Men bad. Women good.

Totalitarian regimes rely on collusion. Why did people like Aunt Lydia collude? It can be one of these things or a combination of two or all three. MA: And for those caught up in the command structure, they are inter-purging each other as quick as they can.

See a Problem?

MA: Right. They want to climb up the ladder. Keep the power. You do or die.

Inside the Transgressive, Deliciously Dangerous Mind of Margaret Atwood

Frequently both. MA: Different. You think Gilead is bad or that the TV series is too violent?

Look up the NKVD. People are saying Trump is re-creating Gilead. That guy went mad. MA: So suck it up! Why are you so afraid? No one is going to kill you right now. Anybody banging down your door? What you should be doing is figuring out who to vote for in the next election. Which candidate is going to take you the farthest he or she can from Gilead?

Not run to extremes, and the novels, both THT and The Testaments describe what happens when the society requires black and white thinking, nothing in between, no grays or pick your color from those crayons of yours—. MA: Well, there are certainly extremes in human behavior — serial murderers, socio- and psychopaths. But you can never define yourself as a pure angel and others as demons. There are no pure angels. For instance, there were people in the French Resistance who committed acts of sabotage against the Germans for which entire villages would be shot as retribution. So what would you have done?

And that particular truth transcends gender—as we see with Aunt Lydia and others? MA: It absolutely transcends gender. In fact some of the most effective operatives on either side were female. Guess who was an operative in the French Resistance? MA: What would you risk? What decisions might you make that could result in your death or the deaths of others? MA: Well, the more evil acts you do the more evil you are, but people are quite malleable.

You may run into a building to save another person, but you would not be called on to do that unless the building was burning. The other question is why do ordinary people do heroic acts? You are no fan of complacency —. MA: No kidding. None of the candidates are pure enough for you? Take the least worst. You are not too pure. People are too much in the habit of defining themselves as pure and in the know and everyone else as tainted, blind.

Your two young narrators are on the run, in a small boat:.

Now, go! And, go! MA: Yes, quite right. You can do it, America! Keep rowing. We thought our institutions would do the work for us, to keep us in check. Some witches too?

Alexa, Should We Trust You?

MA: Yes, they were all Puritans and there were a few accused witches among them. They were not actually having intercourse with the devil. Sorry, kids. MA: Stop that right now.

Handmaid's Tale Author Margaret Atwood Talks The Testaments Sequel, Trump, and Totalitarianism

Shame on you. Fake news. But yes, my ancestors were New England people who ended up in Nova Scotia. You should add that to your list of scary things: All those noses coming for you. I must say I felt just how present the Puritans were in all of us when I worked at Playboy.

Hefner did more than just objectify women, though he sure did that. The magazine was part of the campaign for civil rights and published some of the best writers and thinkers around, including you, at least when I was there. Which choice do you want? They thought any woman in any form was one big dollop of pollution. Puritans at least thought holy matrimony was a good thing and literacy: They wanted everyone to read the Bible, and they were very keen on the work ethic and very interested in their consciences, getting right with their consciences.

We all need to learn to apologize more and better. But many of the Puritans did not apologize. Follow the dollar — who benefitted? Who got the property? He urged his accusers to pile more rocks on him — they were trying to coerce a confession from him. I hope that poor man had a son—. The other model is slaves in America.

They might get the idea that they were people. I came to your Town Hall event with Samantha Bee and for every six or seven women there was one man.

I canvassed a few — these had watched the TV show but not read THT yet, but there were several very fervent fans. I spoke with one — a lovely guy, passionate.

He was proud to call himself a feminist. MA: Well, that series has men in the story. Schrijf een review. E-mail deze pagina. Ebooks lezen is heel makkelijk. Na aankoop zijn ze direct beschikbaar op je Kobo e-reader en op je smartphone of tablet met de gratis bol. Auteur: Chuck Barris.
