The book Crossing the Rubicon, The Decline of the American Empire at the End of the Age of Oil arrived on Friday and I am slowly making my way through it. It is by Michael C. Ruppert, an admirable soul.
This book is brutal as to what is going on, has gone on, as to the corruption, and we knew it and learned it during Iran-Contra and then sort of forgot.
Pick it up. Read ten pages a day. Weep. Admire those who expose, those who speak.
