On the razor's edge
There’s just nothing, really, to be done. I don’t believe in political action anymore, I don’t believe anything can be changed for the better. All I see is relentless and terrible tragedy, falling pitilessly on the innocent and guilty alike. This is a world of lies, mostly, and the cruelest lie is hope, the most destructive of all the gifts in Pandora’s box.
And to abandon hope is to be free.
