The author shows how the Libertarian radical right, funded by the Koch Brothers, has been working to fundamentally alter the rules of democratic governance.  James McGill Buchanan, Noble prize winning political economist is the architect of the operation and with his colleagues for six decades has worked to alter every branch of government to disempower the majority -- and increase control of our government by the rich thereby changing democracy into oligarchy.
