He’s written a new expose called "Up from Conservatism: Why the Right is Wrong for America." in which he charges that the Republican overclass have used the culture wars to trick Americans into putting the party of big business in control of Congress. Lind is a staff writer at the New Yorker and author of The Next American Nation: The New Nationalism and the Fourth American Revolution.
