Recruiting for Revolutionary Reviews Brigade

from Asad Zaman

Ideological propaganda is a very important in all types of warfare — many armies now have large sub-units exclusively dedicated for this purpose. Those who read Amazon book reviews can easily find attempts by ideological devotees of neoclassical economics to block access to good literature on real world economics. We need to counteract this act of vandalism vigorously. Readers  of the RWER Blog  are requested to post reviews of good eye-opening books on Amazon, and also to solicit other readers to do the same, so as to create some volume of good reviews of books on real world economics.

    propoganda is involved in warfare, to say the least, though i wasnt aware of it originally. i listen sometimes to CSPAN radio in usa—half of it appears to be funded by the koch brothers. ISIS apparently has a good PR group. Amazon reviews follow a similar pattern.

    really, see the sophistication involved in the use of language. They deceive masses by hiding the tragedy, the writings contain. And after the great destruction, alternative space is used to close the voices of the distressed,dejected.

    Been writing reviews of heterodox books for years. See for example http://www.amazon.co.uk/review/RC1IS4CLESR74
