Democracy in Chains: The Deep History of the Radical Right's Stealth Plan for America by Nancy MacLean: Conversation Starters
James McGill Buchanan was an economics professor at George Mason University who died in 2013. He was a Nobel Prize winner whose political ideas could very well be the primary cause behind the political divisiveness that the United States is going through. His teachings directed America's billionaires to adopt an agenda that promote despotism and threaten democracy. Buchanan proposed using stealth for right wing groups to sow doubt in people's belief in the democratic institutions that serve them. Multi-awarded author and history professor Nancy Maclean digs deep into Buchanan's ideas and its destabilizing political repercussions. Democracy in Chains won the Lannar Foundation Cultural Freedom Award, The Nation's Most Valuable Book of 2017, and the 2018 Lillian Smith Book Award. A Brief Look Inside:
