And Greg Palast has the guts to. You can’t really call his article on Ronald Reagan an obituary, precisely. It’s far too bitter. And realistic.
But as I wrote in another forum:
I’m sorry for those close to him and for those who loved him, but I can’t exactly say with good conscience that we lost a great man.
Who knows how history will remember him. I think if you go out far enough into the future, he’ll be remembered as being deeply connected to the process of American global hegemony, neoliberalism, and imperialism. And I can’t see how this will be regarded as a good thing.
But Palast pulls no punches. Again, someone had to say it.
