Nice long interview up at Salon. Wish in retrospect that I hadn’t talked about Ron Paul so much, because, frankly, he bedevils me. So many of the things that come out of his mouth are manifestly appealing and sensible–but so many of his darker associations are genuinely frightening. Not all haters are poor either, though class anxiety is a huge driver of the worst of it. It was a long conversation, though, and when you write a provocative book that’s the best you can wish for–to spark long conversations, not just between yourself and an interviewer, but between thoughtful people out in the world at large.
