DNF @ 5%

I received this from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.

I was hoping to read a balanced view of the current slow collapse of the American republic, but instead it's a book of solid bashing of conservative values. Definitely not going to finish this one!

St Fu Which conservative values does he bash? Seems to me, he's bashing fraud, greed, people not caring about each other.

Devogenes Pretty ambitious analysis for having read 5% of it.

Kelley Capitalism is not a conservative "value." In fact Hedges firmly stands for moral values and outlines how capitalism has worked to erode them. Get on the right side of the fight brother.
