More From Gore Vidal
- "Half of the American people have never read a newspaper. Half never voted for President. One hopes it is the same half."
- "Apparently, a democracy is a place where numerous elections are held at great cost without issues and with interchangeable candidates."
- "As societies grow decadent, the language grows decadent, too. Words are used to disguise, not to illuminate, action: you liberate a city by destroying it. Words are to confuse, so that at election time people will solemnly vote against their own interests."
