America today is not the America of the past. But in his new book What it Took to Win, author and history professor  Michael Kazin, there is a thread that still works. 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 against corporate greed; but can there be social movements which make it safe for politicians to say that? Kazin says there can be and that thread is what he calls Moral Capitalism. Give a listen!
