Despite all my difference with the author on ideological level nonetheless I believe that the author has done a great job in highlighting the suffering of common-man at the hands of imperialism, neo-liberalism, capitalism, and corporate-globalization. I believe that we all can agree that the life of a common-man is valuable and this is what the book is all about the worth and value of the life of a common-man. If you were to take something at the very least from this book then it should be, the need and importance of justice and the dire need to value the life of a common-man.
It shows thin line where democracy ends and hippocrasy begins. You can sense influence of Chomsky throught the book.
