Gore Vidal

I have been watching American Masters on PBS. Last night was Gore Vidal. How interesting. Nicely outspoken and counter to the current, but refreshing. Refreshingly alarming.

I am not sure I would agree with a lot of what he says, but I am intrigued by his precepts. Enough that I may read some part of his works.

Maybe we have gone horribly wrong. I am not sure we are owned by corporate America. He likely subscribes to similiar thoughts as mine with regard to capitalism is a path to evil or at least largely anti Christian.

Post Script: there was an interesting quote by Arthur Schlesinger that stated “Histornians are prisoners of their (own experiences?)”
