Morris Berman: Why America Failed
Morris Berman: Why America Failed

Quote:Cultural historian Morris Berman had to go to 13 publishers before he found one who would publish his latest book. Most recognized that it was brilliant but wouldn't touch it because it was too hot to handle. That's because Morris, the ultimate iconoclast dares to speak verboten truths that even progressives and radicals have a hard time facing up to.

He says that while it may be true that the "doctrinal institutions" as Chomsky describes them may have a strong influence in propagandizing the public, it's not so much that the media is pulling the wool over people's eyes, the root of the problem is that "their eyes are the wool". Join us for an uncomfortable trip into the American psyche.

Some of Morris Berman's latest books are: The Re-enchantment of the World, A Question of Values, Dark Ages America, The Twilight of American Culture, and his newest, Why America Failed: The Roots of Imperial Decline.

"There are three sorts of conspiracy: by the people who complain, by the people who write, by the people who take action. There is nothing to fear from the first group, the two others are more dangerous; but the police have to be part of all three,"

Joseph Fouche
