On Was David Mamet Ever Really A Liberal Anyway?

@GregM91436 Your account of Mamet the artist versus Mamet the cultural figure would probably fit snugly, mutatis mutandis, on Richard Wagner 130 years ago. An artist who inspired dozens of imitators, made great art and became immensely wealthy in the process, consumed by self-regard and a desire to throw bombs, and who's politics and writings were batshit crazy, paranoid, culturally conservative, subject to fashionable upper-class politics, married twice, consumed with racial pride...
