Gore Vidal, RIP

Email Print

The death of Gore Vidal brings to mind many quotes — but, more importantly, the skeptical attitude — of this man. Among them the following: “We should stop going around babbling about how we’re the greatest democracy on earth, when we’re not even a democracy. We are a sort of militarised republic.” Another: “Apparently, ‘conspiracy stuff’ is now shorthand for unspeakable truth.”

He will be greatly missed.
