We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
While my stack of reading material always gets replenished every December, I probably won't wait to add this one to it. The summary notes a number of problems I saw from the inside as early as the late-'70s. Indeed, a couple of my professors recognised some of this half a decade earlier.
The basic attitude tends to pervade most Federal programs. It still is the basic problem with the transportation program, and we're paying dearly for it. It is telling that neither of the two movies on the same screen, nor their advocates, will even discuss this; but such is the premeditated self-deception of policy advocacy these days.
Nor is the attitude new one. I recently read an account of US intelligence in the Japanese community on the West Coast during the 1930s. If you're interested in reading it, look up Chapter 3 of Joe Rochefort's War, published by the Naval Institute Press a few years back.
