Naomi Wolf’s The End of America: Chapter 10: “Cast Criticism as ‘Espionage’ and Dissent as ‘Treason’” excerpt

”The Bush team is trying to move ‘Treason’ from its narrow Constitutional definition to a looser definition. The smear of treason has a long, ugly—and unfortunately time-tested—history of use by mid-twentieth-century dictators, as do the accusations of sabotage and espionage. The Bush administration has started to use the notion of treason in its Stalinist sense: as a weapon designed to harass critics and to frighten opposition leaders.” (pg 133)

Spiel redux: Everyone should buy 2 copies and give one away. Give one to someone you love or just think needs a wake up call. It’s been adding up over the years, I hadn’t realized, but Naomi Wolf lays it all out for us.

This book is a deal at Or you can be a really big hero and buy it from Chelsea Green, they could probably use the dough. GM
