On Naomi Wolf's The End of America (from an Amazon reviewer):

Mrs. Wolf then lists the calculus that all dictators employ to aggregate power: "Invoke an external and internal threat; develop the paramilitary force; create a secret prison system; surveil ordinary citizens; arbitrarily detain and released them; harass citizens' groups; target writers, entertainers, and other key individuals for dissenting; intimidate the press; recast dissent as "treason" and criticism as "espionage"; and eventually subvert the rule of law."
Giorgio Agamben's fficial%26client%3Dfirefox-a&sa=X&oi=print&ct=title">State of Exception is another good one, and, I must admit, is the first "Google book" that I have ever seen -- a book with many sections available, but not all. The scrolling function is also much better than that of a PDF.


(Giorgio Agamben)
No profanes - sacred
