“It is not at all uncommon for someone to arrive at a scene of brutality or injustice and, with a sympathetic murmur or heroic flourish, attack the victim. It happens all the time.” — Renata Adler, Speedboat, 1976

  1. I wonder why that it is. Is it easier to attack the victim rather than the perpetrator? It is similar to the question posed to past or present survivors of abuse: “Why didn’t/don’t you just leave?”
