Good point - the necessity to "pick" with the Christians, I mean. The pick must not be too trivial, otherwise only the most desperate people will fall for the obviously horrid choice. Therefore evil has to be "cunning" to be able to "tempt".

Yes, agreed.


Let me tell you another story, my ex-girlfriend was a psychiatrist working in a mental institution, she told me one day they brought a schizophrenic woman claiming she has the devil in her. Now she immediately got suspicious because in here most of those people declare they are trapped by genies or something. (Genies are mentioned in many verses of the Quran.) But being possessed by the devil is not commonly heard of. Thus there is no tradition of exorcism but there is a traditional ritual to shoo the genies away. Anyway, she made a background check for the patient only to find out her childhood was spent in Germany. You guys ruined her schizophrenia

"You ask that? You, who killed your mother to come into this world? You are an ill-made, devious, disobedient, spiteful little creature full of envy, lust, and low cunning. Men's laws give you the right to bear my name and display my colors, since I cannot prove that you are not mine. To teach me humility, the gods have condemned me to watch you waddle about wearing that proud lion that was my father's sigil and his father's before him. But neither gods nor men shall ever compel me to let you turn Casterly Rock into your snowhouse."

Tywin is probably currently my favorite character. I loved the dialogues between him and Arya. He's just so.... in control.

A speech from "Other people's money":

Amen. And amen. And amen. You have to forgive me. I'm not familiar with the local custom. Where I come from, you always say "Amen" after you hear a prayer. Because that's what you just heard - a prayer. Where I come from, that particular prayer is called "The Prayer for the Dead." You just heard The Prayer for the Dead, my fellow stockholders, and you didn't say, "Amen." This company is dead. I didn't kill it. Don't blame me. It was dead when I got here. It's too late for prayers. For even if the prayers were answered, and a miracle occurred, and the yen did this, and the dollar did that, and the infrastructure did the other thing, we would still be dead. You know why? Fiber optics. New technologies. Obsolescence. We're dead alright. We're just not broke. And you know the surest way to go broke? Keep getting an increasing share of a shrinking market. Down the tubes. Slow but sure. You know, at one time there must've been dozens of companies making buggy whips. And I'll bet the last company around was the one that made the best goddamn buggy whip you ever saw. Now how would you have liked to have been a stockholder in that company? You invested in a business and this business is dead. Let's have the intelligence, let's have the decency to sign the death certificate, collect the insurance, and invest in something with a future. "Ah, but we can't," goes the prayer. "We can't because we have responsibility, a responsibility to our employees, to our community. What will happen to them?" I got two words for that: Who cares? Care about them? Why? They didn't care about you. They sucked you dry. You have no responsibility to them. For the last ten years this company bled your money. Did this community ever say, "We know times are tough. We'll lower taxes, reduce water and sewer." Check it out: You're paying twice what you did ten years ago. And our devoted employees, who have taken no increases for the past three years, are still making twice what they made ten years ago; and our stock - one-sixth what it was ten years ago. Who cares? I'll tell you. Me. I'm not your best friend. I'm your only friend. I don't make anything? I'm making you money. And lest we forget, that's the only reason any of you became stockholders in the first place. You want to make money! You don't care if they manufacture wire and cable, fried chicken, or grow tangerines! You want to make money! I'm the only friend you've got. I'm making you money. Take the money. Invest it somewhere else. Maybe, maybe you'll get lucky and it'll be used productively. And if it is, you'll create new jobs and provide a service for the economy and, God forbid, even make a few bucks for yourselves. And if anybody asks, tell 'em ya gave at the plant. And by the way, it pleases me that I am called "Larry the Liquidator." You know why, fellow stockholders? Because at my funeral, you'll leave with a smile on your face and a few bucks in your pocket. Now that's a funeral worth having!

Secondly, you must consider every man your enemy who speaks ill of your king; and thirdly, you must hate a Frenchman, as you do the devil. " - Lord Horatio Nelson.

I checked the date on this one and it's 1793. I guess all aristocracies were going quite paranoid that the French Revolution is gonna become a trend and spread around.

Quote:
The easy "critique of capitalism" is that "second prize is a set of steak knives" because that's how little it costs to motivate you to work harder for them, and if that doesn't work there's always "third prize is you're fired."  But the real wisdom which is not about capitalism but which is about narcissism comes from understanding that first prize isn't a Cadillac Eldorado, you think Alec Baldwin needs a car?   There is no first prize.  Real closers don't want the prize, they want to be the best, that's why they will practice practice practice and don't play the lottery.  The car is a temptation only for people who do not know their own value, the value of their own work, who won't lift a finger to advance themselves, who are motivated only by threats or by rewards, who would rather have the appearance of success than actual success. "I got an article in the Times!"  celebrates the person whose brain is broken.  "Alec Baldwin's character is a raging narcissist!" Jesus are you stupid, Alec's name is MacGuffin, that's why he's in Act I and never again yet propels the story forward.  It is irrelevant whether Alec Baldwin has metal testicles or pathological grandiosity, what matters is that after years of C minus work, what finally gets those dummies fired up is First Prize or Third Prize, left to themselves they meander in mediocrity while deluding themselves that they are more than what they do. "I was number one in '87!"  So was Alf.

"Monstering is, Ultimately, about giving  a ****. It's about giving something back to these b*****ds, these people whom we somehow let run our goddamn lives for us. Giving them a taste of what it means to be us. Every law that curbs my basic human freedoms; Every lie about the things I care for; Every crime committed against me by their politics- That's what makes me get up and hound these f*****s, and I'll do that until the day I die, or until my brain dries up or something.

That's what we achieve, We show them they're accountable. We show them that just as they try to herd us back into cages of quiet mediocrity, we can chase them back to f****** hell with the truth.

It's the Journalism of attachment. It's caring about the world you report on. Some people say that's bad journalism, that there should bea detached, cold, unbiased view of the world in our news media. And if that's what you want, there are security cameras everywhere that you could watch tapes of.

I want to humans talking about human life, personally. I want to see people who give a s*** about the world. I want... I want to see possessed journalists! Yes!

I want to see people like me, rising up with hate, laying about them with fiery eyes and steaming genitalia, possessed by ancient volcano gods from the Polynesian Islands, Waving vast breasts and improbable penises at the secret chiefs of the world! Naked Glowing God-Journalists brown-trousering the naughty twenty four hours a day, A new planet earth-

WAITER!!! Fresh underwear, seven blankets and a bucket of moist towelettes!"
