Democracy in Chains: An Interview with author Nancy MacLean

RadioActive host Kim Clause interviews Nancy MacLean, author of the  Democracy in Chains, The Deep History of the Radical Right’s Stealth Plan for America.  In this explosive expose,  award-winning historian Nancy MacLean reveals how the ideas of Nobel-Prize winning political economist James McGill Buchanan have been used to undermine the power of voters in a country whose Constitution is founded on the principle ‘We the people’. Now, with Mike Pence as Vice President, this chilling movement has a loyalist in the White House, as well supporters in the House, the Senate, a majority of state governments, and the court.

This book is scarier than anything written by horror fiction writer Steven King because MacLean deals with a clear and present danger that just happens to be real threat to our democracy

Nancy MacLean will be the keynote speaker during the Kicking the Koch Habit and Expanding Democracy for All conference on August 10th & August 11th. Conference details and tickets at
