Gore Vidal, who predicts a dictatorship in the US soon
, is a real spit and vittles kind of guy. If you've read any of his stuff you know he's a straight-out with it sort of guy, and says it like it is.

So is he right? Here is an anecdotal experiment - go to google and type in "can a human " into the search. You will get a drop down of suggestions based on common searches including your terms.. You may be shocked by what is on the top of the list.
