Democracy In Chains - riveting - and I only read the reviews

Of course the Author has her critics..and you should read them as well - you decide with everything we know right now....will make you pause....(I am not selling this book - only bringing the concept to you) I will bet, too, you already know this material..we are living thru it -

A DU member last night who started this discussion needs to be commended....and I understand that publishers sell books -

....snip....

“[A] vibrant intellectual history of the radical right . . .” – The Atlantic
 
“This sixty-year campaign to make libertarianism mainstream and eventually take the government itself is at the heart of Democracy in Chains. . . . If you’re worried about what all this means for America’s future, you should be” – NPR
 
“Riveting” – O, The Oprah Magazine (Top 20 Books to Read This Summer)

An explosive exposé of the right’s relentless campaign to eliminate unions, suppress voting, privatize public education, and change the Constitution.

Behind today’s headlines of billionaires taking over our government is a secretive political establishment with long, deep, and troubling roots. The capitalist radical right has been working not simply to change who rules, but to fundamentally alter the rules of democratic governance.

You decide what to make of all this.....be well all..and tks to very smart DU members....
