Bravo, Mr. Pinter

“The crimes of the United States have been systematic, constant, vicious, remorseless, but very few people have actually talked about them. You have to hand it to America. It has exercised a quite clinical manipulation of power worldwide while masquerading as a force for universal good. It’s a brilliant, even witty, highly successful act of hypnosis.” — Harold Pinter in his Nobel Prize for Literature acceptance speech; Pinter spoke via video recording from London.
