Summary "The current political landscape reveals a divided nation. Many feel that the Trump administration is steering America's government in a totalitarian direction. Death of a Nation traces the beginnings of this shift in political climate, its development, and where it may be headed. Was 9/11 engineered and designed to allow the Bush administration to hijack America's democracy? Did fear mongering allow the US government to convince the American public that conducting huge, expensive wars in Afghanistan and Iraq was a necessary counter to defeat fabricated culprits in the Middle East? Was this all a plot to induce a financial boom that robbed the middle class of its wealth and brought the world to its knees in 2008? Examining the key players within America's government, as well as the states that supported and carried out the attacks, Death of a Nation attempts to reveal that 9/11 was falsely portrayed by the Bush administration, and in fact carried out by elements within the United States government and military to further their own geopolitical and financial interests. Death of a Nation provides a searing indictment of the role now played by America in global affairs and warns that, with a broken society and body politic, the world is seeing the rise of one of the most overtly fascist nations since the Second World War--creating profoundly disturbing implications for the future of humanity. A generation is coming of age that doesn't remember 9/11 happening, and knows of no world but this. We can't allow this to be the new normal. Death of a Nation will change your view of the events of 9/11 and force you to question America's self-appointed position as leader of the free world"-- Provided by publisher.
