Hightower is at it again, this time taking aim at those bedrock institutions that drive the economic and cultural life of the country. As the man himself says, "I am an agitator, and an agitator is the center post in a washing machine that gets the dirt out". In this lucid, viciously funny, downright refreshing book, Hightower argues that government, the media, and corporate conglomerates have put us smack-dab in the middle of the mess we're in today.
Leaving almost no contemporary issue unscathed, he lays bare the dirty politics behind the new global economy, exposing how these three institutions have undermined basic American values like justice, fairness, tolerance, and opportunity; how they've steamrolled the common people, ignoring their needs; how they've created an oppressive and oppressing machine that keeps the downtrodden downtrodden. Hightower doesn't gripe and whine -- he offers commonsense solutions to controversial issues.
