  •  Krugman's new book (1+ / 0-)
    Recommended by:

    Krugman's new book the "Conscience of a Liberal" really goes into detail about how the financial elite have used "the politics of deception and distraction" to manipulate the conservative movement into enacting their agenda to disenfranchise everyone but the top 1% of the American population.

    They have relied heavily on racism and religious bigotry to get middle class families and the working poor into slitting their own throats economically to pay twice as much as any nation on the planet for health care, to send their jobs overseas, to start illegal and immoral wars, to throw away their civil liberties and legal protections under the constitution and the bill of rights... all in the name of trying to deny these benefits to some other group of Americans, be they homosexuals, people of color, or people of a different faith.

    Yet they are the first to jump up to claim some moral imperative by testifying to their great religious faith and indeed forgetting the beatitudes... the gold standard of the Christian faith...

    41"Then he will say to those on his left, 'Depart from me, you who are cursed, into the eternal fire prepared for the devil and his angels. 42For I was hungry and you gave me nothing to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me nothing to drink, 43I was a stranger and you did not invite me in, I needed clothes and you did not clothe me, I was sick and in prison and you did not look after me.'

    44"They also will answer, 'Lord, when did we see you hungry or thirsty or a stranger or needing clothes or sick or in prison, and did not help you?'

    45"He will reply, 'I tell you the truth, whatever you did not do for one of the least of these, you did not do for me.'

    In many respects America is the victim of its own greed and serial rationalizations... the real evil in the hearts of many is unmasked by the current state of affairs in this country.
