eBook Description: America has a problem. The world knows it. Most Americans feel it. What exactly is it? Where America Went Wrong exposes the problem and shows what we must do about it. The problem is that America over the last forty years or so has become increasingly more undemocratic. Our government is dominated by powerful special interests, especially corporate interests that have gained untrammeled dominance over American life. Not only are governmental questions important to average Americans not addressed, but in granting special favors to the wealthiest Americans and American corporations our government assures our free market economy can not operate fairly and properly. John R. Talbott demonstrates that greater direct democracy is the solution to what ails America, and also to what ails most of the developing world. As Al Smith observed, surely "...the ills of democracy can be cured by more democracy." Here Mr. Talbott makes a powerful argument on behalf of the people that their system of governing has a fundamental flaw that prevents it from being responsive to the electorate.
