Editor’s Note: As much as the U.S. government has touted its love of democracy, the affection often has been conditional, based not on the will of a nation’s population but on the elected leader’s acceptance of American economic and political dictates.

No place has that been more true than in Haiti where American-favored dictators like the Duvaliers were long tolerated while popularly chosen leaders, such as Jean-Bertrand Aristide, found American officials siding with anti-democratic thugs, as David Swanson notes regarding the 2004 coup:

It’s a great day in America when heralds of hate, specifically Glenn Beck and Michelle Malkin, are booted from their Amazon best seller slots on day one of the publication of progressive leader David Swanson’s breakthrough tome, Daybreak, now at Number One on Amazon’s non-fiction best seller list.

Swanson is consistently less about the problem and more about the solution.

Daybreak, Swanson’s long-awaited political tome, delves deeply into his political and strategic expertise. It’s a delectable and teachable feast. No wonder it booted Glenn Beck from his first place position. Insightful trumps spiteful any day, just as reflective trumps invective. Swanson motivates through explanation and clarification. He’s a teacher, not a screecher. A journey through Daybreak is an educational awakening, and an alert to the misdeeds of those we’ve elected. It’s a clarification of why these deeds are wrong, why they must be challenged, and how they can be changed. It’s an invitation to “we the citizens” to right them once and for all, and an informative guide to get it done.
