About The Paradox of our National Security Complex; How Secrecy and Security Diminish Our Liberty and Threaten Our Democratic Republic:
Most Americans live very hectic lives and have little time to devote to reading lengthy tomes on a single subject, never mind researching these matters. Here, in a single volume, Richard Otto presents a series of compelling essays on Vietnam, Watergate and the assassinations of the 1960s. The Paradox of our National Security Complex examines the consequences of our militaristic and corporatist policies since World War II on our liberty, our security, and our democracy.


About the Author:
Richard Otto worked as an attorney at law in Connecticut for fifteen years. He began his career as an associate attorney at Yules and Yules before opening his own office which specialised in probate, criminal defence and child protection law. Otto received two awards for his legal representation of children in the Superior Courts for Juvenile Matters. 
Otto’s interest in politics and history began at a young age when he would observe his relatives debating the issues of the time. He dedicates much of his spare time to reading and researching past and current policies and events, often publishing articles in local newspapers.
Now a case manager at a drug court, Otto lives in the beautiful state of Maine with his wife and daughter.
