Book Review: Ginsberg, Benjamin. The American Lie: Government by the People and Other Political Fables. Boulder, CO: Paradigm Publishers, 2007.
This, part two in a series, will analyze Benjamin Ginsberg’s book The American Lie as a “cynical realist” take on the American political process, suggesting that even though it’s marginally useful to be “cynical,” we still must be against “bad pragmatism” and in favor of politics for the greater good even when confronted with the corrupt system we have today.
Next: either a history of bad pragmatism, or a diary on the latest bad pragmatist outrage. There WILL be a Bad Pragmatism pt. 3.
