Quote from: Barbara Tepa Lupak
Her only recourse is to have McMurphy lobotomized, a last attempt at castration Yet her victory is Pyrric: McMurphy has already passed his strength and manhood on to the other inmates so that not one phoenix but several rise out of the wasteland's ashes in his stead.  As the inmates begin to check themselves out or request transfers to other wards, she is voiceless and powerless to prevent them.  The silenced Madame Sosostris cannot rule the wasteland any longer.  Her icy facade melted by the heat of McMurphy's passionate defiance, Big Mom is no more.

Is "Big Mom" == "Mother Culture"?  (Daniel Quinn)
