ENJOY THE DECLINE (2013) AARON CLAREY’S WITTY AND INSIGHTFUL GUIDE TO MAKING MERRY AMID THE RUINS

Enjoy the DeclineAaron Clarey is an economist and the author of the irreverent  Captain Capitalism site. His book Enjoy the Decline: Accepting and Living with the Death of the United States is the perfect guide for coping with the masochistic self- destruction of the premier Western Democracy.

Unlike morose examinations of this topic by Mark Steyn and others Clarey greets the twilight of individual liberties and the diminishing of economic expectations with a swashbuckling smile and a cocktail in one hand. His guide is meant partly tongue-in- cheek but he manages to convey some very practical advice – especially for the younger population who are facing a far bleaker future than previous generations.

I think Ambrose Bierce would have appreciated this book and its odd way of combining cynicism with humor and nihilism with optimism. If you want to see how Clarey manages such an odd balance you can buy the book at http://www.amazon.com/Enjoy-Decline-Accepting-Living-United/dp/1480284769/
