By Glenn Greenwald
From "the most crucial voice to have entered the political discourse in years" (Bill Moyers) and the journalist who broke the tale on NSA spying courses comes a scathing critique of the two-tiered method of justice that has emerged in America
From the nation's beginnings, the legislations was once to be the nice equalizer in American existence, the guarantor of a typical algorithm for all. yet over the last 4 a long time, the main of equality ahead of the legislation has been successfully abolished. in its place, a two-tiered procedure of justice guarantees that the country's political and fiscal type is almost immune from prosecution, approved to behave with out restraint, whereas the politically powerless are imprisoned with larger ease and in higher numbers than in the other nation within the world.
Starting with Watergate, carrying on with on throughout the Iran-Contra scandal, and culminating with Obama's defensive of Bush-era officers from prosecution, Glenn Greenwald lays naked the mechanisms that experience come to defend the elite from responsibility. He exhibits how the media, either political events, and the courts have abetted a procedure that has produced torture, conflict crimes, household spying through the NSA, and fiscal fraud.
Cogent, sharp, and pressing, it is a no-holds-barred indictment of a profoundly un-American approach that sanctions immunity on the best and mercilessness for everybody else.
