The Assault on Reason - Gore's New Book is a Good Read
I was surprised a bit at how easy to read this book is, although it is quite repetitive. The message is clear, the experiment in democratic governance of our Republic is at risk, and with it, the climate system of the globe. Quite a clear view of what has changed - which is how we as a people communicate and participate in the debate of policy from the days of nation's birth to the end of the 20th century and the beginning of the 21st. From a kind of free for all for all of those who were able to read and write to a one way brainwashing at the hands of television, mainly because it allows citizens to inertly sit and watch while denying them the opportunity to "talk back" and be heard by anyone.
Still have a few dozen pages to read, but the dissection of GWB's administration is spot on, and the just announced invoking of "executive privilege" over the fired attorney's cases just fits right in to the pattern of deceit and secrecy, no debate, follow my lead because I am in contact with God, and the selling of a vision of world dominance achieved by force while taking every short cut through the principles of the nation's Founding Fathers in the Constitution needed to further consolidate power in the executive branch. I can see Gore being viewed as a threat to the heartless and soulless cadre at the center of the facist core of Bush's most important supporters, which is likely why he is not pushing his candidacy for President. Without naming names, other than Bush and Cheney and Rumsfeld and Rice and few others in the administration, Gore identifies the basic characteristics of Bush's main supporters, and they are a scary lot - no interest in America, nation we learn about in our elementary school through high school history and citizenship classes, just a selfish motive to push their greedy, short sighted interests in power and wealth, wealth and power, and domination of their competition.
