It's a little edgy, but when asked for best American Fiction, I tend to list Book of Mormon in the list. This isn't to offend, though I'm sure it does, but to show that the border between fiction and non-fiction is not as clear as we would all like to believe. And that, in the end, it's the likes of these kind of writers, storytellers who last throughout history rather than the people we consider "writers".
In other words, like many traditions, many leaders, there's an Element of lying, of conman-gaming that goes on when it comes to telling stories that will last. And there's certainly an element of fan fiction to all of it as well.
In this age of fake news, of people willing to come up with the craziest of conspiracies, I have lamented, just a little bit, that I wasn't able to come up with something similar or at least use my own story telling skills to do the same. I have morals, you see, but the bills do pile up and I wonder if history is simply that those with morals miss the boat.
As it was so shall it ever be.
So take a look at this video with Alex Jones in a donkey mask and tell me he's not one of the best actors out there and that he shouldn't at least be nominated for the Oscars. This, my friends is performative art, theater at its best. Except this play has real consequences.
