of William Rivers Pitt's
latest book:
"The Greatest Sedition is Silence: Four Years
in America"

This passionate and controversial book is the work of one of America's most outspoken and talented new journalists.  William Rivers Pitt's caustic critique of the last four years of American government gives voice to the growing tide of dissent and outrage with America's leaders both inside the country and in the wider world.  Burning with anger, this incisive and readable book argues that, under George W. Bush, America makes a mockery of the values of liberty and truth that it purports to stand for, and that it is now more important than ever to speak out. Greg Palast: "This book is a call to arms for all progressive-minded Americans, and anyone who believes the US is charting a deadly course." Read review.

"Never in our history has a
mob of more feckless thugs occupied the executive branch of this government. One of the worst things to ever happen to this country was to allow these people to use the words, "freedom", "justice", "democracy", "patriotism". Because those good words become lies when they speak them." -- William Rivers Pitt

"A moment will come on January 20th, 2005. It will be cold in Washington D.C. A man who is not George W. Bush will raise his hand and swear and oath to preserve, protect and defend the United States of America. The words "So help me God" will be snatched by the wind and carried across seas and mountains to the furthest corners of the planet. When that happens, all of the Earth will be joined together in the deepest and most profound exhalation of relief. When that happens, George W. Bush will have become in his absence what he completely failed to be with his presence: A uniter."
