Fanatics and Fools

Arianna Huffington's latest book, Fanatics and Fools must be read by everyone with an interest in the politics of the United States of America. I don't have much hope in Americans ever waking up and changing the course of their country. Their political system is too sluggish, their ideology and belief in the 'American Dream' too set, the power of corporations too overwhelming for anything to be achieved. Even the disaster of 9/11 and the greater disaster of the presidency of George W. Bush was not sufficient to change the course of the United States. Still, we must remember that there are many Americans who are not pleased with the way their society is devolving, and we must sympathize with their plight.
