Opinions

Vidal termed Russ Baker's Family of Secrets "One of the most important books of the past 10 years".

“It doesn’t actually make any difference whether the President is Republican or Democrat. The genius of the American ruling class is that it has been able to make the people think that they have had something to do with the electing of presidents for 200 years when they’ve had absolutely nothing to say about the candidates or the policies or the way the country is run. A very small group controls just about everything.”
Gore Vidal [1]
