RKS Passage of the Day: Jean-Paul Sartre: “The Reprieve” A Summary of Trump?

“He looked at his feet to avoid all those merciless faces: ‘hulking brute!’. He was a proper human wall, one of those callous cruel brutes, like that hulking boy Chamerlier in the elementary mathematics class who snapped fingers in his face at school, one of those types who never question anything, least of all themselves, who are never ill, never suffer from nerves, take women and life as they come, and march straight to their goal, shoving all who get in their way against shop windows.”

Jean-Paul Sartre, “The Reprieve” Penguin Book 1963
