    PDF/EPUB John Nichols í The S Word ePUB Î The S PDF \ í word mobile, The S ebok, The S Word MOBIIn many ways this book—published in 2011 in the midst of Obama's first term—is a product of its time You can feel Nichols' irritation with his fellow journalists and their smearing of socialism most especially conservative journalists like Glenn Beck and Mick Huckabee but also his liberal colleagues In answer Nichols seeks to retrieve an American tradition of socialism arguing that the ideological commitments of socialism influenced some of the most American Americans you can imagine—most especially Thomas Paine Walt Whitman Abraham Lincoln the city of Milwaukee and Martin Luther King JrDoes he succeed? It's hard to say Most valuable here is the counter narrative he proposes to histories that tend to smooth out and domesticate the radical figures in our nation's past The Republican Party of Lincoln is a far cry from the Republican Party of Newt Gingrich; Thomas's Paine's Common Sense has little in common with Glenn Beck's C

    PDF/EPUB John Nichols í The S Word ePUB Î The S PDF \ í word mobile, The S ebok, The S Word MOBII won't venture to say this is the best book that I've ever read but it served a dutiful purpose If you can get through the detailed writing which is important you must read this book Many Americans rail against Big Brother and the excess of government They cry fowl against Socialism while they scream for politicians to keep their hands off their Medicare For too long the far right has dominated the political discourse in this county They have turned the S word into something scary and have even scared people into thinking they should run from the label Liberal The author does a good job of walking the reader through American history while providing ample evidence of socialism in our politics from Thomas Paine to the birth of the Republican Party yes you read that rig
