Infinite Jest: The Fall of Entertainment

“In the Show they’ll get all they want of being made into statues to be looked at and poked at and discussed, and then some. For now they’re here to get to be the ones who look and see and forget getting looked at, for now.”

“But even you call it ‘The Show.’ They’ll be entertainers.”

“You bet your ass they will be.”

-David Foster Wallace, Infinite Jest (p. 661)
