The Great Derangement

The Great Derangement, A Terrifying True Story of War, Politics, and Religion by Matt Taibbi published in 2008. Reporter for Rolling Stone, Taibbi has written an insider’s version of Evangelical Christianity and the 9-11 Truthers conspiracy theorists. Not related to one another except by coincidence.

“You don’t elect politicians to commit crimes; you elect politicians to make your crimes legal. That is the whole purpose of the racket of government. Another use of it would be a terrible investment, and the financial class in this country didn’t get to where it is by betting on the ability of a president whose lips move when he reads to blow up two Manhattan skyscrapers in broad daylight without getting caught.”
