In my country, Poland, Mark Twain is know almost exclusively as author books for childrens (Tom Sawyer, The Prince and the Pauper). Most people are not aware that most of his works are for adults and have stron religious/philosphical themes.

This is the first time I've ever seen him in video.

I read her biographic book (meh), his biographic book (boring) (1/3 of his life, he never did live to finish the other two parts), Dharma Bums, On The Road, and other Kerouac books, Electric Kook-aide Acid Test, and countless other books on Neal Cassady, the beatniks, and hippies.

Even back then, I've always wondered of the MILLIONS of people out there, why this small circle of "free-thinking" authors were propped up and celebrated. Now I realize it was all nepotism, Jewish/military connections, and manipulated social engineering.
