    What lies beneath: American Gothic - Independent.ie

    Sigmund Freud thought America the great experiment but he wasn’t so sure if it would work. The land of the free and the home of the brave is still a work in process. Made up of 50 states and many more different worlds, it’s where Harry Potter was banned in some states for promoting occultism and paganism; marijuana is now legal in Colorado; gay marriage is recognised in 14 states while some other states are Bible-thumpingly conservative. It gave us both Disney and Breaking Bad. America had Prohibition, put man on the moon and, frightening to think of it, but the obscenties and injustices depicted in 12 Years a Slave belong to a time in that nation’s history that isn’t that far back.
