Someone had to say it

And Greg Palast has the guts to. You can’t really call his article on Ronald Reagan an obituary, precisely. It’s far too bitter. And realistic.

But as I wrote in another forum:

I’m sorry for those close to him and for those who loved him, but I can’t exactly say with good conscience that we lost a great man.

Who knows how history will remember him. I think if you go out far enough into the future, he’ll be remembered as being deeply connected to the process of American global hegemony, neoliberalism, and imperialism. And I can’t see how this will be regarded as a good thing.

But Palast pulls no punches. Again, someone had to say it.
