From "the most important voice to have entered the political
discourse in years" (Bill Moyers) and the journalist who broke the
story on NSA spying programs comes a scathing critique of the
two-tiered system of justice that has emerged in America
From the nation's beginnings, the law was to be the great
equalizer in American life, the guarantor of a common set of rules
for all. But over the past four decades, the principle of equality
before the law has been effectively abolished. Instead, a
two-tiered system of justice ensures that the country's political
and financial class is virtually immune from prosecution, licensed
to act without restraint, while the politically powerless are
imprisoned with greater ease and in greater numbers than in any
other country in the world.
Starting with Watergate, continuing on through the Iran-Contra
scandal, and culminating with Obama's shielding of Bush-era
officials from prosecution, Glenn Greenwald lays bare the
mechanisms that have come to shield the elite from accountability.
He shows how the media, both political parties, and the courts have
abetted a process that has produced torture, war crimes, domestic
spying by the NSA, and financial fraud.
Cogent, sharp, and urgent, this is a no-holds-barred indictment
of a profoundly un-American system that sanctions immunity at the
top and mercilessness for everyone else.
