The Trouble with Judith | Culture | Vanity Fair

by peterjukes

Judith hates authority (and, conversely, loves power). She’s got an 800-pound chip on her shoulder. And the chip is part of how she’s made money—she’s tapped into a vein of American resentment and victimhood, plus she’s been able to bully her way into the market—and making money gives a pass to even the worst manners.

Also, her world, on top of being so profitable, is clearly such a harrowing, bleak, sordid place—Hobbesian with a twist of sexual perversity and degradation—that I don’t think anybody wanted to look too closely at it or risk getting drawn into it.
