Proud Infidel ranting about the ongoing war against democratic and secular values (Don't fool yourselves)! Maybe a voice of sanity in a wide ocean of madness.

And this years winner of the Nobel prize in litterature is ...

Jean-Marie Gustave Le Clézio.

Horray! Finally!

[Sarcasme mode off]

What the heck? Who is this guy? I've never even heard of him! Nor have I of the past two decades of Nobel litterature laurates, not before- nor after (except for that crypto- nazi guy who got it a couple of years ago). What are they thinking in the comiteé?

I guess it's the same thinking that has got Peanuts, yassir arafat, ANC, UN and gore the peace prize!
Ok, ok- it's the Norwegians who gives them away. Wonder who it will be this year? Usama Bin Ladin? Vladimir Putin? Hugo Chavez? Kim Jong Il?
It would not surprise me at all...

On a side note, non of the 1.4 gazillion muslims in the world has scored this year- again!

You´re funny. He is very well known among people who read novels. (But not among people who read Läckberg.)

No! I read novels. I read hundreds of novels every year. This guy are just not on my map! Maybe it's because he is a nonworthy author.
It can be that I'm an ignorant bastard, but I go for the first option!

Oh- and neither does 95% of the Swedish people as a whole according to a poll...

Funny stuff.

I've constantly be astounded by the Nobel Committee's coices for its "Peace Prize."

It's Economics Prize consistently goes to free market advocates, but its Peace prize often goes to appeasers and its Literature Prize often goes to some of the most obscure, though reliably Leftist writers, an interesting dichotomy, to say the least.

Off topic, but I've often wondered about the efficacy of having a "Peace Prize."

While peace is certainly an optimal condition and its preferable to conflict and war...there are indeed some things, in fact, MANY things that are simply worth fighting for - Western Civilization for instance, private property rights and individual liberty for a couple others.

A tyrant who was able to enslave the world and stifle all dissent would, without question, bring "peace," but hardly a peace worthy of celebration.
