Blogger Profile: Marc Adler

I am a graduate of NYU’s Gallatin School of Individualized Study and will start law school next fall. My weekly columns offer a harsh critique of corporate capitalism and American empire. Most articles I write draw heavily from books written by authoritative sources, such as whistle-blowers and insiders. Other works of mine analyze bias/propaganda in the mass media, and some are interview-based stories designed to personalize and dramatize the horrifying costs of unfettered corporate capitalism. Check out my blog, Marcadler.org.
