Shortly after we became drunk. A pool cue smashed my teeth.
I woke up with a whore that was insane, and she gave me money. There was the smell of suicide on this scorching hot day. This book is largely devoid of plot. The long paragraphs of description may become a toil for some. At those times my eyes often ached with the long, beautiful labor. Yet, I kept taking and taking from this book and it was like the sea.
The collection of essays by WWII veteran turned peace activist and history professor, Howard Zinn, in Howard Zinn On War is indispensable to any person seeking to understand the vulgar reality of war. Zinn applies this sense of historical integrity to the subject of war.
Men do not enjoy debauchery of stag dos, study finds
The disgracing of nationally admired myths to their truthful representation is always painful, enlightening, and fiercely resisted. Zinn takes the highly unpopular stance that there is no such thing as a just war. Zinn attacks the justification of atrocities committed under the guise of patriotic duty and self-deception.
We can ease our conscience that way, but only by lying to ourselves.

Because, when you bomb a city from the air, you know, absolutely know, that innocent people will die. Millions of people killed in various instances for the sake of making points vain as crude machismo. This is the inevitable outcome in all wars. I would like to go into every point discussed in this book. These reflections would be too lengthy for simple review.
Zinn maintained a 45 year friendship with Noam Chomsky who referred to him as one of the great historian and activists of a generation. Zinn has a lifetime career as a fighter for civil rights and anti-war through non-violent protest and civil disobedience.
His life will serve as an example for people everywhere in the struggle for a more peaceful world. In short, their aim is to turn the US into a Christian theocracy and thereby enforce a Christian global rule. Hedges gives an in depth look into the inner working of the Christian Right. He attends conversion seminars, conventions, and interviews current and past members. His main argument is that the figureheads of the Christian Right are purposely distorting Christianity to serve their grab for raw power and institutionalize a Christo-fascist state.
The real importance of this book is that Hedges addresses the idea of tolerance. How tolerant should a free society be towards intolerance?

The question is paradoxical. On one hand if we fully tolerate groups with a fascist agenda we risk having them ending our open society. Yet if we are intolerant and oppress their freedom of speech, then we will have ultimately lost. But when a fascist group, be it the Christian Right or any leftist group, is actively trying to instill intolerance it will be our duty to never become passively tolerant. That is the reason I respect this book, it is a call for every anti-fascist person to realize there are fascist movements in this country and to stand up and denounce them for what they are, American Fascists.
A powerfully unapologetic book. It completely destroyed the Hollywood and Media fantasy notion of what war is. The stories by these Vietnam veterans are raw and make no attempt to come off as politically correct. They talk about their experiences in their own word without regard to being politically correct. The testimonies follow a chronological order that start from the beginning of the war, all the way to leaving Vietnam. What I admired about this book was the brutal honesty. The soldiers speak about incompetent leaders, crazy soldiers, fear, courage, death, and a lot of other things that is usually overshadowed by an overtly patriotic message.
This is one of those books people of this generation need so badly read. These voices from a not so distant past are trying to warn of us of the true nature of war. Some of the stories are enough to make you laugh out loud, such as the soldier who enlisted after a wild night of drinking then sobered up really fast. Other accounts by special forces who lived deep in enemy territory are grim and reveal the deep psychological scarring of what they did to survive and do their duty.

How do I rate a book like Neuromancer? Gibson was far ahead of his time, took an entire generation forward, blah blah blah, everything everyone else read on Wikipedia. Ok, so what about the book itself? To be honest it was tough to get into and I never fully did , but once I got into the groove it became a decent techno surrealist adventure. But then… the issues started popping up. The techno jargon, which was neat in the beginning, murdered the flow like speed bumps on a freeway. The unfolding plot was mega jerky.
At times I just gave up trying to figure what the setting was, let alone the plot. I felt like I was exploring the matrix, seeing an incredible cyberspace landscape, and stretching the fabric of my imagination. This was definitely one of those books that has opened my third eye. The story is a bit generic gotta steal this to kill that. The characters were interesting, yet lacked in any real depth.
The annoying confusion, jargon choppiness, and thin characters kept this book from being a 5 star read. There were some parts that were so convoluted that I literally fell asleep.
Other parts were a straight up grind to get through. Still, this is one tripped out read. My brain is still sizzling from flying around in the matrix. I give this book 3 and half Keanu Reeves heads. Home About.
