21st Century: Query 117 (Hunter S. Thompson)
“I believe the Republicans have never thought that democracy was anything but a tribal myth.”
~ Hunter S. Thompson, gonzo journalist was an American journalist and author, and the founder of the gonzo journalism movement. He first rose to prominence with the publication of Hell’s Angels (1967), a book for which he spent a year living and riding with the Hells Angels motorcycle gang in order to write a first-hand account of the lives and experiences of its members.
How might “Democracy” be considered a “tribal myth”? How is Thompson correct or incorrect in his belief about Republicans?
