A sampling of some quotes demonstrate this clearly enough:
"Politician, student, or professor – it’s the same mentality, played out differently, but amounting to the same thing – “We hate what has happened. Our country is lost, our hope is gone - we can never…” and on and on. Did the Republicans act this way in 2008 and in 2012 when Obama won these elections? Of course not!" p.48 (Yes they did, actually. Look at all the attacks on Obama's character and policies, including the nooses and rise of white racists, even the times Rep. forced critical shutdowns of the Govt, all in hopes to smear Obama.)
"Common sense is something that socialists (and most leftist liberals) have in short supply." p.50 (this is obviously an attack lacking evidence, since it has an all/none mentality. It's really saying no liberal person has any common sense.)
However, there is not a complete failure of "common sense" in the text: "We must strive to educate our citizens, whoever they are and in whatever condition they are in, to become interested in their government and in its workings." p.70
Yes, we do need to educate our citizens so they are able to think clearly, do research, and not accept the discourse of those of wealth or positions of power/authority as factual, when the claims they make are not accurate or factual.
If you are in goose step with Trump, you will LOVE this text. If you are a rational thinker, with reasonable critical thinking skills, care about your fellow human being, or even understand how the U.S. Govt should work, this text will be a disappointment on several levels. It's disappointing because it is a political diatribe by someone that does NOT understand "socialism" but has accepted the faulty discourse against it as gospel. It's actually laughable the "solutions" the author claims will work, because they are partly rooted in socialist thinking.
Summation: At best, it offers some ideas to ponder, but you'll have to dig deep and wade through a lot of ideological garbage. At worst, it fuels the ignorance of division, sexism, racism, classism, religious intolerance, and even, although it suggests otherwise, an uneducated citizenry.
This poor fellow is an old white dude who is mad at the problems of the world. Of which there are many, but they will not be solved by anger and division. The solutions are complex, but they will never be reached by texts like this that fail to realize reality with clear eyes that understand humanity, justice, tolerance, compromise, and honor. This books becomes, basically, a man screaming into the mirror saying "DO SOMETHING!" (which the person/group this author thinks should do something is exactly the group he's against, not himself being part of the solutions, and that's too bad.)
Oh, and I'm an independent, not R or D.
His message and advice are so right on. Everyone, especially those who are so enamored of the.progressive socialist movement should read this book and seriously consider what is happening to our country
