missing. Back-ordered. No tengo. Vaya con dios. Grow up! Small is better. Take what you can get..."

Quem são realmente os ignorantes deste mundo?

Meus queridos alunos,

Enquanto corrijo os vossos testes podem crer que estou consciente que ignorantes mesmo são os idiotas que criaram esta crise com ganancia e contínua soberba. Os maus alunos do mundo hoje vestem fato e gravata, defendem as regras (ou falta delas) destes mercados selvagens e sem sentido de realidade e ainda ditam as leis e falam de diminuição de despesas enquanto conduzem os seus Mercedes com vidros fumados e desfilam a sua riqueza pornográfica. Vinguem-se destes tipos, por favor! Sejam melhores!
