I decided to buy a book yesterday, and I donít read many anymore, because the hundreds of articles that I evaluate every week pretty well maxes me out in that area. But I have heard such good things about The Twilight of the Elites, that I want to dig into it. Let me start with a review from my neighborhood bookstore, which also happened top be one of the moist famous bookstores in the world.

Excellent, thanks TomCat -

"Hayes argues that the publicís failure to trust the federal government, corporate America, and the media has led to a crisis of authority that threatens to engulf not just our politics but our day-to-day lives."

Christopher Hayes describes how the society we have come to inhabit Ė utterly forgiving at the top and relentlessly punitive at the bottom. I don't think any of us would dispute that statement.

I am very impressed with Christopher Hayes, have been listening to him for awhile. His book sounds of great interest. He mentioned about the Elites having to be embedded into what the rest of us experience. Well I do advocate that their children be signed up for the draft, with NO exceptions for any reason, except for severe disability. When their children are being shipped off to their various misadventures along with our children then they might not be so quick to sign on to wars. I think that would be a good place to start, and one that came to my mind quickly.

Thanks for the article Tom.

Hmm, frankly, I haven't seen anyone winning fame & fortune, or even a well Desrved Job since the Carter Era.. What passes for Merit in a Bu$h League world has No Merit for the Common Man/Woman/Other..;)
Reminds me of the song "Reeling in the Years".."That weekend trip to college didn't turn out like you planned..the things you pass for knowledge, I just can't understand.."

I just bought this book this morning. I watch Chris Hayes weekend program. I find myself nodding in agreement with Yvonne. There is now a tiny group of people who are in the circle that will see merit for their work.
