Since Nixon's presidency, the Supreme Court has systematically ignored the rights of everyone except the powerful and wealthy. Narrator Dan Woren manages to convey the urgency of the author's arguments without sounding like he's preaching to the choir. Woren's evenhanded and carefully modulated delivery provides conclusive evidence of the right-leaning decisions that have disenfranchised so many Americans in a number of arenas: voting rights (in a ruling on gerrymandering), free speech (freeing corporations to support political candidates), and criminal justice (upholding a 25-year sentence for a shoplifter). One stark result of five decades of conservative decisions is the growing chasm of income inequality. This audiobook is for those who are interested in how one of the wheels of American democracy has come off the wagon. R.W.S. © AudioFile 2020, Portland, Maine [Published: JUNE 2020]
