As I have told you before, George, we don't know the half of what's going on here. Someday they may look back at me and see me as a tool of a government as bad as the Third Reich.
And while you're at it, I'd like you to lighten up on your criticism of Israel. Weren't you raised in a Jewish household? What would your mother say?
Read Heart of Darknessfor, like the hundredth time, such a good read. Those Belgians were some real bullies in the Congo. All that amputation and stuff. Grizzly.
Um, I would like to interject that Francis Ford Coppola did a marvelous job of adapting the horrors of imperialism to the screen. Beautiful panoramic shots of the jungle. Amazing cinematography… oh, that sunset!
We should have never gotten involved in that war. I don't even like to broach the subject.
Look, I'm the one who said that Communism is "Fascism with a friendly face." I get it.

Hey, Noam, buddy. Did you hear about the new mall opening up down the street? We'll have to go pick up some new duds. (Your whole slapdash intellectual look is getting a little tired. And time for some new frames, bro.)
Have you lost your marbles? When was the last time I went to a mall? With the possible exception of Cold Stone ice cream, I pretty much refuse to patronize any corporation. And those malls are pure corporate corruption.

That's cool. I just wanted to hang out. Maybe we could go visit the Statue of Liberty or something that doesn't involve shopping.
Do you know what would happen if someone saw me there? I can't be academia's biggest critic of American government, pointing a big bony finger at the smoke and mirrors of our democracy, and go to the bloody Statue of Liberty. Do you ever read my work? I feel like we're growing apart.
