The Emerging Left-Right Alliance to Dismantle the Corporate State.

Capitalism and Equality

As an economic system based on private enterprise and markets, capitalism has been widely interpreted both as creative and productive for the way it produces wealth and well-being, and as a supporter of economic and political freedom. Others have argued that capitalism is a system of exploitation for  the  way  it generates significant benefits for  some at  the  expense of  others, and thus curtails individual freedom for  those at  the  bottom of  the  distribution of  wealth and income. Are these alternative positions equally convincing?

Is a new liberal/conservative coalition the only hope for America’s tattered democracy?

Whether you’re a regular or MAGA Republican, regular or progressive Democrat, Green Party or Libertarian, Ralph Nader’s Unstoppable is compulsory reading for those engaged in charting a new political future for America. Ralph Nader is a working class hero, a man of the people, by the people and for the people. He has never wavered; he is a true fighter for justice and a tireless promoter of the Golden Rule. He is a political giant who will never be appreciated, understood nor celebrated in his own time.

The bipartisan premise of the ‘Nader Think Tank’ provides the argument that together progressive republicans and democrats (disenchanted with the two-party duopoly) need to join forces to build a new party for the next election cycle that will take on the challenge of turning America into the true beacon of hope, justice and democracy in the world. For if America; the zenith of what’s best the west can offer in terms of legal traditions, governance, civil liberties and rule of law can’t pull this off, then may Goodness help us all. America will then have to admit its failure and cede the responsibility (of pulling the world back from the precipice) to the Chinese, Russians or even the European Union, and we might all wonder how well that’s going to go.


Unstoppable: The Emerging Left-Right Alliance to Dismantle the Corporate State – by Ralph Nader

Ralph Nader has fought for over fifty years on behalf of American citizens against the reckless influence of corporations and their government patrons on our society. Now he ramps up the fight and makes a persuasive case that Americans are not powerless. In Unstoppable, he explores the emerging political alignment of the Left and the Right against converging corporate-government tyranny.

Large segments from the progressive, conservative, and libertarian political camps find themselves aligned in opposition to the destruction of civil liberties, the economically draining corporate welfare state, the relentless perpetuation of America’s wars, sovereignty-shredding trade agreements, and the unpunished crimes of Wall Street against Main Street. Nader shows how Left-Right coalitions can prevail over the corporate state and crony capitalism.

Ralph draws on his extensive experience working with grassroots organizations in Washington and reveals the many surprising victories by united progressive and conservative forces. As a participator in, and keen observer of, these budding alliances, he breaks new ground in showing how such coalitions can overcome specific obstacles that divide them, and how they can expand their power on Capitol Hill, in the courts, and in the decisive arena of public opinion.

Americans can reclaim their right to consume safe foods and drugs, live in healthy environments, receive fair rewards for their work, resist empire, regain control of taxpayer assets, strengthen investor rights, and make bureaucrats more efficient and accountable. Nader argues it is in the interest of citizens of different political labels to join in the struggle against the corporate state that will, if left unchecked, ruin the Republic, override our constitution, and shred the basic rights of the American people.
