Christopher Leonard is a business reporter whose work has appeared in such publications as The Wall Street Journal and The Washington Post. He is the author of the bestselling new book Kochland: The Secret History of Koch Industries and Corporate Power in America.
Leonard explains how Charles Koch and his political network were able amass so much power and influence over American life. He also offers insights into Charles Koch’s “market based management” philosophy and how it enabled him to make so much money and also execute his long-term political strategies. Christopher Leonard also details the specific public policies that Charles Koch and his political network are advancing to transform the United States fully into a right-wing libertarian dystopia where “survival of the fittest” and unrestrained corporations rule without restriction over every aspect of public and private life.
Chauncey DeVega offers some advice for those Americans and others who are lost in the waves of Trump’s political effluence on how best to maintain their perspective and sanity.
Chauncey also shares some new research which shows how Trumpists and MAGAites possess low emotional IQ as well as a high level of attraction to chaos and destruction.
Resistance is not futile. It is also a personal calling and vocation. In that spirit Chauncey shares the inspiring story of freedom fighter Frances Crowe who passed away at the great age of 100-years-old.
