"Remember when everything was looking up? When the government was running at a surplus, pollution was disappearing, peace was breaking out in the Middle East and Northern Ireland, and the Bridge to the Twenty-First Century was strung with high-speed Internet cable and paved with 401(k) gold?" "Well, so much for the future. Michael Moore, the award-winning provocateur behind Roger & Me and the bestseller Downsize This!, now returns to size up the new century - and that big, ugly special-interest group that's laying waste to the world as we know it: stupid white men. Whether he's calling for United Nations action to overthrow The Bush Family Junta, calling on African-Americans to place Whites Only signs over the entrances of unfriendly businesses, or praying that Jesse Helms will get kissed by a man, Stupid White Men is Mike's Manifesto on Malfeasance and Mediocrity."--BOOK JACKET.… (plus d'informations)

some of this is outdated and childish (in his joking style) but i am glad to have read this now, before this upcoming election. it was such a great reminder both of how truly radically terrible donald trump has been (i mean, i in no way need this reminder as i have one every single day; but with specifics about actual governing that you could forget in all the chaos and fascism and general danger and stupidity.) as well as a needed reminder of how truly bad george bush was. he has looked so much better since donald trump was elected that i'd nearly forgotten all the awful stuff he did and was responsible for. also, moore doesn't spare bill clinton, and has a chapter in here about him, too.

in particular, i'd never really paid close attention to the language around george bush becoming president back when it happened, and i was in my early twenties. sure, i voted for gore, and i thought it was a travesty what happened. but the language of george bush stealing the election felt like so much political speech always does - extreme and as if they weren't using the words they should be using. but holy shit! this election was totally and completely stolen! he really truly didn't win, and not just because gore won the popular vote. gore won florida! and seeing now, this much later, how much this mattered. wow. (i mean, i think moore would actually argue that in some sense it didn't matter that much at all, because clinton/gore weren't that much different than bush/cheney, but they were in some important ways that would be making a difference now.) but for it to have been so blatant and for it to still have happened this way, wow. stunning.

this is where the book is strong. when he talks politics, specifically bush and the election.

he is on less solid ground in other areas. for example i'm not sure his framework of racism as a mental illness is helpful or useful. other areas where his jokes feel childish or like he's reaching. and a lot of the numbers are very outdated and so don't land as powerfully as they would have when he wrote this. still, the political stuff was worth reading, especially right now, even though it's almost 20 years later.

"...the three richest men in America own more personal assets than the combined assets owned by the entire populations of the sixty poorest countries." ( )

Somewhat underwhelming, not his best book. ( )
  Zungwini | May 18, 2019 |
A bit over-the-top in some ways, but impressive in others, like:
P. 258-259 offering to personally help Palestinians non-violently resist Israeli government oppression. ( )

Michael Moore and I agree on a basic issue; it's us white men that has buggered up the world. Personally I can't wait until non-white men or women take over. Moore makes some suggestions about how we could bring this around quicker, including hiring only black people from now on, to killing whitey.

Moore make some good points and treats us to a few chuckles but one seems to grow weary of Moore rather quickly. ( )

Moore has his own theories on why things are as they are. Deploying something like the "Six Degrees of Separation" theory, Moore insists that all society's ills are linked back to -- you guessed it -- stupid white men. Moore argues that it's greedy CEOs, politicians and those who support them who are responsible for what he sees to be American social decay. Perhaps he plays the blame game a bit too much, but Moore's thesis is both resonant and humorous.

A sensational book.... If the state of the union grows any more dismal, Moore may just become the funniest man in America.

Alternately snarly, outraged and very funny.
