He’s a loathsome, offensive brute. Yet we can’t look away.
Oh the grandiosity. The pomposity. The insanity.
Charlie Sheen has our attention and we feel guilty for watching, but we can’t stop.
Can you believe what he’s saying?
He thinks he’s different. That the same rules that apply to the rest of us don’t apply to him.
He thinks he’s more highly evolved. He believes he can fix himself.
He’s convinced that he’s entitled to privileges denied to the rest of our lowly species because he’s special.
We hear what he says and we shake our heads and point out the idiocy of it all.
But this is not the first time we’ve heard these things is it?
How many of us secretly believe about ourselves what Charlie is saying out loud?
Charlie has crossed a line and has to be stopped.
The longer he’s allowed to verbalize these crazy thoughts the harder it will be to keep saying them to ourselves with a straight face.
