READ The Common GoodI wanted to really like this book because it is such an important topic and because I agree that we have as a nation lost sight of the concept of a common weal or a common good But I only sort of liked it because while it is occasionally insightful it reads like a first Dr. Sebi Alkaline Diet: 2 in 1 book For Beginners! A Natural Approach Healthy Dieting Guide + Complete Cookbook Of… draft and in many placesescends from its lofty thesis to become a series of rants about things that the author Azulejos du Portugal doesn t like I m glad that I read it but I probably won t uote it much itsiagnosis is too general and its prescriptions are too amorphous for it to be much help in reinstilling an idea of the common goodAnd also Reich falls pretty hard into the nostalgia trap the belief that the country was united and understood the common good until about fifty years ago when things began to go Paris rouen drastically awry But most of the things that he highlights have been with us always though the amount of civic virtue and national unity was probably greater in the post World War II period than at any other time since the Revolution The narrative ofecline that the book implies though misreads a temporary spike in common goodness as evidence of a steady Emile Gallé : Maître de l'Art nouveau declineReich s basic argument is that Americans used to have a shared notion of civic virtue and the common good and now weon t any And he places the blame on three sets of villains 1 politicians who want to win at any cost 2 corporate leaders who want to make money at any cost and 3 politicians who conspire with corporate leaders to rig the economy at any cost Technically I guess this is only two sets of villains who combine in Marques et Signatures de la Porcelaine Française different ways to produce three things that haveestroyed public virtue But whateverI was impressed by the even handedness of Reich s treatment of the first group He oes not single out Republicans as the estroyers of civility and common values He blames them of course but he blames Roger Collet, tourneur et poète : Musée Magnelli, Musée de la céramique de Vallauris du 9 décembre 2011 au 7 mai 2012 democrats just as much He is especially hard on the 1 Democratic Senate thatefeated the Supreme Court nomination of Robert Bork through outright character assassination and 2 Barack Obama who legislated through executive order and weakened the public s trust in the separation of powers He is not nearly as even handed when talking about rich people and corporations who he argues have entirely abandoned the idea of public virtue in favor of making money and maximizing shareholder value And with these ill gotten gains they have flooded government with huge 1000 recettes faciles donations aimed at shifting the playing field so they can earn money And politicians of both parties have gone right along with themAnd all of this leadsirectly to Donald Trump who has been and I think that Reich is absolutely correct here systematically FAIENCES ET PORCELAINES destroying the norms and values at the heart of civic virtue and the common good But Trump as Reich presents him is a conseuence of theisappearance of public virtue and not its causeAll of this is packaged in a relatively short book with ten chapters most of which uickly abandon their primary arguments and become a kind of stream of consciousness narration of what Robert Reich thinks is wrong with the country I agree with a lot of what he says but I esperately wish that he had taken a little time and a revision or two to say it Reich s heart is in the right place In this book he takes a look at how norms have been eroded in the last couple years than that but especially since the election
