Real Common Sense: Using Our Founding Values to Reclaim Our Nation for the 99% Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Real Common Sense insists that America, plagued with consumerism and private interests, has strayed from its Founding principles and the vision for America of our forefathers. Brian Kahn exposes the deceptions of the extreme Right and reminds us of the real Tom Paine who would be baffled to have "inspired" this explosion of reactionary politics. Real Common Sense reminds us of the great principles and values on which our country was founded--freedom, equality, democracy--and how previous generations have fought for them in the very best moments in our nation's history. And it calls on us, during these difficult times, to pick up the torch and do what needs to be done if we are to create an America worthy of our grandchildren.

Synopsis:

America's extreme Right falsely claims the Founding Fathers as allies for their radical agenda. Pundit Glenn Beck has gone so far as to use the title of Tom Paine's famous 1776 pamphlet Common Sense for his own book--a book that attacks the political, social and economic rights which Paine and the Founders fought for.

It's time to cut through the rhetoric, smoke, and spin, and get back to our core American values. We have gone off course as a country by emphasizing consumerism over citizenship, entertainment over education, and me over we. By rediscovering the moral compass our Founders put into place, we can create a united America, and a future worthy of our grandchildren.
