Summary
"Ralph Nader has fought for over fifty years on behalf of American citizens against the reckless influence of corporations on our society. At this pivotal political moment, Americans are more disillusioned with their political leaders than ever. Large majorities tell pollsters that big corporations have too much political power. The ever tightening influence of big business on the mainstream media, elections and our local, state and federal governments, have caused many Americans to believe they have no political voice. In Unstoppable, Nader ramps up the fight and makes a hugely persuasive case that American citizens are not powerless. Unstoppable is about the emerging political re-alignment that is combining the Left and the Right against converging corporate-government tyranny. Large segments from the progressive, conservative, and libertarian political camps find themselves aligned in opposition to the destruction of civil liberties, the bloated and economically draining corporate welfare state, the relentless perpetuation of America's wars, sovereignty-shredding free trade agreements, and the unpunished crimes of Wall Street against Main Street. These are all issues that can be traced back to the growing influence of corporate goliaths and their ability to combine forces with indentured government against the interests of the broader public. Nader draws on half a century of his own experience working with the grassroots and Congress and tells of many surprising victories that have united progressive and conservative forces. As a participator in and keen observer of these budding alliances, he breaks new ground in showing how these coalitions can overcome specific obstacles that divide and rule them and expand their power on Capitol Hill, in the courts, and in the arena of public opinion. Nader provides a blueprint for how Americans on both sides of the aisle can fight against the corporate state and crony capitalism. Nader shows how they can reclaim their right to consume safe foods and drugs, breathe clean air, receive fair rewards for their work, regain control of taxpayer assets, and achieve a more self-reliant economy. Far from espousing 'let's meet half-way' type compromises, Nader argues that it is in the interest of citizens of different political labels to join in the struggle against the corporate state that will, if left unchecked, ruin the Republic, shred our constitution, and stampede over the rights of the American people"--
