At what point then is the approach of danger to be expected? I answer, if it ever reach us, it must spring up amongst us. It cannot come from abroad. If destruction be our lot, we must ourselves be its author and finisher. As a nation of freemen, we must live through all time,
or die by suicide. —Abraham Lincoln, Lyceum Address, 1838
Thom Hartmann, the most popular progressive radio host in America and New York Times bestselling author will be visiting KSQD “Be Bold America!” to talk about his latest book in his Hidden History series, The Hidden History of American Oligarchy: Reclaiming Our Democracy from the Ruling Class.
Billionaire oligarchs want to own our republic and they are nearly there thanks to legislation and Supreme Court decisions that they have essentially bought. They put Trump and his political allies into office and support a vast network of think tanks, publications, and social media that everyday pushes our nation closer and closer to police-state tyranny. With the increasing right-wing control of the media, unlimited campaign contributions, and a conservative takeover of the judicial system, we are at a crisis point.
Thom will also share his views on the January 6 attack on the Capitol and what role the oligarchy played over the years that led to an insurrection against democracy.
