A Philosophical Treatise on Spying
on June 2, 2015
Jim Olson is a true patriot. While I was hoping for cloak and dagger spy stories, this book is about what the title says - no subterfuge here. Having said that, I was bored as he wrestled with his theme citing philosophers, some long-gone and others fairly new, quoting their writings, and even scripture, on both sides of the dilemma. I personally side with those who say you gotta do what you gotta do and let the moralists agonize over it. In fairness I thought the scenarios he presented at the end were very good, thought provoking.
