Abstract

[T]he human condition is now so thoroughly medicalized that few people can claim to be normal.

If we are talking about assassinating world leaders, that is very close to the American mainstream. I bet if you took a poll right now of whether we should assassinate Kim Jong II, we could get 85 per cent of Americans to say we should. (Chuckles.) I think when Pat Roberston says things like that he is actually representing ... about two-thirds of the country. (Laughter.)
