About this album
This album deals with some of the most pressing issues in America and of our time and how they came to be: the rise of the new Republican party and its dangerous mix of ideas; the weakness and servility of the Democratic party, along with its inability to properly serve as a check on Republican power; the disastrous war in Iraq; the failed Drug War; the perniciousness of domestic terrorist and militant groups; the increasing power of the media, and how it largely lost its way as a check on corporate and government power; our toxic combination of Neoliberal Market Fundamentalist economic policies … , Corporatism, and Crony Capitalism; and the strengthening of the surveillance state and the difficult balancing act between security and liberty. It’s an album for a very divided nation at a serious crossroads in its history.
