MORE PURLOINING FROM MICKEY Z.
Okay, so I buy his books and I link to his site very often. I can’t help that he’s always got stuff worth stealing, so I steal it. Today’s booty is a quote from the late French writer/filmmaker/theoretician Guy Debord:
This perfect democracy fabricates its own inconceivable enemy, terrorism. It wants, actually, to be judged by its enemies rather than by its results. The history of terrorism is written by the State and it is thus instructive. The spectating populations must certainly never know everything about terrorism, but they must always know enough to convince them that, compared with terrorism, everything else seems rather acceptable, in any case more rational and democratic.
