In Fixed Ideas Joan Didion describes how, since September 11, 2001, there has been a determined effort by the administration to promote an imperial America--a "New Unilateralism"--and how, in many parts of America, there is now a "disconnect" between the government and citizens. nbsp; "[Americans] recognized even then [immediately after 9/11], with flames still visible in lower Manhattan, that the words 'bipartisanship' and 'national unity' had come to mean acquiescence to the administration's preexisting agenda--for example the imperative for further tax cuts, the necessity for Arctic drilling, the systematic elimination of regulatory and union protections, even the funding for the missile shield." nbsp; Frank Rich in his preface notes: "The reassuring point of the fixed ideas was to suppress other ideas that might prompt questions or fears about either the logic or hidden political agendas of those conducting what CNN branded as 'America's New War.'" nbsp; He adds, "This White House is famously secretive and on-message, but its skills go beyond that. It knows the power of narrative, especially a single narrative with clear-cut heroes and evildoers, and it knows how to drown out any distracting subplots before they undermine the main story." nbsp; Book and cover design by Milton Glaser, Inc.… (mere)

Typical Didion style. Complex ideas and relationships between ideas with perfect prose. ( )

I think 9/11 made me political in a way nothing could possibly have done before. It's part being a New Yorker, part having worked in finance at the time of the attacks, and many other things. It clicked for me, more than presidential elections or other smaller events. I think it's true of a lot of people. Didion was already political, quite obviously, but this recount of the changes in our country following the terrorist attacks takes her to a new level. Brilliantly put, and a bit scary if you read it with any sort of distance. ( )
