READ THIS BOOK!  Brook Gladstone's take on the current political and social environment is scary, blunt, and appropriate.  Her historical perspective is insightful and necessary.  From Philip K. Dick and Ursula K. Le Guin to Jonathan Swift and John Milton, from Arthur Schopenhauer and Walter Lippmann to Neil Postman and Ned Resnikoff, Gladstone draws observations and conclusions from a wide variety of sources to bring clarity to the world situation and especially Trump's America. The Demagogue danger to Democracy can not be understated or left to someone else to fix.  We must all be AWARE!
