“Most people in America have gotten addicted to various things,” says Walter Mosley, author of the new book, Twelve Steps Toward Political Revelation. Joining MSNBC’s Morning Joe, Mosley argues that Americans now need to change themselves in order to make this country a better place. He suggests that citizens know better—we know that we are not all middle class and that capitalism isn’t really democracy. But if we know these things about America, why don’t we take the time to grapple with the major dilemmas facing our society?
