Book Club

Friends of TheDGT.org get together to discuss a book with interesting political themes.

Visit our Amazon Book Club page to make suggestions!

Our next meeting is:

February 10th from 2-4 pm

We will be focusing on chapters 9 through 12 of “Democracy in Chains” by Nancy MacLean. Here’s your guiding quote for the session: “Government did not have the right to ‘coerce’ the individual, beyond the basic level of the rule of law and public order.  The market was the realm of freedom, of freely chosen, mutually valued exchange.  But under the influence of two wealthy individuals in particular (the Koch brothers), the movement was turning to an equally troubling form of coercion: achieving its ends essentially through trickery, through deceiving trusting people about its real intentions in order to take them to a place where, on their own, given complete information, they probably would not go.”
