"With Liberty and Justice for Some: How the Law is Used to Destroy Equality and Protect the Powerful"

Glenn Greenwald

About the Program

Former constitutional rights lawyer, Glenn Greenwald contends that the United States has a two-tiered judicial system, one for the "haves" and one for the "have-nots."  Mr. Greenwald presents his argument by tracing the evolution of judicial inequality, from President Richard Nixon's pardon for the Watergate scandal to what the authors deems were economic and political crimes committed during the George W. Bush administration.  The author posits that both political parties and the media are culpable for creating an unequal judicial system.  Glenn Greenwald presents his thoughts in conversation with political theorist, Noam Chomsky at the Brattle Theatre in Cambridge, Massachusetts.
