People ask if I miss it, but they don't understand that American culture is so ubiquitous that there's nothing to miss. I don't see myself moving back. It's not that I hate the United States. I just always thought it would be a shame not to live in a foreign country. Plus I like being a foreigner. It keeps me on my toes.

In America Quotes
Our paradigm now seems to be: something terrible happened to us on September 11, and that gives us the right to interpret all future events in a way that everyone else in the world must agree with us. And if they don't, they can go straight to hell.

In America Quotes
Our enemies are innovative and resourceful, and so are we. They never stop thinking about new ways to harm our country and our people, and neither do we.

In America Quotes
I'd move to Los Angeles if Australia and New Zealand were swallowed up by a huge tidal wave, if there was a bubonic plague in Europe, and if the continent of Africa disappeared from some Martian attack.

In America Quotes
I think one of the things about American culture is that it really doesn't matter too much where you live. All you need is an antenna and a modem, and you're pretty much in the mainstream.

In America Quotes
I feel that America is essentially against the artist, that the enemy of America is the artist, because he stands for individuality and creativeness, and that's unAmerican somehow. I think that of all countries — we have to overlook the communist countries of course — America is the most mechanized, robotized of all.

In America Quotes
I don't know if a country where the people are so ignorant of reality and of history, if you can call that a free world.

In America Quotes
Do I simplify all matters by saying that the US acts everywhere as an evil empire? Yeah, that would certainly oversimplify things. And that's why I pointed out that the US is behaving like every other power. The US happens to be more powerful so it's therefore, as you'd expect, more violent. But, yeah, everyone else is about the same. So when the British were running the world, they were doing the same thing.

In America Quotes
Despite the guarantee of free speech (and, thus, freedom of ideas), Americans have never become fully comfortable with the concept that ideas alone are not cause for dicrimination, either legal or contractual.

In America Quotes
Anyone who wants to get to know the South should get to know her women. They are tough, loving, frail and powerful. They hold so many of our best kept secrets.

In America Quotes
Americans love their captivity. There's no responsibility. When you're a captive, you don't have to make a decision about anything, though you have no Liberty. People don't want Liberty. Liberty is nothing but uncertainty. It's much easier to have someone tell you where you'll be, what you'll do and who you'll pay tomorrow than to worry about it yourself. The same goes for what you think.

In America Quotes
There are men—now in power in this country—who do not respect dissent, who cannot cope with turmoil, and who believe that the people of America are ready to support repression as long as it is done with a quiet voice and a business suit.

In America Quotes
The president has adopted a policy of ‘anticipatory self-defense’ that is alarmingly similar to the policy that imperial Japan employed at Pearl Harbor, on a date which, as an earlier American president said it would, lives in infamy. Franklin D. Roosevelt was right, but today it is we Americans who live in infamy.

We need food and water and they sent us men with guns.

In America Quotes
I assume the president’s going to say he got bad intelligence... I think that wherever you see poverty, whether it’s in the white rural community or the black urban community, you see that the resources have been sucked up into the war and tax cuts for the rich.

In America Quotes
One thing is for certain: There won’t be any more mass graves and torture rooms and rape rooms.

In America Quotes
Following the same course that virtually every other major industry has in the last two decades, a relentless series of mergers and corporate takeovers has consolidated control of the media into the hands of a few corporate behemoths. The result has been that an increasingly authoritarian agenda has been sold to the American people by a massive, multi-tentacled media machine that has become, for all intents and purposes, a propaganda organ of the state.

In America Quotes
If these precedents are to stand unimpeached, and to provide sanctions for the continued conduct of America affairs—the Constitution may be nullified by the President and officers who have taken the oath and are under moral obligation to uphold it….they may substitute personal and arbitrary government—the first principle of the totalitarian system against which it has been alleged that World War II was waged—while giving lip service to the principle of constitutional government.
