Nah, really, I do get it -- the pleasure is in seeing articulated so clearly the problems in the world that you have always sensed but not been able to put your finger on.
Well, when I say "pleasure," I really mean "something I'm not being tested on or forced to read for class." Actually, I picked it up because it ties into another class I'm taking on 20th century US intervention and foreign policy.
