book recommendation on that quote 14.May.2001 12:53

Mark

someone has written a book to help people stop "dreaming" that America is some sort of
default place to wish to live. Very detailed research about the United States across the military, education, social relations, families, poverty, housing, crime, corrupt political parties, socialism for the rich, the media, reduction of welfare. In his phrase the United States is the "rogue superpower."
