>That was the fatal flaw in Kurtz's trip. He crashed around the Congo selling "imperial expansion" without ever giving a thought to the grim meat-hook realities that were lying in wait for all the pilgrims who took him seriously... All those pathetically eager ivory freaks who thought they could buy will and power for three shillings a pound. But their loss and failure is ours too. What Kurtz took down with him was the central illusion of a whole life-style that he helped create... a generation of permanent harlequins, failed managers, who never understood the essential old-mystic fallacy of European Imperialism: the desperate assumption that somebody... or at least some force - can lead into The Heart of Darkness(TM).”
