As I say, one needs either a heaven or a hell in which to flourish—until one arrives at that Paradise of his own creation, that middle realm which is not a bread-and-butter Utopia of which the masses dream but an interstellar realm in which one rolls along his orbit with sublime indifference.
[Khamenei] is the new Hitler of the Middle East. He wants to create his own project in the Middle East very much like Hitler who wanted to expand at the time.
