“I think about Nietzsche a lot. I know what the Overman is. I know I can endure without killing

anybody because I’m always close. Some people don’t have any decency or respect.

When we’re out and we see a guy like that, I’m thinking I wish he would say something to my wife. I’d blow his brains out. Those people are out there, but I got to stop thinking that way, I’m trying to restrain that, to be the new guy, but how much of my balls do I have to cut off to be this new guy?”

On the next page he recreates Sam’s famous pose from James M. Flagg’s 1917 recruitment poster urging Americans to join the war against who else but Germany – but here the stern head-masterly call to individual action becomes the pointing finger of a collective accusation aimed directly at Germanica – ‘We want you! To pay for your crimes!’
