This book describes the corporatist nature of the libertarian movement and its influence on the Republican Party. It attempts to refute the false belief by almost everyone that American capitalism is freedom loving and shows that capitalism is not and cannot be democratic. It also says that the Republican Party and the conservative and libertarian movements are trying to obliterate the revolutionary changes wrought by the New Deal by advancing a destructive "free market" ideology being pushed on the whole world through a globalist system of austerity for working people and deceptive propaganda aimed at consumers and ordinary citizens. It also discusses religion and the various challenges to fundamentalist belief by nonbelievers and secularists as well as aggressive American militarism and various social issues.
