Part memoir of the author's early life--including his experience as a New York City cop and a US Border Patrol agent before he became a college professor--and part polemical discussions of a host of diverse topics, from aging, religion, and war to teaching and higher learning, corporate capitalism and consumerism, technology and media, this book challenges the beliefs and behavior of the American way as it recounts the unusual, “out of whack,” life and mind of an iconoclastic “Un-American, All-American” baby-boomer.
*In the United States you can't be too poor, because you can't be too wealthy. The French still resist an economic system that authorizes and even favors the wealth of a few through the sacrifice of many. In the United States, we're sacrificing our financial security and peace of mind to people of infinitely increasing wealth.
