The wisdom and timeless words of Mark Twain describing anarchist killer Luigi Luccheni seem to
fit Larry Gambone perfectly. Gambone is always dottering off about how old he is, but the rest fits
anarchist fools perfectly.
"And who is this miracle worker who has furnished to the world this spectacle? All ironies are compacted in the answer. He is at the bottom of the human ladder, as the accepted estimates of degree and value go: a spoiled and patched young loafer, without gifts, without talents, without education, without morals, without character, without any born charm or any acquired one that wins or beguiles or attracts; without a single grace of mind or heart or hand that any tramp or prostitute could admire him; an unfaithful private in the ranks, an incompetent stone cutter, an inefficient lackey; in a word a mangy, offensive, empty, unwashed, vulgar, gross, mephitic, sneaking, human polecat".
I encountered the quote in Claire Berlinski's Menace in Europe. The book is interesting but has a
few sections that are off. If you are interested in that theme stick with Bruce Bawer who treats the subject with much greater skill.
