Cheney’s perspective

John Perry Barlow

[Dick] Cheney believes the world is an inherently
dangerous place and he sees the rest of the world
as… populated by four-year-olds with automatic
weapons.

Reading this quote by Barlow in the book Vice: Dick Cheney and the Hijacking of the American Presidency helped me understand why I struggle so much to relate to him at all. Not personally but politically. It’s frequently hard to make sense of his paranoia, sense of entitlement and obsession with secrecy. Barlow’s quote makes it a bit easier to decipher the madness behind his methods.
