Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

Lecter, just caught my eye.

Conjuring Hannibal Lecter, the master criminal who debuted in Silence of The Lambs. I have been as perplexed by theories of abnormal psych as the conspicuous elasticity of "normal" psychology since I started reading Freud years ago. Anyway, I planted a seed so to speak in reddit a couple of weeks ago during the Pocahontas and "brownface" revival, mentioning Buffalo Bill, the "unsub" hunched over a sewing machine. That image emerged from me repertoire of American pulp folklore --maybe attatchment disorder binds their pathology? I dunno. It's unfashionable wih the pros now who dispense pills repress everything, and I can't recall details in Harris' novels. But suddenly, mirthlessly the moment seemed to exemplify, or express rather rudely, an invidious desire in the "we" to assume or stake a claim on skin evoking dark passion, dark thoughts, dark deeds, and persecution as is convenient. This sort of crime of opportunity if you will is endemic and cheap.

What value "fine tuning" racial recognition features subtracts from delusions of danger gripping America's progressive tinkers is difficult to fathom.

Diversity is the key to economic and political evolution.
