* Our summary is short, simple and pragmatic. It allows you to have the essential ideas of a big book in less than 30 minutes. As you read this summary, you will discover that America, by basing its way of life on fantasy, is today in the grip of madness. You will also discover that : the American dream is in fact an illusion; no one is more religious or superstitious than an American; americans are free to believe and invent whatever they want; americans deny reality to lock themselves into a world of illusions; the American way of life is, very often, dangerous. You have already heard about the American dream: the idea that everyone can succeed from scratch. The United States has built its history on the hope that anything is possible. Over time, that mindset has become a true industry. The media, religions, the pharmaceutical industry, invent new fabulous stories to sell. Think of Disney, Hollywood, Silicon Valley, Scientology, the Coachella Festival, Coca-Cola... Since the beginning of their history, they have used and abused magical thinking... to the point where they no longer really distinguish the border between fiction and reality. That's how Donald Trump's fakes news and lies arrive. Of all the regions of the world, America is the one with the most superstitious inhabitants. Americans live in a world of illusions and are completely disconnected from reality. They are convinced of the truthfulness of a number of beliefs that probably seem insane to you. Are you ready to dive behind the scenes of the crazy and unique history of Americans? *Buy now the summary of this book for the modest price of a cup of coffee!
