In this scathing critique of the reactionary values dominating contemporary America, Milan Zafirovski exposes the `societal curse' that inflicts this so-called promised land today. Based on a sociological as well as historical analysis, he shows how the triangle of capitalist dictatorship, fundamentalist theocracy and exclusionary democracy perpetually creates the `New Dark Ages' that defines today's lived reality in North America.
This much-needed intervention holds the mirror to a land whose perverted slave-and-master economy leaves no refuge or escape to those lured by the idea of freedom and happiness. Brutally honest and uncompromising, `Curse in the "Promised Land''?' is a must-read for everyone willing to unmask the destructive conservative ideology that drives America.
