Is American democracy in a death spiral? Why do Americans ignore political frauds and swallow pervasive lies from president after president, in campaign after campaign? In Attention Deficit Democracy, James Bovard diagnoses a national malady whose symptoms include a citizenry indifferent to facts and unable to judge when their rights are under attack. He exposes the frightening national reality of absolute presidential power and argues that our current myopia has dire consequences for America’s future. His is an authentic voice urging citizens to return to the principles of the Founding Fathers and to once again become the most important check against the abuse of power.
This book sheds light on how easily Americans forget what is happening in government due to politics & misdirection. So sad, but true. Very good book & is definitely worth the time!
God bless & Good Read!
