Perpetual War for Perpetual Peace: How We Got to Be So Hated, Causes of Conflict in the Last Empire
In Perpetual War for Perpetual Peace, the masterful, award-winning writer Gore Vidal transcends the simplistic black-and-white sloganizing of politicians and the corporate-sponsored media. Far from being an apologist for terrorism, Vidal makes a rational investigation into the causes behind the devastating events of 11 September and the Oklahoma bombing. He even enters into a remarkable correspondence with McVeigh, partially reproduced here. One of the last great independent thinkers, Vidal refuses to be steamrollered by the weight of 'received wisdom' and media consensus. 'Things just happen out there in the American media, and we consumers don't need to be told the why of anything', he observes. Unsuprisingly, his attempts to publish an essay on 11 September met with failure in his native USA.
