Summary
"The great elder statesman of consumer rights shows how previous administrations allowed unchecked corporate power to lead us to the criminality of Trump. Nader brings together the outrages of the Trump administration with the key flaws and failures of the previous administrations--both Republican and Democratic--that have led us to this precipice. Writing as a Washington, D.C. activist and people's advocate since the early 1960s--one who has caused to be enacted more impactful legislation than almost any sitting president or legislator--Nader shows how Trump's crimes and misdemeanors followed the path of no resistance of the Obama, Bush and Clinton regimes which ushered in the extreme rise of corporate power and the abandonment of the poor and middle classes"--
