quotes from Coetzee’s Waiting for the Barbarians (what a quotable novel, seriously ^^) 

decided to draw some APH because I find America’s duality of nature absolutely fascinating (Born from an anti-colonial revolution- but an empire himself in many ways). And just the idea of how nations- especially superpowers and empires exist in this kind of dramatic climax of rising and falling, instead of this slow, peaceful static existence that doesn’t change. And it’s a paradox- they try to ensure they don’t end, but that’s exactly why they eventually fall.
