"The untold story behind the most shocking political upheaval in the country. For more than a century, Wisconsin has been known nationwide for its progressive ideas and government. It famously served as a "laboratory of democracy," a cradle of the labor and environmental movements, and birthplace of the Wisconsin Idea, which championed expertise in the service of the common good. But following a Republican sweep of the state's government in 2010, Wisconsin's political heritage was overturned, and the state went Republican for the first time in three decades in the 2016 presidential election, elevating Donald J. Trump to the presidency. The Fall of Wisconsin is a deeply reported, searing account of how the state's progressive tradition was undone and turned into a model for national conservatives bent on remaking the country. Dan Kaufman, a Wisconsin native who has been covering the story for several years, traces the history of progressivism that made Wisconsin so widely admired, from the work of celebrated politicians like Robert "Fighting Bob" La Follette and Gaylord Nelson, to local traditions like Milwaukee's "sewer socialism," to the conservationist ideas of Aldo Leopold and the state's Native American tribes. Kaufman reveals how the "divide-and-conquer" strategy of Governor Scott Walker and his allies pitted Wisconsin's citizens against one another so powerful corporations and wealthy donors could effectively take control of state government. As a result, laws protecting voting rights, labor unions, the environment, and public education were rapidly dismantled."--Provided by publisher.… (mere)

This book is frightening and important to understand. While there are several factors involved, including the weakening of Union solidarity, or Union based solidarity, as well as gerrymandering and tearing down of State institutions that worked for the common good, I believe the most important is manufacturing of consent, which most people are not aware of, at least regarding ALEC and the legislative pairing with conservative think tanks drafting deliberately obfuscated model bills . This is where the importance of critical thinking, and truly Democratic access by all citizens to all lawmakers is key. ( )

I try to stay current on U.S. politics, however depressing it is and I try to keep an eye on our neighboring state, to the north, but this excellent look at Wisconsin politics, caught me by surprise and I realized how little I knew about how progressive the Badger State has been, over the last 2 centuries. It is a fascinating, at times horrifying, impeccably well-researched, look at the past and current political environment, of the good ole US of A. Highly recommended. ( )
