Insect politics

In case you had forgotten:

"Have you ever heard of insect politics? Neither have I! Insects don’t
have politics…. they’re very brutal. No compassion…. no compromise.
We can’t trust the insect. I’d like to become the first insect
politician. I’d like to, but…. I’m an insect…. who dreamed he was a
man, and loved it. But now the dream is over, and the insect is awake."

That’s from David Cronenberg’s The Fly.  I was reminded of the scene by this post.  Best of all, the YouTube of that scene is here.  I will genuinely be glad when this campaign is over.

Addendum: The new operatic version of The Fly is receiving negative reviews.
