I grew up on this guy’s stuff. We don’t see eye to eye on everything but he did get a lot of stuff right. Plus he definitely was an American original. In his novel “Friday” he represented the balkanization of North America. I wonder whether he would be surprised by where we are today. My guess, probably not.
There is no worse tyranny than to force a man to pay for what he does not want merely because you think it would be good for him.
