In Dark Ages America, the pundit Morris Berman argues that the nation has entered a dangerous phase in its historical development from which there is no return.As the corporate-consumerist juggernaut that now defines the nation rolls on, the very factors that once propelled America to greatness—extreme individualism, territorial and economic expansion, and the pursuit of material wealth—are, paradoxically, the nails in our collective coffin. Within a few decades, Berman argues, the United States will be marginalized on the world stage, its hegemony replaced by China or the European Union. With the United States just one terrorist attack away from a police state, Berman's book is a controversial and illuminating look at our current society and its ills.

Sorry, Publishers Weekly critic, but as harsh as Mr. Berman's pronouncements are, they are all nevertheless quite accurate. Militant ignorance is the dominant theme of a zombie-like sheeple society full of unknown knowns and known unknowns. Anyone who still doesn't grasp just how hollowed-out the American economy is (the top five banks account for over 70% of the GDP, with the upper 15% of the populace accounting for the vast bulk of that 70% consumption figure bandied about so glibly) is truly lost and forever clueless!

Each of Berman's books more compelling than the last. This #2 in trilogy is terrific. RECOMMENDED!
