Dark Money The Hidden History of the Billionaires Behind the Rise of the Radical Right Summary ò 2 Why is America living in an age of profound economic ineuality Why despite the desperate need to address climate change have even modest environmental efforts been defeated again and again Why have protections for employees been decimated Why do hedge fund billionaires pay a far lower tax rate than middle class workers The conventional answer is that a popular uprising against ‘big government’ led to.

Dark Money The Hidden History of the Billionaires Behind the Rise of the Radical Right by Jane Mayer is a 2016 Doubleday publication I can read supernatural horror novels the grittiest crime thrillers true crime and a host of other material that sends shivers down my spine but nothing paralyzes me with fear than hidden forces influencing government in barely detectable ways influencing the uality of life for millions of people in the process After this election it has become clear this radical right wing movement has been brewing for a good while Billionaires basically buying America using their money to infiltrate government to either promote or thwart policies in a way the average American could not imagine in order to protect and add to their vast wealth Hedge funds special interests propaganda the works The Koch brothers Charles and David extreme libertarians have been systematically chipping away at big government for years along with a select group of other billionaires bent on keeping the rich rich and the poor poor while they amass even greater fortunes for themselves Power and money have always gone hand in hand The Koch s and their cronies simply devised clever ways to keep their agendas hidden and side step some tricky tax laws and rules in order to force their personal beliefs onto an unsuspecting public finding and using tax loopholes that benefit them at the expense of the working class while attempting to reduce regulations that would effectively should them down There s a class warfare all right But it s my class the rich class that s making war and we re winning Warren BuffetWhile Donald Trump doesn t appear to have found much favor with the Koch s while running for office often spouting rhetoric that did not fit perfectly into their ideal plan it would seem things may have worked out for some of their pals though Just look at the appointment of Betsy DeVos as Secretary of Education by the incoming Trump administration The DeVos were heavy contributors to the Koch brother s causes over the years and Betsy has already stated she would like to freeze the federal government out of our educational system No matter what your political views are or your opinion on climate change the chapters that show the Koch brothers sending out propaganda pushing climate change as a hoax while being funded by those who stand to lose the most by environmental efforts is disturbing to say the least It doesn t matter what the issue is really it s the possibility that anything can be manipulated or enough doubt created to kill or promote whatever they wish with their money and power This book traces the origins of the Koch brother s campaign who helped them supported them and the tactics they used in building the radical right movement which kept Obama from making good on some of his promises and effectively had a role in putting America in the situation we now face When called upon to split a treat with others he would say with a wise guy grin I just want my fair share which is all of it Charles KochOne interesting point the author makes points to an interview Charles Koch gave in which he stated That welfare condemned the poor to a lifetime of dependency and hopelessness He claimed he wanted people to have the hope that they can advance on their own merits rather than the hope that somebody gives them something Only to state in the very same interview that he promoted his own son to the presidency of Koch fertilizer It didn t seem to occur to him that his son like many others in his network benefited from a job in the family business or inherited a fortune rather than being condemned to a lifetime of dependency and hopelessness because somebody gave them something The Koch s among others diligently worked behind the scenes through organizations like the AFP or Super PAC s or in some case through entities completely unknown thus the term Dark Money to fund their agendas which amounted to a mind boggling amount of money It didn t always go their wayTrump is not exactly on the same playing field as the Koch s especially with his threats to impose tariffs on businesses and such but they did help pave the way for him with their building of the conservative radical right and looking at Trump s cabinet picks which are packed with billionaires I think we need to be very concerned and watchful so than ever Overall this is a book I would recommend everyone read no matter which way you lean politically There is a lot of information to digest but reading this book is truly eye opening exposing the battle between big government and big money Either way in all likelihood the middle and working class citizens lose with the rich staying rich and the poor staying poor
