The target audience for this memoir is the generation of Americans who grew up after World War II -- the nearly 100 million baby boomers who have lived through the changes that are obvious to all of them.
The America that Gordon Black grew up in was a land of economic opportunity, a democracy that worked most of the time for most of the people, and a culture that generously rewarded hard work, decency, kindness and imagination. Now in his 60's, Gordon Black's American has degenerated into a society of greater and greater inequality, a democracy that today functions only for the powerful and the connected, and a culture that has embraced greed, fatalism, negativity and conformity - a culture that rewards who you know more than what you are. . The Corn Is Forever is one man's story of overcoming tremendous odds to succeed, only to see the things he loved the most about his country taken from his children and grandchildren. The book is an appeal to Americans to take back what is rightfully theirs, and to restore our heritage of freedom and opportunity to our children and grandchildren.
