A great book, a brilliant book! The one description (and this in no way detracts from Mr. Greenwald's outstanding book and writing) I'm uncertain about is that "two-tier system" - - I really believe that the legal system is used by the super-criminals who rule at the top to keep their competition in check, the lower level of criminals, while jailing any and all reformers, be it Eugene Debs, John Kiriakou, and so forth.

An examination of America's central principle of the Rule of Law established by the founding fathers and its steady erosion since Watergate. Goes to the heart of this country's present problems.
