Quotable: “The pornography of violence, of course, far exceeds, in volume and general acceptance, sexual pornography, in this Puritan land of ours.

This idea has created cowboys and Indians, good guys and bad guys, punks and studs, tough guys and softies, butch and faggot, black and white. It is an ideal so paralytically infantile that it is virtually forbidden — as […]
