's review

it was amazing
bookshelves: politics

This book is kind of an audit of the state of the nation. And it doesn't make for nice reading. It starts off with the impact lunatic right wing think tanks have had (and how they hide in plain sight as moderates) on the political landscape. And then it works its way thorough politicians, the media, the City and the police. I don't think I have previously read a book that has made me incrementally more angry as I turned each single page. And I don't think I've read a book that has convinced me so completely that the people who run the country have very little to do with democracy and the good of the common people. It's all self-interest. And they are screwing us over. The problem is, we've all been getting mad when we should be getting even.
