Despre religie: excelent dialog între McConaughey și Harrelson

De fapt dialogul se poartă între personajele pe care cei doi le întruchipează în noul serial True Detective (episodul 3). Asistau la prestația unui predicator și astfel s-a iscat discuția. Eu nu mai am nimic de adăugat. Aveți text și video mai jos.

Rust Cohle (McConaughey): What do you think the average IQ of this group is, huh?

Marty Hart (Harrelson): Can you see Texas up there on your high horse? What d'you know about these people?

Cohle: Just observation and deduction. I see a propensity for obesity, poverty, a yen for fairy tales, folks putting what few bucks they do have into little, wicker baskets being passed around. I think it's safe to say that nobody here is gonna be splitting the atom, Marty.

Hart: You see that? Your fucking attitude. Not everybody wants to sit alone in a empty room beating off to murder manuals. Some folks enjoy community, the common good.

Cohle: Yeah? Well, if the common good has got to make up fairy tales, then it's not good for anybody.

Hart: I mean, can you imagine if people didn't believe, what things they'd get up to?

Cohle: Exact same thing they do now, just out in the open.

Hart: Bull-shit. It'd be a fucking freak show of murder and debauchery and you know it.

Cohle: If the only thing keeping a person decent is the expectation of divine reward, then, brother, that person is a piece of shit and I'd like to get as many of them out in the open as possible.

Hart: I guess your judgment is infallible piece-of-shitwise. You think that notebook is a stone tablet?

Cohle: What's it say about life, hmm, you got to get together, tell yourself stories that violate every law of the Universe just to get through the goddamn day? No. What's that say about your reality, Marty?

Hart: When you get to talking like this, you sound panicked.

Cohle: Transference of fear and self-loathing to an authoritarian vessel. It's catharsis. He absorbs their dread with his narrative. Because of this, he's effective in proportion to the amount of certainty he can project. Certain linguistic anthropologists think that religion is a language virus that rewrites pathways in the brain, dulls critical thinking.

Hart: Well, I don't use 10$ words as much as you, but for a guy who sees no point in existence, you sure fret about it an awful lot. And you still sound panicked.

Cohle: At least I'm not racing to a red light.
