Before long he too begins to view the world through its opportunistic eyes, and his choices begin to manifest themselves physically.Driven by both fear and a growing taste for wealth and power, an increasingly cold and ruthless Cogh finds himself torn between following a fading inner voice that he cannot fully silence, and an outer persona that urges him to become the corporate ideal.A dark satire and novel in verse, Cogh and the Machine takes an unblinking look at the malignant effects of today’s profit-above-all corporate culture on every aspect of 21st Century America, and sheds a bright light on the hidden underpinnings of our current state.From the disempowerment of the middle class to economic inequality by design- from the privatization of education and Common Cores deliberate homogenization of our children to the final and absolute corruption of our political system, this childrens book for adults reveals how we got to where we are today – and where we just might be going next.
