America has been run as a corporate regime for several years -- a merger of big business and government that makes profits more important than human rights and erodes the democratic tradition. Costly wars abroad, a national debt that grows exponentially year after year, and the inability to deliver stable work and essential social services are undermining the legitimacy of the regime -- opening the door to a new period of regime change. Today, new grass roots progressive movements are mobilizing, becoming a catalyst for change. In Hidden Power, author Charles Derber shows how these movements can transform the political landscape, breaking the Democratic party out of its corporate shell and moving it toward a new unifying vision of how to create real democracy in a world run by big money.
