About this Item

328 pages. Dimensions: 8.9in. x 6.0in. x 1.2in.Brutally audacious and satirical, A Mannequin for President is a fictionalized series of conversations, supported by a fascinating analysis of current and historical events. The result is an extraordinarily lucid portrayal of the Machiavellian intrigues of American politics, and the hows and whys of selecting a President. The pundits, including Michael Moore, are wrong. Presidents are tools of the system, not malevolent leaders. The Presidency is a facade behind which the real power resides. Forget elections! Except for minor differences, changing the President is an irrelevance. The American Dream is merely one delusion that reinforces this charade. American politics today is unchanged from a hundred years ago. Ask the people of the Philippines. At the turn of the 20th Century, they lost tens of thousands, in a futile war of liberation against American colonialism. They once deceived us with communism. Now terrorism is the new communism, cynically nurtured and exploited on Americas crusade for the worlds oil and natural resources; Manifest Destiny II. Then there is Globalization; a range of policies specifically designed to fail those in need, in order to create The New Jerusalem. Its the system, stupid! Not the man in the White House!

Brutally audacious and satirical, A Mannequin for President is a fictionalized series of conversations, supported by a fascinating analysis of current and historical events. The result is an extraordinarily lucid portrayal of the Machiavellian intrigues of American politics, and the how's and why's of 'selecting' a President. The pundits, including Michael Moore, are wrong. Presidents are tools of the system, not malevolent leaders. The Presidency is a facade behind which the real power resides. Forget elections! Except for minor differences, changing the President is an irrelevance. The American Dream is merely one delusion that reinforces this charade.American politics today is unchanged from a hundred years ago. Ask the people of the Philippines. At the turn of the 20th Century, they lost tens of thousands, in a futile war of liberation against American colonialism.They once deceived us with communism. Now terrorism is the new communism, cynically nurtured and exploited on America's crusade for the world's oil and natural resources; Manifest Destiny II. Then there is Globalization; a range of policies specifically designed to fail those in need, in order to create The New Jerusalem.It's the system, stupid! Not the man in the White House!
