Do not look for an honest critique here
on 15 April 2014
I'm only 8% in but already I find myself questioning the conclusions that the author is drawing from the little evidence that is presented. Furthermore the one sided presentation of the Washington consensus which fails to mention the original author, gives supposed quotes without reference and talk of secret doctrines is (dis)information I would expect to find in a David icke text.
Having a quick read on Wikipedia reveals some important reference regarding the formation of neoliberalism that has so far not been presented here in this book. I'm no fan of the two party celebrity politic, not a supporter of profit over the concerns of people but I had hoped that this might be a more honest appraisal of the situation rather than just a book preaching to the choir. Many of us know that our current situation is wrong and intolerable but an honest look at how we got to this point would have been greatly appreciated
