Sully catches Nooners waxing philosophic about torture:
“Some things in life need to be mysterious … Sometimes you need to just keep walking.”
The following is disturbing and I won’t want to include it in this post, but it’s been rattling around in my head apropos of torture after reading a bit of a Wells Tower short story about an unprovoked Viking assault on nearby island. I think that if we’re honest with ourselves, we have to face the fact that we are the kind of society that now condones this sort of thing (to some extent, the story may be a metaphor for the Iraq war). Edit: I took out the graphic description from the story. You can read it at the link.
I find all of this terrible to think about, but to just “keep walking” is barbarism.
