What’s The Matter With America

Follow this link to Bill Moyers’ interview of Andrew J. Bacevich.

The description of this interview on the Moyers’ web site is as follows:

Is an imperial presidency destroying what America stands for? Bill Moyers sits down with history and international relations expert and former US Army Colonel Andrew J. Bacevich who identifies three major problems facing our democracy: the crises of economy, government and militarism, and calls for a redefinition of the American way of life.

Do not bother asking yourself what is the matter with Kansas. We had better start asking ourselves what is the matter with America.

The change that Bacevich says we need is unlikely to occur until we can ask this question.

I came across this interview because of the amount of discussion that it engendered on the Web.  It is well worth listening to.
