Paradigm Shift is Floyd M. Orr’s magnum opus on the fall of the American Empire. The rot from within Wall Street, Washington, and The Consumer Culture has been apparent for a very long time. We have been on our way down the chute and out the door of sanity since The Sixties. This is that story told from a psychological analysis of our social and political structure. Just when we thought the rampage of the Bush/Cheney regime was about to wake Americans up from their deep slumber, The Second Civil War finds a new leader in a tiny, frozen town in Alaska. Things will never be the same again in American politics, or even society. Our peaceful culture of democracy, education, and compassion has been rudely interrupted. This is the story of The Palin Matrix, a Paradigm Shift in our world that most of us wish had never been unleashed by an overly ambitious, old politician with nothing to lose but his dignity. His unscrupulous sycophant has roared through our national dialogue like the gush of an aural enema! Yes, Floyd M. Orr has a sense of humor, also too. Paradigm Shift is a roller coaster ride through the psychology of a nation. The sudden shifts from descriptions of our predicament in Depression 2.0 to the irreverent sitcom parodies will leave you breathless. Through it all runs a theme for all those Americans who are so weary of the lies and obfuscations from the right wing cable news spin machine that they are as mad as hell and not going to take it anymore. Paradigm Shift is a left wing manifesto that attacks the right wing spin machine with an acidic splatter of hyperbole, outrageous humor, and a candid insight that must be experienced to be believed. We are all on this ship of fools together. It is past time to raise the sails, strap on our life jackets, and act like intelligent adults as we blow with the wind into The First Great Depression of the New Millennium.
