The Thom Hartmann Hidden History Series
The Hidden History Series includes ten paramount and timely books that break down the biggest obstacles of today, placing them in historic context and providing real, tangible calls to action both for individuals and society at large. Each book concisely addresses these pressing current issues and offers a set of solutions with “roadmaps” for individuals and communities to follow to create a more equitable and prosperous economy and a safer, more just society for all.
Thom lays out the ways in which inequality in America has shifted over the last 50 years and identify a handful of sensical, powerful solutions that address these issues at different levels, such as getting money out of politics, addressing social despair and economic inequality, strengthening democratic institutions of governance, and fighting fear.

Of course, the courts have center-stage here.
Mr. Hartman makes clear, we, our grandchildren, face an "existential crisis" in the form of human-caused global warming. The fossil fuel industry has a role in shaping courts of the 21st century, as they have a role in climate deception and 415 ppm CO2 atmospheric density, and climbing rapidly. Brushing up on the history of our courts should serve well, then, to explain climate deception, in part. Like, how did corporations gain personhood, and how did money in politics become a form of free speech?
Mr. Hartman's writing gets to the critical history many baby boomers ignore.
So, here's an essential book to both remind us and enlighten us for the future.

Author: "Wilder: A Social Justice Phantasy"
This series is a great way to discern the workings of the meaning and corruption of our constitutional rights by the billionaires and other power brokers by using the judicial branch against the common citizen in favor of the proletariat.
