"Let us not be decieved..."

Cornel West again: page 22 - Let us not be deceived: the great dramatic battle of the twenty-first century is the dismantling of empire and the deepening of democracy. This is as much or more a colossal fight over visions and ideas as a catastrophic struggle over profits and missiles...We live in a propitious yet perilous moment in which it has become fashionable to celebrate the benefits of imperial rule and acceptiable to condone the decline of democratic governance...

End slice:

Okay, I am going to limit my posts from the book in favor of recommending you buy it. It's about 15 bucks or so. Go ahead, support the author.
