Ameritopia: The Unmaking of Americaby Mark R. Levin
Synopses & Reviews
The man of system . . . is apt to be very wise in his own conceit; and is often so enamoured with the supposed beauty of his own ideal plan of government, that he cannot suffer the smallest deviation from any part of it. He goes on to establish it completely and in all its parts, without any regard either to the great interests or to the strong prejudices which may oppose it. He seems to imagine that he can arrange the different members of a great society with as much ease as the hand arranges the different pieces upon a chess-board. . . . —Adam Smith, The Theory of Moral Sentiments, 1759
IN THIS INTELLECTUALLY BRACING #1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER, leading conservative thinker Mark R. Levin draws astoundingly relevant parallels to the Obama era’s dangerous utopian ideals from Plato’s Republic, Thomas More’s Utopia, Thomas Hobbes’s Leviathan, Karl Marx’s Communist Manifesto, and from the critical works of John Locke, Charles Montesquieu, Alexis de Tocqueville, and other philosophical pioneers who brilliantly diagnosed the nature of man and government.
Mark R. Levin's "Liberty and Tyranny" made the most persuasive case for conservatism and against statism in a generation. In this most crucial time, this leading conservative thinker explores the psychology, motivations, and history of the utopian movement, its architects, and its modern day disciples - and how the individual and American society are being devoured by it.
In "Ameritopia: The Unmaking of America" Levin asks, what is this utopian force that both allures a free people and destroys them? In the end, Levin's message is clear: The American republic is in great peril. The people must now choose between utopianism or liberty.
#1 NY Times bestselling author Mark Levin explores the philosophical basis of America's foundations and the crisis that faces government today.
