Just finished John Perkins’ Confessions of an Economic Hit Man, which describes and explains the great and profound Evil my country has become. It’s one of those books that pulls it all together, draws order out of chaos. I can see why it's a New York Times bestseller. For more about it, go here.
What I’d like to do now is apologize to the people of the world for what America has done, but the word “apologize” is so utterly, utterly puny. My country has done such great harm, for our own selfish, greedy, sodden purposes. I am deeply ashamed. In fact, I don’t even want to be an American anymore. I am declaring myself the first citizen of the country of The World. Any one want to become the second?
