    Foolish American Thinking

    This book is pure propaganda. I was forced to read this by my WRIT 101 teacher, and I must say the ideas brought up by author David Boren are purely ridiculous. He expresses how horrible it would be if the US were not the world's leader or largest power. This is idiotic, because the world would not end if its leader was Japan or the UK.

    He even suggests that cynicism is dangerous and harmful to our country, which is downright garbage. Cynicism protects the people from being controlled and ruled over like a herd of mindless sheep. With that, he also suggests that congress is saint-like, answering a call to help people, when we know for a fact that congressmen have used the system to serve themselves for years. Of course, this is to be expected from a former politician.

    Still, the book is not useless, for there are still ideas that America could use. He has a valid point in saying that most Americans don't understand our government, and don't know that they can make a difference in our country, which is built on a democracy of people. This book was written during the reign of George W. Bush, however, and times have changed. I think today congress is run by industries more than ever before.

    This read is enlightening, but the opinion of David Boren should not be taken as a righteous call to action, because his mentality is surely warped and narrow.

    Non-partisan and he speaks from his past knowledge of the whole situation.

    America needs to heed Boren's non-partisan review of our world situation and be informed. Great book!

    Read, then pass to others!

    Thought-provoking, frightening and finally inspiring - this should be required reading in schools.
