Democracy Under Assault
Quick Facts: Democracy Under Assault
Publisher: Sol Ventures PressSummary: Democracy Under Assault is an in-depth overview of the political right movement in America, tracing its agenda to its philosophical roots in nineteenth century science and socioeconomics, and delineating the alliances established over more than three decades that have formed a powerful political machine. Readers are escorted over a landscape of issues, much of it presented in the words of religious fundamentalist political operatives, many moving below the radar, who define a battle between two world views that cannot coexist.. Swenson traces the evolution of a theopolitical movement that seeks to overturn the underpinnings of representative democracy - church-state separation, separation of powers and principles of equality and justice. She looks behind the language that has been coopted in the service of an extreme agenda. At the very moment neoconservatives purport to sow the seeds of democracy in the Middle East, U.S. democracy faces serious challenges at home.
