http://www.villagevoice.com/2008-03-11/news/why-i-am-no-longer-a-brain-dead-liberal/ A fantastic op ed piece written by one of the greatest modern playwrights of our time. He wrote this piece in the Village Voice in 2008. I stumbled over this only because I was in the bookstore the other day and saw a book he just published. http://www.amazon.com/Secret-Knowle...=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1309726004&sr=1-1 Mamet brought us "Glengary Glen Ross", "Wag the Dog", "The Spanish Prisoner", "American Buffalo", "House of Games" and "The Untouchables". Mamet was a life long liberal. Then one day he had an awakening. And this op ed piece is the result. If you are going to comment on this thread, please read his piece first.
