The Masses are the Ruling Classes proposes the radical, yet seemingly innocuous view that social policy in the United States is determined by mass consent. Contemporary explanations of decision making in the US typically attribute power over policy making to a variety of hidden forces and illegitimate elites holding the masses innocent of their own problems. Yet the enormous openness of the society and near-universal suffrage sustain democratic consent as more plausible than the alternatives -- conspiracy, propaganda, usurpation, autonomous government, and imperfect pluralism. Contrary to prevailing explanations, government is not either autonomous or out of control, business and wealthy individuals have not usurped control of the nation, large segments of the population are not dispossessed of the vote or of a voice in public affairs, and the media has not formed a conspiracy with Hollywood and liberals to deny Americans their God-given freedoms. Despite the multitude of problems that the nation faces, its citizens are not oppressed. In this pithy yet provocative book, Epstein argues that Democracy in the United States is not progressive but is instead populist, and that the core of the populist ideology is romantic rather than pragmatic.

A comprehensive guide to the integrated detox of body, mind, and spirit • Presents a practical 28-day plant-based program, divided into four cycles, to initiate and maximize physical, mental, and spiritual detoxification • Integrates the ancient wisdom of yoga, Ayurveda, and Traditional Chinese Medicine with naturopathic principles and contemporary nutritional science • Provides plant-based smoothie and meal recipes, tips on liver health and healthy elimination, exercise and yoga practices, breathing and meditation techniques to address toxic thought patterns, and Karma/Forgiveness cleansing rituals Integrating the ancient wisdom of yoga, Ayurveda, and Traditional Chinese Medicine with naturopathic principles and contemporary nutritional science, Jonathan Glass, M.Ac., C.A.T., presents a practical 28-day program, divided into four cycles, designed to initiate and maximize detoxification of your body, mind, and spirit from the harmful effects of the modern lifestyle. Glass reveals the interconnectedness of what we consume, both mentally and nutritionally, emphasizing that cleansing of the body alone will offer only a temporary solution if we do not also apply the same cleansing principles to our thoughts and actions. He provides delicious plant-based smoothie and meal recipes, step-by-step instructions to resolve blockages and stagnation in the physical or emotional body, including tips on liver health and healthy elimination, guidance on how to cleanse the proliferation of toxic thought patterns in the mind, as well as outlining a supportive Karma/Forgiveness cleanse ritual to detoxify the spirit. He explains how the soul is encased in five coverings, known as Koshas, and details how to harmonize all five Koshas through a plant-based diet, exercise, yoga, breathing techniques, and meditation/introspective practices. Citing wisdom from teachers he has revered over the years and sages past and present, as well as teachings from the Vedas and other ancient texts, Glass reinforces that how we eat, think, and live directly impacts our health in body, mind, spirit, and our relationships. He also shows how the principles of the Total Life Cleanse inherently support the environment. By empowering you with a new way of thinking, seeing, and being, the Total Life Cleanse program allows you not only to heal yourself by changing your life patterns but also to heal others, as we foster a deeper connection to the life that surrounds us and ultimately the universe.

If you're like most people, your concept of what it takes to be successful is the exact opposite of the truth! Ask entrepreneurs like Richard Branson (Virgin companies) or Howard Schultz (Starbucks) and they'll tell you: success is about following your intuition or "gut instinct" more than special skills or higher education. It's about letting go rather than grasping. It's about following your heart, not your head. And that's very good news for you. Because as Jaden Sterling writes in his new book The Alchemy of True Success, you were born with everything you need to live a spectacular life. The answers are already within you, all you have to do is learn the "alchemy" of success and live it. Jaden is an enthusiastic supporter of the belief that we manifest in our lives what we think. We create our own reality. What we dream, what we envision is what we become. This is perhaps the most liberating realization in human history: that we are NOT victims of circumstance! It is unusual in a book such as this to find a section about the physical body and healthy habits, but Jaden is not alone in believing that mind, body and spirit are inseparable - and therefore you must address your physical health as part of any program of seeking true success. That's why you'll read about caring for your physical self - including the all-important pineal gland that's the seat of your spirit. What you'll get from reading this book: Liberation to pursue and achieve your dreams Techniques that will prepare you for the greatness to come A new, positive understanding of your place in the universe A surge of optimism and confidence in yourself A new understanding of what true success really is Self-evaluation after each chapter to keep you on track as you prepare yourself for a very different approach to life. After reading The Alchemy of True Success you will be well prepared to consciously create the life of your dreams!"
