On this edition of Carson's Corner, Bob continues his discussion on Paul Street's new book, "They Rule: The 1% VS. Democracy." Empirical evidence continues to show that those born in the bottom portion of the income ladder have just a 1% chance of reaching the top. In today's America, there is almost no such thing as a rags to riches story, even though the elites continue to sell the idea to the American public. Why is that? What does that mean for the rest of us? As the material conditions of capitalism continues to decline, Americans are searching for answers. We'll discuss this and a lot more. Plus, in the 2nd hour of the program, researcher, educator, and author, Stu Wexler joins us to discuss his previous books.
Stu is the author of "The Awful Grace of God: Religious Terrorism, White Supremacy, and the Unsolved Murder of Martin Luther King, Jr" and "Shadow Warfare: The History of America's Undeclared Wars."
Both books are extremely relevant to the discussion we are having today.
