Narcissistic Woundedness

When I listen to the US coverage of Central America, I’m always reminded of this hilarious moment in Jean Franco’s book Cruel Modernity where she blames the extreme violence displayed by a Mexican drug cartel from Michoacán on some American novelist whose cowboy novels supposedly taught the cartel how to be violent. It’s as if the existence of any situation where Americans aren’t at the center were almost physically intolerable.

    1. Yeah, I’m sure there was absolutely no other way for cartel members to learn about violence. They were a tender, innocent flowers until they read the novels.

      As for MRA, they are the real tender flowers next to the Latin American machismo.
