How can you be an atheist and have an ideology to go with it? To be an atheist is to be free of some areas of belief. I don’t see how that can become an ideology.

V.S. Naipaul

The interview itself seems to be replicated verbatim, which makes it fascinating to read, even if you don’t care about Naipaul.
