"A straight-talking analysis of America's global conduct during the Cold War and since, and what we're going to pay for it." ( The Nation)
"It is indeed a new post-Cold War ballgame, and Johnson's warning, if it were heeded in Washington, would help keep America safe from the temptation of untrammeled power." ( Newsday)

IF HE IS RIGHT...
If Dr. Johnson is correct about what's going on behind the scenes of the body politic, we are all pawns and puppets (and stooges?) in a feeding frenzy of money and power by the rich and powerful.
It is at least unsettling. For me, being a cynic by nature, it's frightening.

Terrorism is a symptom of foreign policy
If you ever thought that "they hate us for our freedom" you really should listen to what's in Blowback. From the CIA overthrow of the popularly elected Iranian president in 1953 until now, the government's policies and agencies purposefully interfere in the affairs of other countries, causing the loss of everything we supposedly hold so dear in our country, life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. We are just like every other empire that existed that will eventually fall due to corruption and the treatment of the people it subjugates unless "we the people" understand what our government is doing and put a stop to it.
