For the past thirty years, David Mamet has been a controversial and defining force in theatre and film, championing the most cherished liberal values along the way. In some of
the great films and plays of our time, his characters have explored the ethics of the business world, embodied the struggles of the oppressed, and faced the flaws of the capitalist system. However, in recent years, Mamet has changed his views. He’s realized that the so-called mainstream media outlets he relied on were irredeemably biased, peddling a hypocritical and deeply flawed worldview. In 2008, he wrote a hugely controversial op-ed for The Village Voice, “Why I Am No Longer a ‘Brain-Dead Liberal,’ in which he methodically eviscerated liberal beliefs. Now he goes much deeper, exploiting his trademark intellectual force and vigor to take on all the key political and cultural issues of our times, from religion to political correctness to global warming.
