Synopsis

"Patriots Act" is a book about dissent in America and what patriotism really means. Is the term still meaningful, or has it simply become an exercise in bumper-sticker sentimentality? Here is a powerful collection of interviews with federal whistleblowers, social activists, soldiers, politicians, journalists, and even a former senior White House counter-terrorism advisor. Many of these individuals risked careers and vilification; others prison by virtue of their defiance on issues that deeply mattered to them. Our nation grew strong on the brawny shoulders of dissent. When those in power go after their critics by employing an arsenal of unsavory tactics, from demotions to firings to personal attacks in the press, we suffer as a nation. Those interviewed for "Patriots Act" have taken great risks to defend our freedoms and civil liberties. Despite their diverse backgrounds, life experiences, and even political orientation, their personal stories embody what is best about our national character. Dissent is our birthright in America. Anyone who tells you otherwise is wrong.

Among those who speak are: "New York Times" - Op-Ed Columnist Paul Krugman; legendary comedian Mort Sahl; FBI whistleblower Coleen Rowley; Lorenzo Dominguez, staff sergeant with California National Guard, who spoke to the media about poor training and equipment; former Senator Max Cleland, a triple-amputee Vietnam War veteran; former White House counter-terrorism expert Rand Beers, Daniel Ellsberg, and many others.
