Books, Literature, & Ideas

How Evil Wins: The Hypocritical Double Standards of Political Outrage. John Whitehead, OpEdNews
Life is good in America for the privileged few, but as I make clear in my book Battlefield America: The War on the American People <>, it's getting worse by the day for the rest of us.

The Greening of America’ Still Resonates. Frank Fear, LA Progressive“At the heart of everything is what must be called a change of consciousness… . This is what the new generation has been searching for, & what it has started to achieve. Industrialism produced a new man (sic)—one adapted to the demands of the machine. In contrast, today’s emerging consciousness seeks a new knowledge of what it means to be human, in order that the machine, having been built, may now be turned to human ends.” Excerpt from Charles A. Reich, ‘The Greening of America,’ The New Yorker, September 26, 1970
