Inequality is ballooning in the land of equal opportunity. This is inevitable due to the false belief held by almost everyone: that American capitalism is democratic and freedom loving. This book aims to shed some light on that misconception and take some air out of the balloon.
From the early 20th century, fascism has infected the whole world, and the government of the United States has often supported it as an imagined bulwark against communism. Wherever economic, political, and religious power have been combined and paired with military and police power, totalitarian fascism has been the outcome. More and more, the United States itself has become increasingly fascist - especially when the Republican Party controls the government.
This book reveals the corporatist nature of the libertarian movement and the effects of libertarian sentiment on the Republican Party. These folks currently dominate the American political scene, and the Republican Party is subverting political democracy through the use of a system of economic tyranny disguised as "democratic capitalism." In this book Burrell describes the use of military and police power to create a one-world economic monolith (globalism) that is oblivious of the rights and needs of working people and consumers across the world. He warns of the near death of democracy and describes the destructive role the libertarian idea has played in trying to obliterate the revolutionary changes wrought by the New Deal that made the United States the leading social democratic state in the world.
