Kwame Kwei-Armah has been announced as the new artistic director of the Young Vic.

“Most voters treat politics like a spectator sport or, even worse, a brutal contact sport. The completely ignorant are what Brennan calls ‘hobbits’; by contrast, those who root for one team and hate the other are ‘hooligans.’ For hooligans, a little knowledge is a dangerous thing: They understand enough to be deeply convinced that their team is on the side of the angels and that the other side are devils. But they are incapable of rationally weighing policy options or even comprehending their own basic interests. For the hooligans, it’s all about identity.”

Everything must burn.
