America today is not the America of the past. The Republican Party is unrecognizable. But in his new book What it Took to Win, author and history professor  Michael Kazin, discerns a theme that still works as we head into election season. Among the varied demographics, people want the government to work for them. Today’s right plays on a sense that it works for “those people,” not “us.” This fear of insecurity has fed the right wing culture war. Americans are consistently against corporate greed; social movements can make it safe for politicians to say that.  Kazin says identifying and promoting “Moral Capitalism” works. Give a listen!
