You've started unplugging
Now you're ready to take the next step
The definitive guide to unplugging will be released soon
Have you ever wondered why more people struggle to make ends meet, even when the economy is “booming”? Why no matter who is elected president or which party controls Congress, we never solve our biggest problems? Why after coming together to elect a black president, black people and white people seem more divided than ever? The answers to these questions are connected in ways most people would never imagine — and my book, explains how and why.
Once upon a time, I was plugged in. I was a poster child for the American Dream. I went to the best schools, worked hard, and jumped through the "right" hoops. I believed what I was told and trusted that the people I voted for.
But nine years ago, I realized my world was spinning out of control. Corruption, economic uncertainty, misinformation and racial division consumed headlines. Career stress and urban life were overwhelming me. So I quit my job as an entertainment lawyer in L.A. and escaped to Montana. The “red” wilderness might be the last place you’d expect a gay, black woman to land in Trump’s America, but that’s where I had an epiphany. I wasn’t living in the world I had convinced myself I lived in.
Unplug documents my eye-opening journey as I discovered how distortions in our reality keep us from seeing the way our government, economy, and media really function and what we have in common with each other. Using my personal experiences and real world examples, Unplug will help you see the "big picture" that's rapidly unfolding around us: how our government, media, and other institutions have distorted our collective reality and blinded us to the true source of the biggest problems we face, allowing a powerful few to control and exploit us.
But it's not too late to turn things around. We have the power to begin the world over again. All we have to do is unplug from our distorted reality.
