GUEST: Normon Solomon, author of “Made Love, Got War,” Founder and Executive Director of the Institue for Public Accuracy

From the hysteria over the Sputnik launching to the current quagmire in Iraq, activist Norman Solomon has lived through decades of America’s perpetual warfare state. Lessons learned from a lifetime of resisting are reflected upon through Solomon’s newest book, “Made Love, Got War: Close Encounters with America’s Warfare State.” Part autobiography, part social commentary, the book follows various social movements from civil rights, to anti-Vietnam War and anti-nuclear armament causes. “Made Love, Got War,” is harrowingly shadowed by an ever-present and never ignored possibility of nuclear armageddon. As the warfare state is equipped with the weapons of mass annihilation, Solomon mulls through the shortcomings and failures of movements past, while retaining a conviction that a better tomorrow can still be constructed. Congresswoman Lynn Woolsey, in praise of Solomon’s book “Made Love, Got War,” said that, “We should all heed his call to activism, or our children’s future could be in doubt.” Norman Solomon is the author of twelve books including War Made Easy: How Presidents and Pundits Keep Spinning Us to Death. He is also a nationally syndicated columnist and Executive Director of the Institute for Public Accuracy
