new history book to read.

heard this on NPR the other day. Looks like a good book to pick up read.
Bomb Power: The Modern Presidency and the National Security State (Hardcover)

The comment on that page by john hamilton is right up the alley with what james kunstler writes in "the long emergency":

"...The future does not bode well for the kind of system we have now - infinite growth of economic output, increased spewing of greenhouse gases, increased attempts at futile empire building, increased degradation of the environment, and infinite growth of population. All of these things take place in concert, in a synergy of dysfunction for the planet. It won't last."

2014 comments:  Hmmmf.  I don't think I ever finished that book, need to check it out again.  Kunstler:  I occasionaly visit his blog, if and when i remember....
