The Violence of Organized Forgetting : Thinking is frighteningly true about the state of the world today . It is not an easy read, but a profitable one, because it answers a lot of questions about why thing are like they are. And things are not 'good'.

The media no longer sees things as they are, but have a vested interest in imposing a view that protects the 'system'

I enjoyed this book , even though at times I had to put it down because of the frustration of knowing what is happening, and the inability to change it.

Henry A Giroux is a Brilliant Author. I look forward to reading more of his work.

This is an incredibly insightful, brilliant book that provides a clear and damning overview and assessment of America today, and although published in 2014, presaged Trump's presidency, and its calamitous impact on democracy. It may be as consequential a book as Alexis de Tocqueville's Democracy in America. Should be compulsory reading in every north-american high school and university.

Excellent analysis! I liked it even better than "Disposable Futures"! I recommend "The Violence of Organized Forgetting" without reservation.
