Screwed is a book written by Thom Hartmann that tackles how covert war conservatives and corporations wage war against the middle class men of America. It also discusses how such a war can have devastating effects of the livelihood of most people. Moreover, it aims to find the truth behind the occurrence of that kind of conflict and identify the people who will more or less benefit from waging wars.
The book provides a blow-by-blow account of what are supposed to be the lies concocted by the conservatives. The content of the book is also well-written and thoroughly researched. People will also feel like they are going back to their roots as the ideas presented are based on the principles valued by the people behind the American constitution. People belonging in the working class will feel very much valued as the author argues how people who are working full-time should have a comfortable life.
Some readers may argue with the author’s view regarding the interpretation of history. The use of the term liberal is also not very well explained. Meanwhile, there are other people who think that a number of facts indicated in the book are misinterpreted and do not qualify to be used in discussing the political issues of U.S.
The author argues how the U.S. government always favor corporations when making policies and legislations. He also discusses how he support the education of the middle class and how issues like progressive taxation and antitrust legislation to Social Security have lost their voice over the years.
