Summary
Taking a close look at the dense fabric that our government weaves between war, state power, and economics, this collection of essays reveals the growing authorityand corruptionof the American state. Covering topics from the Lyndon Johnson presidency to the provocatively titled article military-economic fascism on the military-industrial-congressional complex, it argues that the U.S. government consistently exploits national crises and then invents timely rhetoric that limits the rights and liberties of all citizens for the benefit of the few, be they political leaders or various industrialists in the areas of defense and security. As its title suggests, this book presents a clear narrative of trends and eventsfrom the United States' entry into World War II to the origins of income taxcausing individuals to question whether those in power are truly blind to the effects and causes of their policies
