Abstract:

"Our current government is failing us - the poor most dramatically. Global market forces of information and capital are destroying the old top-down politics. If present trends are allowed to continue, America will stumble into a grim Cyber Future of community breakdown and spiraling inequality - a real-life nightmare reminiscent of the fiction of William Gibson." "But James Pinkerton offers hope that we can yet create a prosperous, tolerant, and compassionate society for the next century. Radically streamlined government must be part of the answer, but such transformation must be balanced by a new paradigm of choice, empowerment, inclusiveness, and decentralization that leads to a new spirit of communitarian healing at the grassroots." "Pinkerton brings his practical experience in electoral politics to a sharp yet constructive critique of both parties. He warns the rampaging Republicans against culture-war jihads, but he counsels Democrats that they are doomed if they can't break their Faustian bargain with bureaucracy. And if both parties fail, he adds, some new third-party political configuration is inevitable. On the eve of the 1996 elections, no book could be more timely than What Comes Next."--BOOK JACKET.
