A Book to Read and Love: Strangers In Their Own Land: Anger and Mourning on the American Right - Arlie Russell Hochschild


A short summary of the book Strangers In Their Own Land:

The point of the ultra-right.

My favorite quote from the book:

"The general talk around town was that the choice was between the environment and jobs."


Questions to ponder while reading Strangers In Their Own Land:

Do you believe that corporations put forth propaganda?

Do you feel that most laws and regulations attack people, not companies?

My thoughts about Strangers In Their Own Land:

I love the term "empathy wall"

It is important to look at everyone's "side"

The environmental damage caused by oil and petrochem in Louisiana hurts my heart and it completely unacceptable.
