    A Prudent Man

    This book, like his others, remind me of some research I was doing on the Korean War, of which I am a veteran. In order to compare the deaths in less than three years in Korea and those in ten years in South Vietnam, I came across a statement by Arthur Scleshinger whereby he claimed that John F. Kennedy, the Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces of the U.S. did not want to send troops into Vietnam. I almost fell off of my chair as the president is the only one who can send U.S. troops to fight anywhere. Also, the Kennedy brothers were instrumental in the murder of the leaders of South Vietnam. So, this famed Harvard professor, on Joe Kennedy's payroll, was teaching his students this rubbish. Furthermore, the Encyclopedia Brittanic is stll printing this as fact. Approximately an average of 20,000 proud American were killed each year in the Korean War vs. 10,000 in Vietnam and less than 900 in Iraq.

    Thomas E. Woods does it again.

    Here is a book that takes the approach of the "Politically Incorrect Guide" series. Thomas E. Woods endeavours once again to inform the public about blatant lies that have been taken as common knowledge through public schooling and it's politically correct approach. Is there an agenda behind hiding the truth from people? is the truth a hard pill to swallow? Perhaps, but knowing who we are rather than wishing is the only way to find ways to truly improve ourselves as Americans.

    This book is more urgent today than ever, as the smug misconceptions that we think are the strength of the American Republic are taken for granted and blamed for the hard times we will face in the coming years. The Great Depression, as well as the imminent depression we are about to experience seems to invariably be blamed on capitalism and the free market. Thomas Woods, in the tradition of Austrian economists will inform you why it isn't so, why the blame needs to be placed on the actual culprit. It was true in the thirties, and it is true today.

    The author has a talent of making the book an entertaining read while being informative and sobering. His other books are also great reads.
