Ameritopia: the Unmaking of America by Mark R Levin

Post  Bookworm on Wed Nov 14, 2012 12:54 am

The fundamental transformation of America is not a phenomenon devised by the current administration. Utopian society is a concept first promulgated by Plato in his Republic in 380 BCE, further expounded in Thomas More's Utopia and Thomas Hobbes's Leviathan, and culminating with Karl Marx's Communist Manifesto in 1848.
The motivation of all tomes was the extension of the perfect society through radical egalitarianism in order to create the all-powerful state, with the power confined to the controlling elites, I.e., Barack Obama. In order to complete this nefarious enterprise, the masses have to be subjugated to the state. The beauty of controlled society is the equal sharing of misery.
The "Great One," Dr Levin, meticulously lays out the principles of all utopian works and how America is evolving into the Obamaian state.
Fortunately, the author counters with John Locke and The Nature of Man, followed by the wisdom of Charles Montesquieu and Alexis de Tocqueville.

"The "Great One," Dr Levin, meticulously lays out the principles of all utopian works" So...this is a book about books written about utopian societies?
