3 thoughts on “A discussion about “Trinity” with Regis Tremblay from Crimea”

  1. Ed, I enjoyed the conversation, the range of topics, and the passion. But, is it possible your public library lacks works by Tolstoy, Hemingway, Fitzgerald, Vonnegut and Bradbury? A check at our larger one in Pittsfield today showed all were well represented except Tolstoy with only three works, and it’s possible that other books of his had been borrowed and are actually being read. Also, it’s likely that more recent writers on those same fiction shelves whose names we don’t recognize are worth reading, and are dealing in their own ways with some of the same realities of the last several decades that you and Tremblay were talking about.

  2. Thank you for posting this outstanding conversation. Sadly, I have come to see that in the United States, evil has become normalized. It is hard to see it in any other way–in this ugly trivialized dishonest and materialistic culture. The discussion on symbolism was interesting–I would recommend Patrick Smith’s book Time No Longer–published in 2015, I think. He traces the pernicious doctrine of “American exceptionalism” to a process that turns history into myth. I have provided a link to my review of the book on my website below.

  3. Thanks for fascinating discussion. Must join Friends of Crimea and Friends of Russia. It’s terrible that the fear of nuke weapons is being hidden under auspices that it hasn’t happened yet. all under control,, etc. Though it did happen for civilians in Hiroshima and Nagasaki, used as experiments by America’s dreadful leaders of the time. The thought of those nuke submarines roaming the earth, given names like Corpus Christi, is horrifying and blasphemous. Not many know about that…many thanks – Kay
