    A black Sorbonne graduate told me over a glass of French wine in a bar in Dakar that once Africans get the atomic bomb, their first one will be dropped on Liverpool, the slave port of their diaspora.

So it is that in the Twentieth Century, we have evidence that many great authors saw the purpose of the novel as conferring upon author and subject 'a sense of belonging'. It never dawned on them that it isn't race but cause that makes people soldierly or not. Fate, destiny, tragedy, all became "politics," thus destroying a belief in the sense of history, in justice ultimately governing human affairs. In the West maimed veterans no longer need to beg, but a new class of the disinherited and the locked-out les exclus, as the French call them has taken its place in the streets, and we will never understand the violence of its members if we do not realize just how familiar a figure death is to them. On the contrary, employers cut social cost to themselves and increase social cost to the community by firing some people and putting the rest on ever more overtime.
