Becoming China’s Bitch: And Nine More Catastrophes We Must Avoid Right Now by Peter D. Kiernan Â Â Â Â Â Â HC 106.84 .K56 2012
A Manifesto for the Radical Center
America is frozen. We have failed to face our nationâ€™s most crucial challengesâ€”and we are about to pay the price.
When it comes to solving our countryâ€™s problems, we have become utterly paralyzed: bipartisanship has lulled us into a deadlock, preventing us from taking action. Yet we can no longer ignore the inevitable catastrophes or hand them off to Washington to fixâ€”they must be addressed now, or we will suffer the long-term consequences.
InÂ New York Times Bestseller, Becoming Chinaâ€™s Bitch, Peter Kiernan presents an unflinching manifesto in which he explores five factors that have sustained our national paralysis, then uncovers the ten challenges that pose the greatest threat to the future of America. Presented from a fresh yet informative Centrist perspective, these ten impending catastrophes include our semiconscious dependency on China, our lack of a centrally coordinated intelligence effort, our downward-spiraling health-care system, and the continually expanding problem of illegal immigration. In a logical, personal, and persuasive voice, Kiernan offers radical yet common-sense solutions to these challengesâ€”solutions that every American must acknowledge and act upon before itâ€™s too late.
With provocative insight and analytical depth, Becoming Chinaâ€™s Bitch is the answer to securing our countryâ€™s immediate future and restoring our national soul.
