2.0 out of 5 stars Poorly argued and poorly structured a lot of invective, 15 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: America's Deadliest Export (Kindle Edition)
The author holds his readers in contempt stating from the outset that he needs to preach to them constantly of the evils of capitalism lest they forget. This preaching and the invective against those with whom he disagrees undermines his arguments and any serious consideration of the many issues he raises.

Penpool holds his - few - readers in contempt by failing to provide any argument or evidence in his insult-filled comment.

Don't forget everyone else is preaching to you without warning you!!! Let's hear your thoughts about the rest of the book's contents. Having read some of William Blum's books I really can't see that they would be "Poorly argued and poorly structured".

So, according to you, the vehemence with which he advances his arguments undermines... those same arguments? So how would he go about convincing you? By saying nothing about them?
