What Would Hunter S. Thompson Say Today


I always wonder what Hunter S. Thompson would be saying today. I came across some quotes from his book "Fear and Loathing on the Campaign Trail of '72". I think I'm going to reread that book starting this week...

“If I'd written all the truth I knew for the past ten years, about 600 people - including me - would be rotting in prison cells from Rio to Seattle today. Absolute truth is a very rare and dangerous commodity in the context of professional journalism.”

― Hunter S. Thompson, Fear and Loathing on the Campaign Trail '72

“The whole framework of the presidency is getting out of hand. It's come to the point where you almost can't run unless you can cause people to salivate and whip on each other with big sticks. You almost have to be a rock star to get the kind of fever you need to survive in American politics.”

― Hunter S. Thompson, Fear and Loathing on the Campaign Trail '72

“The main problem in any democracy is that crowd-pleasers are generally brainless swine who can go out on a stage & whup their supporters into an orgiastic frenzy—then go back to the office & sell every one of the poor bastards down the tube for a nickel apiece.”

― Hunter S. Thompson, Fear and Loathing on the Campaign Trail '72
