I KNEW that civil rights, once won, could not be revoked. I KNEW that the reason the United States was the Land of Opportunity was because we were guaranteed a terrific, free public education and affordable access to higher learning at first-class public universities. I was wrong. Behind the scenes, shadowy groups of wealthy and powerful people with a sinister agenda were busy undermining everything that made it possible for a large middle class to enjoy a comfortable existence. One such group is ALEC.
