Breaking the Strangehold of Corporate Rule, Big Media, and the Religious Right
Fixing America by John Buchanan
Book DescriptionAn award-winning investigative reporter provides a clear, honest diagnosis of the country's chronic diseases--corporate rule, big media, and the religious right--in this damning analysis. Exposing the darker side of capitalism, this critique raises alarms about the security of democracy in today's society, including the rise of the corporate state, the insidious role of professional lobbyists, the emergence of religion and theocracy as a right-wing political tactic, the failure of the mass media, and the sinister presence of an Orwellian neo-fascism. Drawing on historic voices that include John Adams, Mahatma Gandhi, Thomas Jefferson, Robert F. Kennedy, James Madison, Thomas Paine, and Mark Twain, this treatise articulates a fresh vision for 21st-century America that deserves the attention of every patriot.
