I felt changed by reading this book. It is a collection of articles, that contains quite a bit of repetitions - as each article is written to give a casual reader a broader understanding by itself. Apart from that, the contents are of thje greatest importance for anybody wanting to get an overview of our modern political times. The author speaks very clearly and harsh against lying policies, and the suppression of truth, justice and (lack of) political meaning. Some might feel stressed by the authors forthrightness and unequivocal expressions. But they hold true, also in retrospect! Notwithstanding the light of new informations.

Reading Paul Craig Roberts book, this reviewer was looking to find some background on social changes in America from the 1950's onwards to maybe explain the non-investigation of 9/11 and the new Police/Warfare State.

The book shows that America is now a Lawless State but doesn't look at its "Counter Cultural Revolution". Does a 50 year countercultural assault on traditional America, Christianity, U.S. history and the Constitution have some relevance to the present situation or not? Were the Counterculturalists just enabling the Police/Warfare State or did they think they were building a better world?

The author doesn't ask the question but at least he highlights 9/11 as the catalyst in bringing on the P/W State, with the article format unfortunately only blurring the issue. Maybe he could have emphasized the following points:

1) The agreement among specialists that the third tower (WTC7) came down in a controlled demolition (owner Larry Silverstein was actually recorded giving an instruction to "pull it")

2) Preparation for demolition takes several weeks so Silverstein had prior knowledge of 9/11.

3) The US government/ judiciary/ Congress/ CIA/ FBI and news media all refusing to treat Silverstein as a suspect.

In reality, Silverstein isn't only a suspect, he's also a personal friend of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, so perhaps the author could have followed the trail:

This is the same Netanyahu,who held a celebration to commemorate the Irgun bombing of the King David Hotel (headquarters of the British Mandate Government of Palestine) in which Zionist activists dressed as Arabs placed milk churns filled with explosives against the main columns of the building.

I am a huge PCR follower and because I read his articles all the time and listen to his interviews as much as possible I tended not to find anything new in this book. People new to him will find it super informative. But for me, there was nothing new and much of it was just rehashed opinion and fact gathering his followers have heard him say giving interviews to Greg Hunter, Alex Jones and the like. If you are new to him though buy it, if not then proceed with caution.
