ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the book "Here and Now," by Herbert Lawrence Block. This book has the same attraction for a lot of people that a coffee cup has for cigarette ashes, the ideal place to dump any kind of decision. The book gives a picture of an Administration in which whatever the state of the defenses against possible foreign aggressors, the American Government has probably never been so firmly on guard against Americans.
