The nice theory behind free speech is that, weighing the value of what another has to say, one can sharpen one's own ideas. Judging from the dull thud of the two reactionary reviewers to this audio book, it's highly doubtful they have actually downloaded it and listened to it. They make no point coming from the content itself, and in fact they make no point other than to question this country's leadership is of itself an act of treason and wrongness. (Beaucoups de brown shirts for the obedient ones, I say.) If we are forced to listen to a simpleton in the White House stammer and gush, we all should force ourselves to find intellectual antidote, for our own mental health, sure, but also for this democracy in which we live. Imperial Ambitions contains ideas that right wing ideologues should think through, and consider, and test in deliberation hid away from their fellow dittoheads. Then, if you come out thinking the same way as you went in, you can rest assured, refreshingly smug, that our national thinking is better led by a C- student, frat-rat, draft-dodging business failure with an intemporate demeanor, the common sense God gave wet napkins, and incredible family connections from a family headed by a full-time employee of the Saudi royal family. Which I guess makes our military, mired in sand of what used to be a mean neighbor to the House of Faad, sort of like your basic Brinks security patrol with wheels spinning on soggy lawn. This is what happens when you don't recognize Imperial Ambitions.
