о безмозглых либералах

Дэйвид Мамет (драматург и режиссер) написал любопытную статью, и назвал ее "Почему я перестал быть безмозглым либералом".

"Либерал" здесь следует понимать, как в Америке, а не как в России.

I'd observed that lust, greed, envy, sloth, and their pals are giving the world a good run for its money, but that nonetheless, people in general seem to get from day to day; and that we in the United States get from day to day under rather wonderful and privileged circumstances—that we are not and never have been the villains that some of the world and some of our citizens make us out to be, but that we are a confection of normal (greedy, lustful, duplicitous, corrupt, inspired—in short, human) individuals living under a spectacularly effective compact called the Constitution, and lucky to get it.

Страшный человек просто-таки.
