My next read…The Wrecking Crew

If you google the wrecking crew you may get a rock band that I helped shoot a music video on in ’96 with Peter Lippman. What a talented guy…he taught me so much about video production. Keep looking though on the google list because that’s not what I’m talking about here…

I read Thomas Frank’s last book about the culture wars called What’s the matter With Kansas.
In this new book he expands on the idea of how we got where we find ourselves today in America. Talking to Amy Goodman he said, “Fantastic misgovernment of the kind we have seen is not an accident, nor is it the work of a few bad individuals. It is the consequence of triumph by a particular philosophy of government, by a movement that understands the liberal state as a perversion and considers the market the ideal nexus of human society. This movement is friendly to industry not just by force of campaign contributions but by conviction.” – Thomas Frank

Thomas Frank is the bestselling author and columnist with the Wall Street Journal. His previous books include What’s the Matter with Kansas? and One Market Under God. His latest book is The Wrecking Crew: How Conservatives Rule.
