We Do Our Part Free download ¿ 7 “We Do Our Part” was the slogan of Franklin Delano Roosevelt’s National Recovery Administration and it captured the can do spirit that allowed America to survive the Great Depression and win World War II Over the course of a sixty year career as a Washington DC journalist and historian Peters the founder of the Washington Monthly has witnessed drastic changes firsthand Ranging from the history of lobbying to the explosion of high end fashion and travel reporting this surprising book explains how we can consolidate the gains we have made while recapturing t. I bought into the basic argument that we ve evolved from the Roosevelt culture of service to the Trump culture of money Where Peters started losing me was the last third of the book probably because it s where I have the most direct experience when he started talking about specific issues like abortion gun rights and especially public education he thinks teachers are the problem and that charter schools are the solution all without the benefit of any serious data or facts just opinions and his opinions not others Then he really lost me on page 178 But talented people have not stopped coming into government entirely There continue to be idealist men and women devoted to public service One example is Timothy Geithner Really The man almost single handedly responsible along with Paulson and Bernanke for the crash of 2008 with the Lehman bankruptcy The man who brought the Clinton era back into the White House The man who after leaving the Treasury became the president and managing director of Warburg Pincus a private euity firm In other words exactly the kind of person out to maximize their pocketbook rather than serving I stopped reading right there outraged Sorry Mr Peters your basic idea may be right but your support of it needs work

Review We Do Our Part

We Do Our Part Free download ¿ 7 He generous spirit we have lost We Do Our Part is entertaining insightful and engaging Spanning decades of politics and culture Peters compares the flood of talented original thinkers who flowed into the nation’s capital to join FDR’s administration with the tide of self serving government staffers who left to exploit their opportunities on Wall Street and as lobbyists from the 1970s to today During the same period the economic divide between rich and poor grew as we shifted from a culture of generosity to one of personal aggrandizement With the wisdom of a. This book by Charles Peters publisher emeritus of The Washington Monthly is both a memoir and critiue of American culture and politics from the Truman administration to the present I find most of Peters observations spot on Peters lays the blame for the disintegration of USA s New Deal We Do Our Part unity suarely on the shoulders of his generation and my g g g g generation While my parents generation of which Peters is a member was noted for its conformity it also started the culture on the road to a meritocracy based on prestige of where one attends school and knowledge which leads to class snobbery based on perceived aesthetic tastes and Thorstein Veblen s conspicuous consumption From my viewpoint the greatest irony is my g g g g generation the baby boomer blathered about how we rejected our parents materialism yet also spent hours discussing how much our latest pair of Cerwin Vega stereo speakers cost And as I have observed the Hell No We Won t Go college boys were secretly OK with letting those hillbillies go get shot I m glad I read this book though I learned very little I did not already know It is interesting since it is written from the prospective of one whose publication helped shape Democratic thought

    [We Do Our Part] Download à Charles Peters I was fascinated by Peters' take on the creeping greed taking over Washington and the country He dates it back to the end of FDR's administration the development of the lobbying class and later the glamour that the Kennedy's exuded He of course deals with much but this point stood out to me and resonated All that stuff about service dedication to country and hope for America wasn't so bad either
