Review of “America Dies When Based Upon Lies” by Mosswee M. Peach:

Upon selecting this book, I couldn’t help but notice the author’s playful pseudonym, reminiscent of ‘Must We Impeach.’ Initially, I wondered if this indicated a tongue-in-cheek approach hinting at potential political satire. Reality proved otherwise. As I delved into the pages, it became evident that this was not a professionally written op-ed but a manifesto.

In the introduction, the author shares their strong beliefs about a figure they feel is unsuitable for their role as Commander in Chief without explicitly naming the individual. As the report progresses, Peach’s sentiments towards Donald Trump and his supporters become apparent with his incessant insults toward them. Published in 2020 during Donald Trump’s reelection campaign, Peach’s book criticizes the former president, whom he calls “the Resident.” The author interweaves religious references, including bible verses, alongside derogatory terms, and statements about Trump, such as “He (Trump) seems to be an empty vessel into which someone poured evil magic…” Peach resorts to calling the former president names: “Bozo, super narcissist, clown, charlatan, Svengali.”

As the author revisits the topic of COVID-19 multiple times, he/she expresses discontent and frustration with the GOP. Although Anthony Fauci was a critical key figure at the time, he is not mentioned.
Regrettably, “America Dies When Based Upon Lies” by Mosswee M. Peach lacks substance, resembling more of a gossip-laden diatribe than a constructive political critique. Peach’s overreliance on qualifiers like “possibly,” “seemingly,” “apparently,” and others suggests opinions rather than substantiated claims. The book’s credibility is further diminished by its absence of references and the use of words written in all caps to convey the author’s anger. Additionally, the text suffers from formatting issues, such as strange numbers frequently appearing between words nonsensically. Distracting punctuation choices detract from the overall experience as well.

The book would greatly benefit from editing to enhance readability and coherence. The multitude of issues I encountered led to a one-star rating from me. In conclusion, while "America Dies When Based Upon Lies" offers a distinct perspective, its appeal may be restricted to a narrow audience.
