Millions of working Americans talk, act, and vote as if their economic interests match those of the megawealthy, global corporations, and the politicians who do their bidding. How did this happen? According to Hartmann, the apologists of the Right have become masters of the subtle and largely subconscious aspects of political communication. It's not an escalation in Iraq, it's a surge; it's not drilling for oil, it's exploring for energy. Conservatives didn't intuit the path to persuasive messaging; they learned these techniques. In "Cracking the Code," Hartmann shows progressives how to use them too. Drawing on his background as a psychotherapist, advertising executive, and host of a national radio talk show, he shares with readers the tools to become conscious about the ways people think, sort, and understand the world. More importantly, he shows them how to successfully communicate their values and ideas to others.
