Must-read book: Lies, Incorporated: The World of Post-Truth Politics
Fighting for progressive change, we are bombarded with a litany of lies. Think about the last decade: climate denial, death panels, the myth of voter fraud, the lie that more guns make us safer, to name a few.
Ari Rabin-Havt, a longtime ally of CREDO, has written a remarkable book. Lies, Incorporated: The World of Post-Truth Politics, exposes the conservative movement’s lie generation machine. Not simply a debunking of conservative falsehoods, Lies, Incorporated tells the hidden stories of the people who profit from the invention of lies and the ways they inject them into the public. He names their names and unveils their tactics.
In order to advance progressive ideas, we need to defeat Lies, Incorporated. Ari’s book is a critical tool for progressive activists as it teaches us how to do just that.
Lies, Incorporated: The World of Post-Truth Politics is available on Amazon.com.
