The Secret Knowledge of David Mamet


The Weekly Standard: Converting Mamet:

“If we identify every interaction as having a victim and an oppressor, and we get a pellet when we find the victims, we’re training ourselves not to see cause and effect,” he said. Wasn’t there, he went on, a “much more interesting .  .  . view of the world in which not everything can be reduced to victim and oppressor?”

David Mamet has traveled from the political left to the political right. In his soon to be released book, The Secret Knowledge: On the Dismantling of American Culture, Mamet opines on the divisive issues of our time.
