Item description for Custom Maid for New World Disorder by Peter G. de Krassel...
We the Maids, For the Maids, By the Maids - we are the maids that clean up and pay for America's geopolitical mess.
A political manifesto for our difficult and troubled times, Custom Maid Spin for New World Disorder is a trenchant analysis of the political, social and moral ills that beset the United States. This is a book written for anyone with a stake in the future of America.
Filled with witty personal anecdotes drawn from his experiences as a lawyer, a businessman and a political activist, de Krassel argues that America desperately needs to reform. He takes particular aim at the country's career politicians, sensationalist media and jingoistic culture. And he suggests ways in which America can put its house in order.
The first chapter, The Hypocrisy of Fake Morality with Real Orgasms, examines how American journalists have increasingly focused on frivolous stories about the sex lives of public figures rather than the real issues affecting the country. In the years leading up to the 9/11 attacks, for example, more time was spent by the American media chasing the Monica Lewinsky affair than tackling difficult topics like the rise of Islamic extremism abroad or the long overdue need for campaign finance reform.
Further chapters cover racism and bigotry, religion, America's great opportunity in the new millennium, the breakdown of family structures, spin and disinformation. The book concludes with an exhortation to a return to the principles of the Founding Fathers.
A new millennium offers a unique opportunity for change. It is a chance for Americans to retake control of their political system and reassess their values in an increasingly religious, stressed-out, debt-laden, consumerist society.
Peter de Krassel was born in England of a Russian father and Palestinian Jewish mother. He has lived all over the world, including Switzerland, Israel and the United States. Currently he lives in Hong Kong. He has a unique perspective on world events both from the influences of the places he's lived in and the people he has met, as well as from his varied career.

Reviews - What do customers think about Custom Maid for New World Disorder?
A reader from Ridgefield, CT Sep 27, 2004
Most of the time I feel as if the media is simply aiding government in its agenda to spread mass hypnosis. Mr. de krassel's insightful, intelligent book is a wake-up call to think for ourselves, see the truth behind the spin and take action in whatever ways we feel called. It is a must read for anyone who is willing to take responsibility for what we all have contributed to creating and the courage to believe in new possibilities.

Peter de Krassel's book is a beam of light through a pitch-black series of essays on our present time in history. His viewpoint serves as an indicator that illuminates understanding for how we arrived into our contemporary drama and provides impetus for embracing recognition of a global community. Includes opportunity for amazement and many good chuckles, as well as a view of Hong Kong that we ordinarily are not privy to experience from our receiving end of the media's voice. Inspiring and challenging with a delicious sense of connectedness served with humor and sensitivity beyond outrage.
