Our political system is dysfunctional, our economy is going through the worst period in eighty years, our financial system is borderline criminal, our schools are falling apart, most of the things we use are now made in other countries, and we are running out of the seemingly unlimited resources which provided unprecedented prosperity for most Americans. The coming century will see rising sea levels and starvation on a global scale, as well as the insurmountable problems of aging populations in all the developed countries and the rising costs of health care associate with that. Meanwhile the media that is a necessary part of a democracy is not only failing to inform Americans of the problems and logical solutions, but is in many cases actively misleading them in order to support the agenda of the wealthy and powerful multinational corporations. In Going Down, Tuepker provides well-organized explanations of these problems, what we SHOULD be doing about them, and WHY we are not doing the right things.
