Growing up in America means there are a few things we all undoubtedly know, the first of which is that America is the greatest country on earth. Then, we are the richest with the greatest military might the world has ever seen. The things we thought we knew, Robert Kirkconnell takes apart with facts and figures akin to a surgeon’s scalpel. American Heart of Darkness takes a look at the cold, hard history of the United States in order to determine how she and her inhabitants ended up on the path to destruction. They say those who don’t know history are doomed to repeat it, and Kirkconnell unearths the dirty secrets and the true tales of the most famous and infamous events in our history.
What makes American Heart of Darkness so much more than the ravings of a disillusioned patriot is the precisely documented and astutely presented evidence from the CIA’s dubious role in introducing drugs to American soil to the JFK assassination to racism and the impact the Civil War had on society even at this current date. Starting with his own personal experiences with America’s dark heart in Vietnam, Robert Kirkconnell tackles some of the most important events in American history and presents them through the lens of the truth. By the time you have finished this book, neither blinkers nor rose-colored glasses will continue to be an option. You will see that the events that lead to the current economic and social problems we face are not simply a product of poor governing or bad luck, but rather a carefully orchestrated plan to enrich a small few at the expense of the country and her citizens.
