Douglas Lucas“You Can Get Fooled Again: Powerful Sociopaths and the People Who Love Them” with Douglas Lucas

On this edition of Demanufacturing Consent: Guillermo is joined by freelance writer and journalist, Douglas Lucas. We discuss Lucas’s latest article, “Portrait of a failed president: Inside the art of George W. Bush.” We examine how presidential libraries, like the latest in Dallas, Texas, function as self-aggrandizing propaganda tools, and explore what Bush’s recent “art exhibit” may reveal about the former sociopath-in-chief.

Also on the program, we touch on the drug war raging “south of the border,” the next generation of sociopathic cartel leaders, Stratfor’s cozy relationship with law enforcement (especially in Texas), and the latest on the Barrett Brown case.
