Brutality Smeared in Peanut Butter

Standard

“To a distraught, confused people whose pride has just been wounded, whose loved ones have been tragically killed, whose anger is fresh and sharp, the inanities about the “clash of civilisations” and the “good v evil” discourse home in unerringly. They are cynically doled out by government spokesmen like a daily dose of vitamins or anti-depressants. Regular medication ensures that mainland America continues to remain the enigma it has always been – a curiously insular people, administered by a pathologically meddlesome, promiscuous government”.

- Arundhati Roy, 'Brutality Smeared in Peanut Butter' (2001)
