“With Liberty and Justice for Some”
Hosted by Mitch Jeserich
“Glenn Greenwald is the American Left’s most fearless political commentator…His rock-ribbed principles and absolute disregard for partisan favor have made U.S. political discourse edgier, more confrontational, and much, much better” –RACHEL MADDOW
The central founding principle of the United States was that the rule of law would be the great equalizer in American life, the guarantor of a level playing field and a common set of rules for all. But in a revolutionary shift over the past four decades, this principle has been eviscerated. Starting with Watergate, continuing on through the fraud that caused the 2008 financial crisis, and culminating with Obama’s shielding of Bush-era crimes from prosecution, Greenwald lays bare the mechanisms that have come to protect America’s political and financial elite from all accountability.
Cogent, sharp, and urgent, With Liberty and Justice for Some exposes new and profoundly un-American justice system that spurs elite criminality, protects an oligarchical political culture, and sanctions immunity at the top while driving unyielding mercilessness for everyone else.
Glenn Greenwald is ”the most important voice to have entered the political discourse in years.” — BILL MOYERS
Author of the New York Times’ bestsellers “How Would a Patriot Act” and “Great American Hypocrites,” Greenwald is a former constitutional law and civil rights attorney and a contributing editor at Salon.com.
