Republican Gomorrah: Inside the Movement That Shattered the Party
i'm currently reading a compelling book about how the christian right and the modern-day republican party have become one in the same (so much for separation of church + state, right?). the book also provides a window into about a million other themes--freedom, authority, racism, religion, resentment, demagoguery, american history, party politics, etc.
above all else, the author's command of language is both humbling and deeply enchanting.
NOTE: listen to a wonderful interview with the author, max blumenthal here.
