I'm a born-again atheist.
Gore Vidal reached amazing heights but missed out on main ambitions;
That is just an assumption of journalists.
I think Gore Vidal missed out on nothing. He was a great thinker. He could never have been a politician, not like it is mentioned because he had an acerbic view of USA, he relied on justice and politics are not made of justice. Because he was a homosexual he was dismissed from politics. If he would have been a practicing hypocrite of any religion he would have been accepted with open arms, that’s how the establishment works
His analysis of America. Politically, she was a corrupt and failing empire with a government that ruled through paranoid invocation of national security. However, he liked to reassure people that there was no risk of American culture dying – because it had never existed.
"The genius of our ruling class is that it has kept a majority of the people from ever questioning the inequity of a system where most people drudge along, paying heavy taxes for which they get nothing in return"
A sad day, a fine man has died.
