What would Carl Oglesby say about all the candidates as they stumble towards the Presidential Election of 2016?
Carl Oglesby’s most famous book, a favorite of mine, reveals a twilight language view of the world and should be read by all students of political history. It is The Yankee and Cowboy War: Conspiracies from Dallas to Watergate and Beyond (1976).
I’ve discovered this book, which is extremely difficult to find in a print edition (they go for over $300 via used book vendors), is available as a free download, here. You have no excuse not to read it.
I asked Carl’s son, Caleb Oglesby, about publicly posting this link, as I respect author’s copyrights. This is what Caleb wrote to me today, via his Facebook page: “I think he would be happy to see it out there in the world. I know someone approached my sister about putting this book online, and we as a family gave our blessings.”
Of course, I miss what Carl Oglesby (July 30, 1935 – September 13, 2011) would have had to say about the specific alignments of the candidates for president. “What would Carl say?” does come to mind.
It’s a circus out there, but someone in this candidate pool, no doubt, is going to continue the Yankee or Cowboy traditions
