Corey Dolgon on Kill It to Save It: An Autopsy of Capitalism's Triumph Over Democracy

 

 How have powerful Americans convinced their fellow citizens to support policies beneficial only to the wealthy? Why have so many given up on public education, safe food and safe streets, living wages – even on democracy itself? 

 

Kill it to Save it lays bare the hypocrisy of US political discourse by documenting the story of capitalism’s triumph over democracy. 

 

As the Progressive Left tries to understand how President Trump came to power, Corey Dolgon documents his historical, political and cultural road map. Dolgon argues that American citizens now accept policies that destroy the public sector and promote political stories that feel right “in the gut”, regardless of science or facts.

This is a call to action to rally for justice and dignity for all. America faces a crisis. Donald Trump's presidency threatens millions. We must rally, protest, organize, and support one another. We must resist. We rally for civil rights, immigrants' rights, reproductive rights, our environment, good jobs, and justice and safety in all of our communities.
