Submitter: I guess this book was purchased in the interest of “balance” for our academic library. In 1981, apparently, it was okay to pretend that whackadoodle conspiracy theories represented an alternative point of view. I’m glad the predictions of enslavement to a One World Government have yet to come true, and that the godless commies have not prevailed, despite the “brickbats coming thick and heavy” to John Wayne, of all people. John Wayne, “far removed from Hollywood’s typical subversion and perversion as you can get!” The nerve!
Holly: I get the whole balance thing, in general, but if that’s really a priority in your library, you have to make an effort to keep the materials more current on all sides. Conspiracy theorists are like, “old news!” and in an academic library, this isn’t helping any college kid do research on attitudes and beliefs of the 21st century.
