This personal account of the experience of an ordinary person-thrust into the public arena by circumstances beyond his control-exposes political conflict at the community level as the basis of self-government. What the author learned as he grew into the role of public citizen is vital to the restoration of our republic.
Set in 1990s Puget Sound between Seattle and the Canadian border, Blind Spots is the story of how industrial-backed terrorism-using racial and religious divisions-undermined elections and stifled societal debate. How a handful of people responded to this travesty and reclaimed the public realm, illustrates the effectiveness of the public health model in containing the disease of aggression. As they came to understand the New Right strategy of fear, hate and revenge, they also realized the power of moral sanction.
As more Americans awake to the disaster that currently befalls our republic, they will need reassurance and guidance in setting things right. Blind Spots will give them the courage to exercise their duties.
