Baa, Baa, Lederer was right, we missed his points - and we are paying dearly for it!!!!
on January 1, 2017
I originally read this book in the mid-1960s and was not mature enough to quite understand the author's points; however, this second reading, and the political/social/cultural mess I have lived through during all that time, convinces me Lederer was right. We, the people, have given our thinking processes over to Big business/Big Government/and those who don't know how to do anything except manipulate money and the populace. The end of democracy in 2016, which has just expired, only contributed to my disgust with the insane world we live in. We are no longer a nation of freedom, only those who control the arms and purse strings have any freedom - we did it to ourselves by listening to the opinions of others and not accepting our own basic intelligence. A Nation of Sheep is a most appropriate epithet for individual liberity, an obituary for the form of government upon which the United States was formed: United States of America - RIP.
