For more than two decades Steve Bhaerman has shared his wit and wisdom in the countenance of Swami Beyondananda. In this dialogue he takes off his turban for some straight talk—not without a note of humor, but as himself, a crusader for the reclamation of our power as citizens of the United States. “People need to wake up. This is not a matter of Democrats and Republicans. It’s a matter of there’s been a huge brainwashing in this country. We’re up to deprogramming. That’s what this is all about.” With unflinching frankness he points to the ways our government is running out of control, undermining our democracy and creating a new world order based on fear and deception. From the policy of preemptive war to a wish for a “new Pearl Harbor” he cites the many atrocities being implemented by our leaders while our citizenry stands by unaware and unresponsive. But in the spirit of the Swami, Bhaerman has wordplay-laced wisdom to share, and now it comes in the form of a call to action. He outlines ways we can take action individually and through organized movements to take back our government and our country, so that it once again becomes the kind of superpower worthy of the respect of citizens of the world—all without losing our sense of humor.
