The great gonzo journalist gives his characteristically acerbic take on the 21st century United States:
The National Treasury is empty, the Stock Market will never recover, our troops in Iraq will never come home. You will not find a job, never again.… Your children will drink dirty water for the rest of their lives. You will lose your home and all your personal savings.… You will never be able to retire or even stop working, and you will be a serf, a terminally indentured servant to one of the vast anonymous and eternally warlike global Corporations that will rule the world for their own reasons and their own profit.
- Hunter S Thompson
