Summary
  • "When American leaders talk about regimes, they're usually talking about "evil" governments like Saddam Hussein's Iraq, or the regimes of North Korea, Iran, Syria or Cuba. But the dictionary defines regime as "a manner, method or system of rule." Here, Charles Derber argue that the U.S. is also governed by a regime - a corporate regime whose aim is to shift sovereignty from citizens to transnational corporations, and to transform government into a business partner committed to maximizing global profits for a small number of executives and shareholders."
  • "A regime that doesn't represent its citizens must maintain itself through lies. Derber shows how Bush has cynically sought to, as Condelezza Rice once put it, "capitalize on the opportunities" presented by 9/11. Derber also reveals how the Bush administration has used the so-called "war on terror" (the term itself is a kind of lie) to frighten and distract the public. But Regime Change Begins at Home goes beyond previous discussion of Bush lies, showing that the corporate regime - the real power system - itself survives only through deceptions. The regime has misled all of us for 25 years."
  • "But this regime can be changed. Derber reminds us that there have been previous corporate regimes in American history, and details how the current regime has become by far the most extremist. If the corporate regimes of the Gilded Age and Roaring Twenties could be successfully overturned, this one can be, too. Regime Change Begins at Home offers strategies - including a new politics uniting liberals, conservatives, and populists - to create regime change again. Derber describes the social movements now fighting to achieve a new regime. And, most important, Ira shows, step by step, how you, along with your fellow citizens, can make it happen."--Jacket
