Jason Stearns quotes (showing 1-4 of 4)

“As so often happens in politics, what appears to be politically expedient for those in power rarely overlaps with the public interest. The lesser evils of the regime become entrenched, while the greater good is never realized.”
Jason Stearns, Dancing in the Glory of Monsters: The Collapse of the Congo and the Great War of Africa
“We saw you all dancing in the glory of the monster.”
Jason Stearns, Dancing in the Glory of Monsters: The Collapse of the Congo and the Great War of Africa
“You have guns; you don’t need a salary.”
Jason Stearns, Dancing in the Glory of Monsters: The Collapse of the Congo and the Great War of Africa
“The Congo is not just blood and gore. It also has an incandescent, raw energy to it, a dogged hustle that can be seen in street-side hawkers and besuited ministers alike. This charm is not unlike that of America’s mythical Wild West, full of gunslingers, Bible-thumpers, prostitutes, street urchins, and rogue businessmen. This is the paradox of the Congo: Despite its tragic past, and probably in part due to the self-reliance and ingenuity resulting from state decay, it is one of the most alive places I know.”
— Jason Stearns, Dancing in the Glory of Monsters”
