Just finished Noam Chomsky's newest indictment of Big Brother, Hegemony or Survival. It's a real good read, and it's not that long. Basically his point is that America's pretty hypocritical. If we do something, let's say bomb a building that we suspect is full of terrorists in another country, we say it's justified and okay. But if the same country bombed some building in Chicago and say that they suspected it was filled with terrorists, we'd probably declare war right away.
He explains it much better than I do. You should pull your self away from the computer and read it. What's that, you don't read books. No problem here's how you get the audiobook cd, so your lazy ass doesn't have to turn any pages.
