Item Details

More than ever, America needs fresh ideas--and bold solutions. Now, Ralph Nader--perhaps our last great civic idealist--offers seventeen ideas to rescue our country from corruption, complacency, and corporate domination. America is in crisis. After enduring two decade-long wars and a devastating financial meltdown, We the People have been abandoned by the leaders we elected to serve our interests. Now, in response to our desperate times, pioneering reformer Ralph Nader offers a new program of seventeen ambitious but common-sense solutions to our chronic economic and social problems. Among them: Reforming the tax system Making our communities more self-reliant Reclaiming science and technology for the people Protecting the family Getting corporations off welfare Creating national charters for corporations Reducing our bloated military budget Organizing congressional watchdog groups Enlisting the enlightened super-rich Nader offers a stark assessment of our shared straits, but his solutions constitute an eye-opening plan to save America--before it's too late.

"Enlisting the enlightened super-rich" Yeah, riiiiiigggghhhtt, Ralph! The problem with Nader, and too, too many other activistis and pseudo-activists and quasi-activists, is that they never, ever take it to the next level --- what is the source of the problem? The super-rich, who have rigged everything to their favor and in their favor, from their ostensible conservation movement, whereby not only do they own the vast majority of the land, but now the public pays them for their owndership as they are declared public parks (until they decide to sell them off), or set-asides for conservation purposes, and so on. Who owns everything? Which individuals, or super-rich families, are the cause and primary source of the neverending problems, who owns the media, and on and on and on? Negative rating for a useless book. The "pseudo-environmentalist" answer to climate change: cap-and-trade, more free money for Wall Street and the oil companies, from a plan that originated in 1983 with the Reagan administration, naturally!
