    1. This is about as discouraging and self defeating a polemic as you could imagine if you re on my end of the simplistic ideological spectrum that we are currently burdened with in this country This is so intellectually weak, so vapid, so historically uninformed, so emotional, and so pragmatically useless, I can t even begin to tell you This book is almost complete nonsense as far as I can tell.
