Pop Talk: The Icarus Effect

Pop Talk: The Icarus Effect

"Is there any wisdom to draw from the car crash called Charlie Sheen? In all of us — or nearly all of us — there's a little voice that tells us that our life would be better if we were paid $1 million a week. That life would be better if our partner carried out our every order instead of arguing the toss. That life would be better if we could just binge on our favourite drug, whether it be grog, food, self-obsession or something illegal. Charlie Sheen shows us what happens when someone is allowed, as he puts it, to be "grandiose", to live without restraint of any kind."
