Epilogue: Greek Theater-Mario Savio and the Socratic Quest.
Summary Scott marshals convincing evidence for an American deep state, institutionalized in non-accountable intelligence agencies and private corporations. When the influence of Wall Street and international oil are added, the author argues that these powerful interests form a supranational state, repeatedly at odds with U.S. policies and interests.
