What would you do if you thought your government had been taken over by corporate interests, unaccountable officials, and extremists? We talk to several authors and thinkers who are taking on the current state of corruption.

Iraq war veteran Paul Reickhoff talks about "Chasing Ghosts," which details how his experience in Baghdad led him to conclude that America's mission in Iraq was deeply flawed. Michael Newman explains "Teaching Defiance," which argues that education and activism are inextricably linked. And campaign strategist and political operative David Sirota talks about "Hostile Takeover: How Big Money and Corruption Conquered Our Government," his guide to taking back Washington.

Plus, we speak with Kai Wright, whose recent Mother Jones article wonders why African Americans are "dying from preventable diseases in disturbing numbers," concluding that it often has to do with "the side effects of racism."
