ONLY THE SUPER-RICH CAN SAVE US! is:
...the vivid account by political activist and best-selling author Ralph Nader that answers the question, "What if?" What if for once the driving force in America was harnessed in the interests of the citizens of this great nation? What if some of America’s most powerful individuals decided it was time to fix our government and return the power to the people? What if Walmart were persuaded to unionize? What if a national political party were formed with the sole purpose of clean elections? What if we really embraced the alternative forms of energy that will effectively clean up the environment? What if, one by one, we set out to solve each of the problems that plague us now in the real world?
This extraordinary book, backed by a major promotional budget and written by the author who knows the most about citizen action, returns us to the literature of American social movements—to Upton Sinclair, to John Steinbeck, to Stephen Crane—reminding us in the process that repairing the body politic of America is still possible.
It sounds like some sort of heavy-handed satire of ATLAS SHRUGGED, but I can't see anyone as glum and earnest as Ralph Nader pulling it off.
