When We Go Upon the Sea

Re Robert Zaller’s review of Lee Blessing’s When We Go Upon the Sea, at Theatre Exile—

What is disgraceful and terminally disheartening about our brain-damaged 43rd president was his structural dishonesty in touting a totally false oil-igarchic Iraq idealism while blindly refusing to support the world’s admittedly feeble efforts to help establish international law.

If you want to understand these endemic American confusions, I recommend Empire of Illusion, by Chris Hedges (Nation Books, 2009).
