KC Blogger 'Stolen Dream' Book Review



Because the written word is still (somewhat important) Check a thoughtful local analysis of an important book amid the frustration of the underlying political epoch.

Checkit:

America: Who Stole the Dream?

Money line . . .

Electing Donald Trump may seem like a drastic measure, but you can see that people who feel like they’re being shafted might be willing to do something drastic when the status quo seems lined up against them and unwilling to change . . .

When I read books about what’s wrong with the system I always want to hear the authors’ solutions. Unfortunately, this is where the book fails. It suggests steps the government can take. After 200 pages of documenting how government, as Ronald Reagan used to say, is the problem, the authors seem to believe the government will have a “road to Damascus” experience.

You decide . . .

Not sure what the point of his blog is, other than to post brief reviews/critiques on other's books/movies/etc.

Short format doesn't lend itself to deep discussions.

Wow Tony, you can read?

After reading this blog I had assumed it was trial and error.

The point of this post is I was surprised that more than twenty years ago writers were discussing the issues that led voters to elect Trump and the Democratic party, which was in the White House, not only did nothing but made things worse.

If you will read some of my earlier posts, I have written longer posts. It was suggested that I shorten them. I have. Perhaps I'll reconsider.
