Content descriptions

General Note: Originally published: New York : Free Press, 2018.
Formatted Contents Note: Introduction: Our ship of fools -- The convergence -- Importing a serf class -- Foolish wars -- Shut up, they explained -- The diversity diversion -- Elites invade the bedroom -- They don't pick up trash anymore -- Epilogue: Righting the ship.
Summary, etc.: The people who run America now barely interact with it. They fly on their own planes, ski on their own mountains, watch sporting events far from the stands in sky boxes. They have total contempt for you. "They view America the way a private equity firm sizes up an aging conglomerate," Tucker Carlson writes, "as something outdated they can profit from. When it fails, they're gone." And traditional liberals are gone as well. The patchouli-scented hand-wringers who worried about whales and defended free speech have been replaced by globalists who hide their hard-edged economic agenda behind the smokescreen of identity politics. They'll outsource your job while lecturing you about transgender bathrooms. Left and right, Carlson says, are no longer meaningful categories in America. "The rift is between those who benefit from the status quo, and those who don't." Our leaders are fools, Carlson concludes, "unaware that they are captains of a sinking ship." But then he answers the all-important question: How do we put the country back on course?
