Superdude57The Omnivore's Dilemma by Michael Pollan

A trendy book to read. I listened to the first two sections during a road trip. The last section didn’t interest me as much. I guess this book didn’t impact me too much, I’d been familiar with a lot of what was talked about. It made me a little skeptical of the latest study on “what’s good for you” and what not, of course there are special interest behind most of these studies. Also, corn is king and our government loves to subsidize it. It might not be the most healthy thing for to put in everything though. Interesting stuff. 4 months ago

Superdude57The Death of the Liberal Class by Chris Hedges

From Amazon:

For decades the liberal class was a defense against the worst excesses of power. But the pillars of the liberal class— the press, universities, the labor movement, the Democratic Party, and liberal religious institutions—have collapsed. In its absence, the poor, the working class, and even the middle class no longer have a champion.

In this searing polemic Chris Hedges indicts liberal institutions, including his former employer, the New York Times, who have distorted their basic beliefs in order to support unfettered capitalism, the national security state, globalization, and staggering income inequalities. Hedges argues that the death of the liberal class created a profound vacuum at the heart of American political life. And now speculators, war profiteers, and demagogues— from militias to the Tea Party—are filling the void. 17 months ago
