    Back to Our Future PDF ↠ Back toeBook ¸ back download, future ebok, Back to mobile, Back to Our Future PDFEPUBIf you can seriously think of a Nightmare on Elm Street as embodying an anti government ethos or that GI Joe cartoons were made for the main reason of making militarism attractive you might like this book For the rest of us the author relentlessly stretches particular events that happened in the 80s to fit his preconceived progressive ideasHe claims that the 80s demonized the 60s but really only uses family ties as an example and skips mostly over how the 80s were a reaction to the hedonism of the 70s not 60s Some things he really is reaching and tries to use a small number of examples to prove something He goes heavily into Red Dawn but he seems to entirely forge

    Back to Our Future PDF ↠ Back toeBook ¸ back download, future ebok, Back to mobile, Back to Our Future PDFEPUBI neglected to notice the little figure on the cover in danger of being crushed by the rolling Rubik’s Cube Wait the author’s arguing that the ‘80s were bad Yes decidedly so Much of the book is too strident and the fusillade of pop culture references can be awkward but as an ‘80s kid turned ‘80s history buff I found Sirota’s Unified Theory of Reaganism well worth contemplating A lot of that ‘80s silliness was peddling very large lies or obscuring truths Just think if the book was written now after the most noxious ‘80s icon of all has been elevated to our highest office

    Back to Our Future PDF ↠ Back toeBook ¸ back download, future ebok, Back to mobile, Back to Our Future PDFEPUBI’m a big fan of David Sirota and when I saw “Back to Our Future How the 1980s Explain the World We Live in Now – Our Culture Our Politics Our Everything” I practically suealed OK I did sueal I have been saying this for years and when someone as smart as Sirota writes a whole book about it it feels pretty vindicatingI’m just about Sirota’s age maybe a couple of years older I remember the 80s and as the kid of a poor single mother for me and others like me the decade was not the fabulous happy time it has been mythologized into It seemed every time we turned on the TV some rich white man in Washington was talking shit about “welfare ueens” like we were

    Back to Our Future PDF ↠ Back toeBook ¸ back download, future ebok, Back to mobile, Back to Our Future PDFEPUBIf anyone ever needed evidence that Gen Xers are shallow and lazy Sirota has provided it I like a tour through my childhood as much as the next guy but Sirota has found a way to blame all the ills and isms of the 21st century on the culture of the eighties It's an intriguing premise but it only holds water if you ignore the economic technological and demographic shifts of the last forty years then pretend that nobody knew how to do propaganda and mass media manipulation before 1980 It also helps to ignore the many ways in which popular culture lags current events reflecting what everybody is worried about rather than imposing an agenda on others There's an interesting book

    Back to Our Future PDF ↠ Back toeBook ¸ back download, future ebok, Back to mobile, Back to Our Future PDFEPUBI was assigned this book for a bullshit class Generally it surprised me that a book written so badly could ever be published David Sirota tries too hard when he writes Everything is a jumble of words he shotgunned from a thesaurus or at least that's how his writing comes off to any educated reader I really didn't care about the arguments from the book and I don't think the author cared much either seeing how thin the examples are stretched to fit his already formulated rants The book is a work in elitist douche baggery wrapped in 80's nostalgia and was probably published because of a lost bet
