Looking at some of the unfounded and idiotic bad reviews on this book, I ask -
Why is it easy to see corruption in countries like China, Russia, Venezuela, North Korea, and Cuba, but so hard to see the corruption in America? I believe it's because of so much brain-washing in Media, Education, and politics and while I love this country dearly, before we realized, we have become a near-fascist country.
As Rowley noted to her aggressive interviewer, a conspiracy is quite often simply "people deciding to do something bad". People who make such a decision aren't likely to announce it in a press release, hence the logical requirement of secrecy. Likewise, some misdeeds would require more than one person to be successfully carried out, hence the accompanying notion of collusion in private. Yet the idea of two, three or more people in key positions of power privately deciding to do something nefarious is viewed by the mainstream media as an invention of the mentally insane. Criminals might do it, the Mafia might do it, doctors or dentists or lawyers might occasionally do it (as folks from all walks of life are prosecuted for criminal acts every year), but the idea of certain politicians or elements within a government colluding to commit a criminal act is somehow viewed as beyond the pale.Read more ›
