"No, what really scares me is how easliy, how uncritically, people will believe the crap that slime like X deal out. How these X types produce nothing themselves, don't have an idea in the world, and talk so nice, how this slime can sway gullible types to any opinion and get them to perform on cue, as a group. And this group never entertains even a sliver of doubt that they could be wrong."
"If you make the effort, you get back what you put in."
-- Murakami Haruki, The Silence
"We're human, after all, and everybody's got something a little off somewhere."
Murakami Haruki, The fall of the Roman empire
