    Carlin was a hypocrite, and his fans were fools.

    People paid $100 + for Carlin’s headline shows in Vegas. People paid good money to a man who was already a multimillionaire and who told them that the American dream was dead.

    Suckers…

      So you expected him to do what? Not make a living for himself? He got lucky more than anything, that’s what got him in the spotlight. And therein lies the fallacy of the American Dream. It has nothing to do with working hard, it is more left to chance, and the socioeconomic background you’re born into (with some exceptions, of course. But I don’t want to stray from my point now). Once in the spotlight, he took the opportunity to speak on important social issues, while making people laugh. I fail to see any problems with this. We all have to be hypocrites in order to stay alive in society.

      But anyways…

      Regardless of what you think of his personal life (which I personally have qualms with), he spoke words that ring very true, and words that still make people think and question. That was and still is the importance of the man.
