Revolutionary France of 1789 was the world's first post-Christian society. Leftism is an ersatz religion, and France became the world's first Leftist nation. Leftism is faux Christianity. America is today becoming a post-Christian society under a similar imitation of Christianity. One of the truisms of such a society is that one can now hide behind the pretense of "openness." Shame, which would have previously kept certain things hidden, is now the only thing of which we are ashamed. One can be completely open about all matters sexual, for frankness about everything is now valued. Yet, such cultures only develop new ways of being hidden. One hides in plain sight in modern America. One goes on television, the Internet, and to publishing houses to "tell all," using the facade of "boldness" and "frankness," to remain hidden. "Openness" is a cover, and it is a cover for emptiness. We no longer know who, where, or what we are. We have lost ourselves.

"In the cozy den of the large but modest house in Omaha where he has lived since he started on his first billion, Warren Buffett watched the horrors of Hurricane Katrina unfold on television in early September 2005. . . . On the fourth day, he beheld in disbelief the paralysis of local, state, and federal authorities unable to commence basic operations of rescue and sustenance, not just in New Orleans, but in towns and villages all along the Gulf Coast. . . He knew exactly what he had to do. . ." So begins the vivid fictional account by political activist and bestselling author Ralph Nader that answers the question, "What if?" What if a cadre of superrich individuals tried to become a driving force in America to organize and institutionalize the interests of the citizens of this troubled nation? What if some of America's most powerful individuals decided it was time to fix our government and return the power to the people? What if they focused their power on unionizing Wal-Mart? What if a national political party were formed with the sole purpose of advancing clean elections? What if these seventeen superrich individuals decided to galvanize a movement for alternative forms of energy that will effectively clean up the environment? What if together they took on corporate goliaths and Congress to provide the necessities of life and advance the solutions so long left on the shelf by an avaricious oligarchy? What could happen? This extraordinary story, written by the author who knows the most about citizen action, returns us to the literature of American social movements—to Edward Bellamy, to Upton Sinclair, to John Steinbeck, to Stephen Crane—reminding us in the process that changing the body politic of America starts with imagination.

Cities are frequently viewed as passive participants to state and national efforts to solve the toughest urban problems. But the evidence suggests otherwise. Cities are actively devising innovative policy solutions and they have the potential to do even more. In this volume, the authors examine current threats to communities across the U.S. and the globe. They draw on first-hand experience with, and accounts of, the crises already precipitated by climate change, population shifts, and economic inequality. This volume is distinguished, however, by its central objective of traveling beyond a description of problems and a discussion of their serious implications. Each of the thirteen chapters frame specific recommendations and guidance on the range of core capacities and interventions that 21st Century cities would be prudent to consider in mapping their immediate and future responses to these critical problems. How Cities Will Save the World brings together authors with frontline experience in the fields of city redevelopment, urban infrastructure, healthcare, planning, immigration, historic preservation, and local government administration. They not only offer their ground level view of threats caused by climate change, population shifts, and economic inequality, but they provide solution-driven narratives identifying promising innovations to help cities tackle this century’s greatest adversities.

American democracy is seemingly in retreat. Voting rates are at an all time low, citizens are disillusioned, and inequality continues to soar. But there is also a belief that change is possible. Calling All Radicals argues that we can reclaim our democracy in the old fashioned way — through grassroots organizing. Gabriel Thompson draws upon his own experience of working within local communities to demonstrate its immediate impact. Some examples: When a brother and sister were being evicted from their home of 73 years, the community responded by staging a protest in front of the landlord's home — gaining media attention and forcing the owner to allow them to stay. With children in Central Brooklyn suffering from lead poisoning, Thompson designed a campaign that trained inner-city high school students to test neighborhood homes and found that 1 in 3 were dangerous — forcing NYC officials to act by pushing through citywide legislation that held landlords responsible for implementing more proactive steps to fix hazards. Calling All Radicals argues that everyone is capable of community organizing. It explains the key tactics of organizing, leadership development, conducting research, and working effectively with the media.

To the up and coming generations, we've reached a crisis point in our nation's history. The last this severe was the Civil War when brother fought brother. Our Constitution has been brutally assault-ed by forces seen and unseen. The 1st, 4th, and 5th amendment rights only apply to those who control the levers of power and not those they target and seek to destroy.This book serves as a history lesson as our past is a guide to the present, and then to the future. In world history, there has never been a socialist country where promises made were promises kept. The picture painted is socialism leads to fairness or "More Hope and More Change." The reality is it never has been that way and only leaves the masses destitute, empowering a few to control all.It's time for all to put your social media aside and pay attention to what is going on in this country as your freedoms are at stake. My one wish is that, hopefully, this book opens your eyes to what is happening to our country and the foundation of our existence, The Constitution of the United States of America with its Bill of Rights.This book is Americana The Good, Bad, and Ugly, presented in a way that only someone who is a bit out of the ordinary can.It was Abraham Lincoln, in a speech in 1856, who said, "Actions speak louder than words." Today, 24/7 hate is all around us only because of Donald Trump's anti-globalist, anti-group think, and anti-Socialist Democracy/Communist actions the opponents to our Constitution seek to use to control our lives.With socialism and the march to globalism and oneness, our freedom to speak out is in danger. Unfortunately, the greatest concentration of the least informed is the young people in our colleges. They have had a lifetime of indoctrination-both educationally and through the mainstream media. The fantasy of socialism sells over the reality of the numbers. Regardless of whatever you believe in, you must always look at the numbers that go behind it. If the numbers aren't true and there isn't a counter-argument to what you are looking at, chances are you are being sold a bill of goods.With governmental control of our day to day life, we lose our individuality and freedom that goes with it. Nothing is more apparent to those paying attention that deep-rooted forces in our government caused a constitutional crisis in trying to control an election, and then via a coup d'état, unseat a duly elected President. Phony investigations were started by those who committed crimes they thought would never be discovered when Hillary Clinton was elected President. The question remains whether future generations seek to be controlled by those who seek power, wealth, and control our day to day activities by eliminating our freedom of choice, or if we still have the right of self-determination.The common thread among socialists and deep state operatives today is Saul Alinsky. The tactics espoused in his 1971 book Rules for Radicals were the template for Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama, and George Soros, all from the Chicago school of Saul Alinsky, as is the old crop of socialists Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders. Now, there is a whole slew of modern-day socialists including, but not limited to, Kamala Harris, Cory Booker, Pete Buttigieg, Beto O'Rourke, and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (aka AOC), along with a bunch of new congressional members.With the current segment of socialists/globalists in our government, within the mainstream media, and teachers in our schools, it's difficult to escape the effect this has had on the indoctrination of a false narrative on individuals who socialists/globalists regard as "useful idiots." To the extent these anti-constitutional principles have infected our society, this is the first of two books on that disease.This book will highlight Alinsky's 13 rules of radical tactics most effective Socialists/Globalists/Marxists/Deep State use in organizing group thought....
