"Our perception of external reality is always coloured by preconception and expectation, and it is the subtle interplay of these a priori conditions with external stimuli that determines the form of experience. When [the one-time fascist, Ezra] Pound, for example, in a tantrum of frustration, rants about Englishmen being "vermin", and bootlicking", the mud does not stick. In the absence of a preconceived stereotype, his vitriol is neutralised, reduced to the absurd."
