Funny thing is that this is the most violent thing I've written in some time, likely because of my intentionally quitting Paxil and the effects on my own psyche (which I do not keep in my feet), yet one of the themes is that the idea of redemptive violence is a myth. In the end, though, I end up questioning my own theme.
