Review: Freedom Next Time by John Pilger | Books | The Guardian
A very important book, but oddly balanced. Do you know what happens when US government needs a British Island for a military base?
Why, with hour news coverage and hundreds of channels, have these people been invisible for so long? Ha ha, take that Chagossians. The section on India felt misplaced and shallow, whilst the section on South Africa could really be expanded into its own book.
Trained as a historian, I am skeptical about the evidence of a “Golden Age” when the Fourth Estate “spoke truth to power” and made the lives of our leaders uncomfortable. He is not going to dig up some one sappy story to make you feel better about the world you live in, about your government and what it does in your name.
Interesting and important read, if a little dated now. The poor 2, or so Chagossians were effectively banished from their own little tropical island paradise by the British so they could hand the island over to the United States military. Gives you a glimpse into a world that the mainstream media would rather you ignored.

I suppose it’d have been much more powerful had I read this in HS assuming it had been released at that time –but that hardly means it isn’t important!
Aug 24, Elizabeth rated it it was amazing. Published May 15th by Nation Books first published June 5th When you’re conscripted into the army and then ordered with no reason given to prevent pregnant Palestinian women from crossing a check point who then loose their babies, it has got to leave a scar on your conscious.
And it kind of gives you a sense of hopelessness about the state of affairs in the world. Freerom seems to rule and rape anything of true value and purpose and replaces it with greed and violence. Bagian ketiga, tentang kota-kota India yang mau meledak karena terlalu banyak orang, dan di terlalu banyak itu, sebagian besar miskin.
Typical of Pilger’s excellent delivery. Well, aku agak gak begitu paham karena konteksnya yang baru bagiku. The author tries to encourage the reader to see the silver lining in it all by seeing how people have summoned courage to forgive and to fight back in peaceful ways.
