4.0 out of 5 stars it's important everyone reads this book, 25 Mar 2004
This review is from: Stupid White Men: ...and Other Sorry Excuses for the State of the Nation! (Paperback)
Stupid White Men exposes the truth about American politics. It reveals the facts that the supposed free media is instructed to leave out. George Bush cheated to gain presidency and is being led by evil corporate giants whose motives are to gain more money at all costs. (why do you think America was the only country not to sign the Kyoto agreement on less toxic factory emmissions).
I notice a lot of people have slagged the book off as being too much of a rant and one-sided. I disagree. If ranting has meant more sales then that's a good thing. If more people know the truth behind western politics then maybe the masses will come together to stop it. Too many people are ignorant, having been brainwashed by the propaganda of the media. It is not one-sided either. Moore tells the truth, that's all - just because it's shocking doesn't make it one-sided.
It isn't brilliantly written though and I thought the humour wasn't funny - it oft-times detracted from the point he was trying to make too. The book was also a bit too fragmented. If you want to read a similar book but better written and by a well respected ex journalist read 'The New Rulers of the World' by John Pilger. Now that really is depressing, going into the details of how the US and Britain have caused death and famine on the scale of millions in Indonesia and Iraq in order to get their hands of their natural resources. And they have the gall to talk about post 9/11 terror.
