America faces its greatest threat since the Civil War. The worst fears of the Founders are being realized, as powerful corporate interests have taken over our culture and representative government. We the People now face a fundamental choice: take back our country ... or do nothing, and become victims of tyranny and empire.

Chronicling the repeated attempts to subvert American democracy - from John Adams Alien & Sedition Acts in 1798 to the PATRIOT Act of today - Thom tells the story of what we can do to restore democracy in America.  Most fun, this is an "illustrated book" - a 200 page non-fiction comic book.  The publisher has built a website about it with lots of great information that you can find here.  A book written for adults but accessible by all, this is a brilliant look into the history of America and its many possible futures.

History will not be kind to the billionaire Trump whisperers responsible for so many COVID-19 deaths
