The Suicide of the West, part LXIV

From today’s SMH:

I never studied Shakespeare at school. My mother – an English teacher – told me I’d probably never need it.

[Disclosure: I only clicked on the link to see who the woman behind the pretty face was.]

By the way: Shakespeare’s writing is full of disdain for violent mobs. Given that the eruption of Nietzschean ressentiment in the US has now turned violent, his writing is more relevant than ever, I think.
