Damn, he thinks. General Stubblebine is confounded by his continual failure to walk through his wall.
Maybe there is simply too much in his in-tray for him to give it the requisite level of concentration. There is no doubt in his mind that the ability to pass through objects will one day be a common tool in the intelligence-gathering arsenal. And when that happens, well, is it too naive to believe it would herald the dawning of a world without war? Who would want to screw around with an army that could do that? General Stubblebine, like many of his contemporaries, is still extremely bruised by his memories of Vietnam.
These powers are attainable, so the only question is, by whom? Who in the military is already geared toward this kind of thing? Which section of the army is trained to operate at the peak of their physical and mental capabilities?
And then the answer comes to him. Special Forces! Fort Bragg is vast—a town guarded by armed soldiers, with a mall, a cinema, restaurants, golf courses, hotels, swimming pools, riding stables, and accommodations for forty-five thousand soldiers and their families.
The general drives past these places on his way to the Special Forces Command Center.
This is not the kind of thing you take into the mess hall. This is for Special Forces and nobody else. What is he about to unleash? In the Special Forces Command Center, the general decides to start soft. The Special Forces commanders nod. How do you deal with that?
There is a silence. General Stubblebine finds himself beginning to stammer a little. I am not presenting this correctly. He glances anxiously at the clock. What if time has an X-axis, a Y-axis, and a Z-axis? What if time is not a point but a space? At any particular time we can be anywhere in that space! Is the space confined to the ceiling of this room, or is the space twenty million miles? We are defining the boundaries of normality by ruining the lives of those outside it.
We are using shame as a form of social control. Simultaneously powerful and hilarious in the way only Jon Ronson can be, So You've Been Publicly Shamed is a deeply honest book about modern life, full of eye-opening truths about the escalating war on human flaws — and the very scary part we all play in it.
