Very fascinating to have illuminated the intermingled workings of Washington and those greedy bastards on Wall Street. I thoroughly enjoyed this, even though it made my blood boil at times.It shows how Obama was subtly corralled by some in his cabinet, so they could save their banking friends from full blown popular disgrace....
No. He did a fine job with this...
I think "Wall Street, Washington, and the Education of a President" is very apropos.
Absolutely! I already have!
Russo's ability to depict the humorous aspects of the ordinary lives of these small town academicians.
A matter-of-fact reading that underscores and enhances the wry, witty, prose of Russo.
Absolutely. It is a classic that everyone should read (or listen to). I'm glad I finally did.
Of course, Lord of the Flies and 1984, both of which deal with society and power. And how power inevitably manipulates the (usually largely dimmer-witted) followers in society, to the deliberate benefit of those in power.
Boxer. He represents the simpleminded but industrious masses which the authorities utilize to sustain power for themselves.
Power corrupts, and absolute power corrupts absolutely.
Another classic I'd never gotten around to reading. I thoroughly enjoyed it.
Depicts well the genesis of the inevitable power struggles that have to occur in any manner of a developing civilization.
George Carlin's brilliant mind, his unique comic associative perspective and ability to eloquently relate to the audience, make him a pleasure to listen to. It was enjoyable to re-hear some of his classic works and, of course, I relished the ones I hadn't heard before.
Yes. It's light entertainment with George's comic brilliance.
I finally got to listen to one of the classics I'd always wanted to read. It was time well spent.
It certainly makes one wonder about the motivations and methods of those in power, in any society. I'll take democracy over totalitarianism any day.
Can't change a classic.
Narration was appropriate. British accent makes it euphonious.
Probably not. Too dated...
Story was drawn out and the dialog was... not really enough to be called dialog.
I couldn't wait for it to end...
