The correct attitude to art or to anything produced as a book is not to argue that was is contained therein is “evil”, for this reveals an inability to distinguish between reality and art/movies. Art — books and movies — are not reality but are capable of leading you to raise questions about reality. You are not meant to gobble it and make it a part of your fibre in the same way that you internalize the notion that there are terrorist controlled “no go” zones in London and Paris. Art is not fries and it is not KFC. You can’t go raving on at people, “I wanted to grow up, but not in this way that you are making me do!” It’s just fucking art. It’s not making you do anything.
