5.0 out of 5 stars Nothing but the sad truth..., 9 Feb. 2012

This review is from: World As It IS (Hardcover)
Fantastic book but for all the wrong reasons. It lays down the truth about everything from politicians, the media, war, etc. It is not too complex either, it just lays out the world as it is (as the title says!). The thing that is so hard to swallow is that the truth about this world we live in is so glaringly obvious and simple, yet most people are completely blind to it as a result of the mainstream media system which feeds us garbage 24/7. In my opinion people are also too distracted to do anything about it, which is mentioned in this book. I have already read into and researched many issues about what goes on today and I have formed my own decision without the help of politicians or the media. This book just solidifies my world view. Each chapter discusses small issues in each area i.e. politics, war, etc and are at most 5 or 6 pages. I have read Fisk's Great War for Civilisation and it was a lot harder to read than this, mainly because it spans so much time. This book is very relevent to today and current events.

Would recommend to anyone who has a hint of doubt about the integrity of our governments, our media and our way of life in general. BUT BE WARNED: it's great for the wrong reasons, the future is a scary thought.

5.0 out of 5 stars A real eye opener., 19 Dec. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a fantastic book that is both enlightening and disturbing at the same time. You get some of the information from behind what you see on the news, and it really make you look at your world view anew. Worth a read for anyone who wants to know more of whats really going on.

5.0 out of 5 stars even in its best state, is but a necessary evil, 1 Dec. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: World As It IS (Hardcover)
The unadulterated truth of America's version of Capitalism and endemic financial corruption from the pen of a brave and authoritative freelance journalist. Read and learn what destiny has in store for those among us who are either ignorant, afraid, or just don't care about their future. Truth of reality must be sought out and not spoon fed by a compliant media carted with vested interests. "Government, even in its best state, is but a necessary evil; in its worst state, an intolerable one." Thomas Paine

5.0 out of 5 stars Broadreaching Assessment of Western Political Culture, 14 Mar. 2013

This book has amazing range, looking as it does at political structures and how these structures define our daily lives. Not always easy reading it has strong criticisms of human behaviour and where we as a species are headed. Change starts with people however and it is possible to see how people can take back power into their daily lives and change the direction we are headed.
