“Kill It To Save It”

An Autopsy of Capitalism’s Triumph over Democracy

On May 4, 2017, the Harvard Book Store was standing room only for “Kill It To Save It” author Corey Dolgon’s book reading and Q&A session. Dolgon was a gracious and affable host to a large group of friends, family, colleagues, mentors, and as he put it “new friends.”

"The left is in disbelief by Trump’s election. Thankfully, Corey Dolgon’s book had anticipated such a development. Dolgon shows how capitalist hegemony and hyper individualism reshaped America’s national identity, making us ever more susceptible to embracing a Reality TV star who promises to “Make America Great Again” despite promoting the worst elements of the country’s historical DNA. Required reading for those hoping not only to resist Trumpism, but envision a new left for the 21st Century."
