THE struggle to mend AMERICA—
BEFORE IT’S TOO LATE.
In the phrases of Harvard economist Niall Ferguson, the USA is “an empire at the fringe of chaos.” Why? Glenn Beck thinks the answer's beautiful easy: simply because we’ve became our backs at the Constitution.
Yes, our nation is financially broke, yet that’s only a facet impression of our damaged spirit, our damaged religion in govt, the damaged supplies by means of our leaders, and a damaged political procedure that has centralized energy on the fee of person rights.
There is lots of labor forward, yet we can’t circulate ahead until eventually we first know the way we came. beginning with the yankee Revolution, Glenn takes readers on an show teach via 234 years of background, culminating with the nice Recession and the bipartisan recklessness of Presidents Bush and Obama. It’s the historical past lesson all of us needed we’d had at school. (Did you recognize, for instance, that FDR as soon as made a key New Deal coverage choice according to his fortunate number?)
Along the best way, you’ll see how every thing you idea you knew in regards to the political events is a lie, how Democrats and Republicans alike used to struggle for minimal executive and greatest freedom, and the way either events were taken over by way of a melanoma known as “progressivism.” through the tip, you’ll comprehend why no president, no congress and no courtroom can repair this challenge by myself. having a look towards them for solutions is like taking a look towards the sea for consuming water— it appears promising, however the outcome is catastrophic.
After revealing the path of lies that introduced us right here, Broke exposes the reality approximately what we’re quite dealing with. most folk have visible items of the puzzle, yet only a few have ever noticeable the complete picture—and for extraordinarily reliable cause: Our leaders have performed every little thing of their strength to conceal it. If american citizens understood how dire issues quite are, they might be hard radical reform instantaneously. regardless of the rhetoric, that’s no longer the type of switch our legislators relatively think in.
Finally, Broke presents the wish that incorporates realizing the reality. when you see what we’re particularly up opposed to, it’s a lot more uncomplicated to strengthen a practical plan. to mend ourselves financially, Glenn argues, we need to repair ourselves first. that implies a few critical introspection and, finally, a sequence of activities that would unite all americans round the proposal of shared sacrifice. in spite of everything, this new release is probably not requested to hurricane shores, yet we're being requested to do anything simply as serious to holding freedom.
Packed with nice tales from background, chalkboard-style teachable moments, customized illustrations, and Glenn Beck’s trademark mixture of leisure and enlightenment, Broke makes the case that after you’re touring within the mistaken path, moderate path corrections won’t minimize it—you have to take drastic motion. via a go back to person rights, an uncompromising adherence to the structure, and an entire rethinking in regards to the function of presidency in a unfastened society, Glenn exposes the assumption of “transformation” for the revolutionary smokescreen that it really is, and in its place builds a compelling case that recovery is the one approach ahead.
