"The Handler and the Butterfly"

This video is still playing as I write this. I am thinking about the Thomas Harris novel, Silence of the Lambs. Serial killers abound, Hannibal Lechter and Buffalo Bill(Jame Gump). Both, exhibit characteristics of butterflies who have undergone metamorphosis into handlers.Gump, actually keeps moths/ butterflys as pets. Harris is definitely a craftsman (masonic). His writing is masterful. Gump and Lechter actually exemplify who our leaders are. (Similar to the Richardson character in this video.) Back to the novel,we have the female hero, Clarice Starling (a provincial rube, defeating the butterfly/handler character in Gump but only through a twist of fate as Harris explains it. No woman would ever really defeat a masonic handler. Preposterous! This is proven in the follow up story Hannibal, which weaves the devious machinations of what might be a rival masonic factional warfare (but that is a digression) where the woman (Clarice Starling) is but a helpless cog ultimately completely under the control of the master handler, Lechter.
Anyway, no mention of Harris in this video. Too bad. My two cents.
