Sintesi dell'editore

Recalling the classic warnings against militarism, from George Washington's farewell address to Dwight Eisenhower's denunciation of the military-industrial complex, Johnson explores the trend of militarism that is bankrupting the United States and creating conditions for a new century of virulent blowback.

A must read.

A must read for anyone who cares about the coup and the imminent destruction of America. The jihadis have won.

Shouted required reading

The facts are quite confronting and alarming. The book was put together and researchrd beautifully. I would’ve liked some answers and specific points, that we, as US citizens could do, to restore our empire to the republic for which we stand.

Brilliant.

Should be required reading of all politicians in America. As Americans, 10 years after the death of the author, he remains a powerful voice questioning the Underpinnings of what we are told our national security depends on and does it with piercing logic.

Petty Garbage

Johnson clearly has a personal ax to grind w/ the military. Which was unfortunate because he has a lot of great stuff in this book. I just couldn’t get past statements such as in chapter 2 when he he said, “they teach the youth of America arrogance and racism…”. As a veteran myself i find that to be utter dumbassery. A bombastic generalization.

Good to know

I remember all this going on. It’s interesting to see how some of this played out and the consequences.

Outstanding!

Sadly, based on the publication date, this book can be considered prophetic. Nonetheless, it is still a must read for anyone who wants a thorough understanding of what is going on in the world today.

Disturbing and Thorough

I have long been suspicious of the military industrial complex (thanks Dwight!) and yet this took things to another level entirely. The amount of wasted taxpayer money, deception of our own citizens, and unnecessary death and destabilization we’ve caused around the world is truly stunning. As a nation, we are on a militaristic precipice from which it is not clear we are capable of turning back. Sadly, the author’s prescient predictions seem all too true now ~15 years out of publication.

Loved it. Was sad to see it end. Glad there is 2 more to hear from Chalmers Johnson

The truth of a sad one

It's a book well worth listening to, but the narrator really needs to slow down why on earth one should read that fast is beyond me .It feels like he can t wait to finish the thing.

Necessary corrective to "official" view

While somewhat dated and not as insightful as Noam Chomsky this is an important book.
