By Kurt Eichenwald

In his new book, What's Wrong With Right Now?, author and activist Kurt Eichenwald argues that the world is in a state of crisis and that we need to take action to fix it. Eichenwald writes about the rise of authoritarianism, the decline of democracy, the widening gap between rich and poor, and the threat of climate change. He argues that we need to work together to create a more just and equitable world.

Eichenwald's book is a wake-up call for all of us. He writes with passion and urgency about the challenges facing our world, but he also offers hope. He believes that we can still turn things around, but only if we act now.

What's Wrong With Right Now? is an essential read for anyone who cares about the future of our planet. It is a book that will challenge your assumptions and make you think about the world in a new way. It is a book that will inspire you to take action and make a difference.

The Rise of Authoritarianism

One of the most pressing challenges facing our world today is the rise of authoritarianism. In recent years, we have seen a number of countries around the world turn to authoritarian leaders. These leaders have rolled back democratic freedoms, cracked down on dissent, and consolidated their power. The rise of authoritarianism is a threat to democracy and human rights around the world.

There are a number of factors that have contributed to the rise of authoritarianism. One factor is the global economic crisis. The crisis has led to widespread unemployment and economic hardship, which has made people more vulnerable to the appeals of authoritarian leaders. Another factor is the decline of democracy. In many countries, democratic institutions have been weakened by corruption, inequality, and political polarization. This has made it easier for authoritarian leaders to come to power.

The rise of authoritarianism is a serious threat to our world. It is a threat to democracy, human rights, and peace. We need to work together to stop the spread of authoritarianism and to promote democracy around the world.

The Decline of Democracy

Another major challenge facing our world today is the decline of democracy. In recent years, we have seen a number of countries around the world slide from democracy to authoritarianism. This is a worrying trend, as democracy is the best way to protect human rights and ensure that all citizens have a voice in how their country is run.

There are a number of factors that have contributed to the decline of democracy. One factor is the rise of populism. Populist leaders often appeal to people's fears and prejudices, and they promise simple solutions to complex problems. This can be very appealing to voters who are frustrated with the status quo.

Another factor that has contributed to the decline of democracy is the growth of inequality. Inequality can lead to social unrest and political instability, which can make it difficult for democracies to function effectively.

The decline of democracy is a serious threat to our world. It is a threat to human rights, peace, and prosperity. We need to work together to protect democracy and to promote democratic values around the world.

The Widening Gap Between Rich and Poor

Another major challenge facing our world today is the widening gap between rich and poor. In recent years, the rich have gotten richer and the poor have gotten poorer. This is a trend that is unsustainable, as it can lead to social unrest and political instability.

There are a number of factors that have contributed to the widening gap between rich and poor. One factor is the globalization of the economy. Globalization has led to increased competition for jobs, which has driven down wages. Another factor is the rise of technology. Technology has automated many jobs, which has also led to job losses. The widening gap between rich and poor is a serious threat to our world. It is a threat to social justice, economic stability, and peace. We need to work together to reduce inequality and to create a more just and equitable world.

The Threat of Climate Change

Another major challenge facing our world today is the threat of climate change. Climate change is caused by the release of greenhouse gases into the atmosphere, which trap heat and cause the planet to warm. The effects of climate change are already being felt around the world, in the form of rising sea levels, more extreme weather events, and changing plant and animal life.

The threat of climate change is real and it is urgent. We need to take action now to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and to mitigate the effects of climate change.

There are a number of things that we can do to address the threat of climate change. We can invest in renewable energy, we can reduce our reliance on fossil fuels, and we can change our lifestyles to reduce our carbon footprint. We also need to work together to create a global agreement on climate change that will reduce greenhouse gas emissions and help to mitigate the effects of climate change.

What Can We Do?

The challenges facing our world today are daunting, but they are not insurmountable. We need to work together to create a more just and equitable world. We need to work together to protect democracy and human rights. We need to work together to reduce inequality. We need to work together to address the threat of climate change. Together, we can build a better future for all.

Here are some things that you can do to make a difference:

  • Get involved in politics. Vote in elections and support candidates who share your values.
  • Support organizations that are working to make the world a better place.
  • Live your life in a way that is consistent with your values. Make choices that are good for the environment and for society.

Together, we can create a more just and equitable world. Together, we can protect democracy and human rights. Together, we can reduce inequality. Together, we can address the threat of climate change. Together, we can build a better future for all.
