Theocratic Elite Hidden Fundamentalism versus Democracy – important yikes!

Caroline welcomes Jeff Sharlet (contributing editor for Harpers and Rolling Stone, research scholar at NYU’s Center for Religion and the Media) who’s forthcoming book, "The Family," is essential reading for all concerned about our democratic experiment.

Sharlet delineates the complex story of this secret theocratic society, known  as "The Family" that lives at the heart of our democracy, and is connected to a huge global network of "power players" in oil, energy, government, virtually everyone who feels that the world is best governed  by an elite secret theocratic kingdom, dedicated to dominance who embrace cultural imperialism – and that includes Hillary Clinton, who joined when she was First Lady.
