Examining some skeletons in Americas closet,
This review is from: Stupid White Men: ...and Other Sorry Excuses for the State of the Nation (Hardcover)
Michael Moore seems to be a fine patriot, in the finest sense of the word. Not following the blind opinion that "my country is the best, my countrymen are the best", he turns the spotlight on his own people and is heavily critical of American politics, politicians, culture, but in a highly amusing and irreverant fashion. The chapters on the election of President Dubya are fascinating reading. Similarly, his opinions on the so-called "recycling" trend, are thought-provoking and intelligent. Moore is a fine patriot because with his unique style of questioning and challenging of the authorities, he is seeking to improve the society in which he lives. Moore cares enough to take unpopular stands against big business, and throughout the book he encourages us to look beyond the obvious when following the news, and to take an active part in society rather than letting it pass us by.
