Troublesome Country is a forceful statement of what is right about America -- as well as a history of where we've gone wrong. Our principles are the best the world has ever known: freedom, democracy, equality, justice, and independence. Yet failure to follow this creed leads us to great wrongs -- from the genocide of the Indians, slavery, and discrimination, to rule by corporations, the privatization of our currency, endless undeclared wars for empire, and the erosion of rights under the surveillance state. With an array of fascinating, little-known details, the author shows how each failure comes from betraying our ideals, and calls for us to finally live up to them.

    I enjoyed the interview, particularly because he has distilled all the Amurrikkan exceptionalism propaganda into a few tenets of a “creed” that we all could actually agree with. I am going to start inserting references to the Creed into all my conversations – “Well, that action certainly violates the Creed” or “According to the Creed, you can’t do that.” It will make people laugh when I say it, but it might just make them think after I take two seconds to tell them what the Creed is. I have found it is always good to insert humor when you are delivering bad news to people. Oh, wait, you already KNOW THAT!!!! (Maybe I learned it from you!!) xoxoxo

    good for you. I agree. So far our “creed” has just been words.
