Stupid White Men

Stupid White Men
Michael Moore

"..and Other Sorry Excuses for the State of the Nation!".

The Awful Truth, which was a television show hosted by Mike Moore, is one of my favourite shows of all time. Therefore I was a sucker to buy this book, along with the gazillion other people who did.

It had its moments, sometimes it was even funny, it even told me a couple of things I didn't know, but it left me wanting something more, a more comprehensive look at power, glimmers of an alternative social vision.

If you are looking for an amusing book that points the finger at politicians etc, and don't want to look too deeply at changing things, especially yourself, then perhaps this book is for you.

If you want to learn about the world, and really understand what is going on, then read the Greg Palast book "The Best Democracy Money Can Buy" which is also easy to read, has it's humorous moments and covers how Bush stole the election in much more detail (Mike Moore even said "Read it!" on its cover).

If you really want to tackle the reigning ideology, read Chomsky.
