Quote of the Day | 9/12

It is perhaps melodramatic to say Americans are living in an age of fear. Because no one can stand much strength-sapping tension for very long, we have become exhausted, dispirited and small-minded, living through a period of inexpressible self-induced dullness, with a subtext of fear and uncertainty that is reflected in all phases of life. Popular culture — books, films, music – has never seemed more philistine and trivial and escapist.

Paul Theroux, ‘9/11 ten years on’
