Rebellion

leave a comment »

Just a quick post: I’m reading The New Yorker’s piece on Paul Haggis and Scientology and struck by the Great White Male Rebel trope in which they are seating Paul Haggis. As if “learning how to pick locks” to break in and “erase” one’s demerits in private school somehow symbolizes a rejection of authority. WTF did he care about demerits in the first place if he’s some rebel? OK, I’ll finish reading before I barf.
