A Favorite Writer’s Quote

Salman Rushdie said,

“Books choose their authors: the act of creation is not entirely a rational and conscious one.”

On a scale of one to five with five being highest, what would you give that quote?

Quote from Salman Rushdie About Regimes

 

 

Salman Rushdie stated:

“One of the strange things about violent and authoritarian regimes is they don’t like the glare of negative publicity.”

 

Strange indeed that they don’t understand cause and effect and can’t deal with the result.

Is Sinclair Lewis’s Novel It Can’t Happen Here Predicting It Can?

Amazon briefly describes this novel: “It is 1936. America has just elected Berzelius Windrip to the presidency-and his fascist policies turn the U.S. into a totalitarian state.”

Our reading group member selected it for February. Normally it’s not my preference in reading material, however the purpose of our reading group is to read a variety of books beyond what we normally choose. I’m finding it fascinating.

Wikipedia states: “It Can’t Happen Here is a semi-satirical 1935 political novel by American author Sinclair Lewis Published during the rise of fascism in Europe, the novel describes the rise of Berzelius “Buzz” Windrip, a politician who defeats Franklin Delano Roosevelt and is elected President of the United States, after fomenting fear and promising drastic economic and social reforms while promoting a return to patriotism and “traditional” values.”
