Overview

Myth America exposes the lag of major American institutions behind the demands of the 21st century and the reinforcement of this lag by the media and schools miseducating the public. The author shows how the priorities of these institutions are undermining rather than achieving ecological sustainability and social justice.
Corporate power is driving public policy and Americans are being propagandized in the name of education to believe that capitalism is the basis for a democratic society. Foreign policy then projects self-righteous myths to justify world dominance and threatens the future of humanity. The search for strategies to gain public control of these dangerous currents is interwoven throughout the book.
