Pynchon's book Vinland ,about ,in part ,cointelpro and gov't agencies coopting and destroying the political power of " the Movement" ie 60s antiwar counterculture,is hilarious and of course complex. Lighter than gravitie's rainbow.|

"Because the idea of American exceptionalism doesn’t extend to Americans being exceptional. If you excelled academically and are able to casually use 690 SAT words then you might as well have the press shoot video of you giving the finger to the Statue of Liberty while the Dixie Chicks sing the University of the Taliban fight song. The people who want English to be the official language of the United States are uncomfortable with their leaders being fluent in it."
