    'Crossing the Rubicon' by Michael Ruppert

    I have been following the FTW site for almost four years now, and Crossing the Rubicon is positively scary.

    What is even more wild is that more than sixty-thousand copies of Crossing the Rubicon have been sold and nobody I am aware of who has been accused of wrongdoing by Ruppert in the book has compained that Ruppert has his facts wrong.

    Two final words here 'Peak Oil'.

    •  That's Because Books Don't Matter (4.00)
      The reason something like Crossing the Rubicon can sell so many copies without public impact is that we're living in a time when books don't matter anymore.  The 24-hour news cycle killed books once and for all.

      Someone needs to make an instructive, explanatory, multi-pronged DVD of stuff like 'Rubicon' in order to help people weaned on TV News to truly absorb the very concept of 'people behind the curtain'.  Otherwise, we're left with these disparate websites.

      'The Power of Nightmares: The Rise of the Politics of Fear' is an excellent example of the kind of meta-historical documentary that's going to save us all, and one that I never hesitate to push on people.

      In fact, anyone reading this should feel free to email me to get a DVD+R burn of it which I'll be happy to mail.
