In his acclaimed #1 New York Times bestseller, Mark R. Levin explores the psychology, motivations, and history of the utopian movement, its architects—the Founding Fathers, and its modern-day disciples—and how the individual and American society are being devoured by it. Levin asks, what is this utopian force that both allures a free people and destroys them? Levin digs deep into the past and draws astoundingly relevant parallels to contemporary America from Plato’s Republic, Thomas More’s Utopia, Thomas Hobbes’s Leviathan, and Karl Marx’s Communist Manifesto, as well as 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. As Levin meticulously pursues his subject, the reader joins him in an enlightening and compelling journey. And in the end, Levin’s message is clear: the American republic is in great peril. The people must now choose between utopianism or liberty. President Ronald Reagan warned, “freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction.” Levin agrees, and with Ameritopia, delivers another modern political classic, an indispensable guide for America in our time and in the future.

War and crime are relics of the past. Violence and non-tolerance have been bred out of the population. How? As a result of too much god-play, men have all but wiped themselves off the face of the planet. Women have inherited the Earth. But the species must carry on... Daily monotony and curiosity about historic tales of romance overwhelm inexperienced and mannerly researcher Evelyn Knight. Consequently, she risks the comfortable life she's always known and ventures into one of the last strongholds of men, tucked into the foothills of Colorado: The Rock. Inside, Eve is pushed to the breaking point when confronted with everything she has been missing on the outside: aggression, betrayal, duplicity, and could it be... love? Not the kind of love portrayed in the Austen novels she grew up with... something more raw and incalculable. Ameritopia defies gender roles and the status quo in a way that just might help you rediscover life (and love) with new hope.

America in 2075 has achieved a state of Utopia. Following the political coup-d'état of 2025 by the “Militant Moderates”, led by the irascible and Machiavellian Johannes Schmitt, America resolved all of its early 21st Century social and economic issues: gay marriage, health care, abortion, immigration, welfare, education, and debt. With the elimination of liberal and conservative zealots and through the careful measurement of student data in the high schools, the educational system works with federal government forces to ensure that the perfectly administered economy offers a Brave New World-esque supply of workers, intellects, technicians, immigrants and other cogs in the American economic engine. Follow the coming of age of two young outstanding teachers, Murray Mallory Moore and Jacob Wilde, who upon their recent nomination to the Academy of Principals, find that during their training, they will enter a secret society which works in conjunction with Homeland Security to ensure the smooth operation of America's Utopian society by extending that usage of educational data to hunt down the pariah students of America in the most Orwellian manner. As Moore and Wilde are exposed to the dark underbelly of America's perceived idyllic state—student assassinations—set up by Senator Schmitt's Great Compromise of 2025, a moral crevasse explodes between Moore and Wilde as they come to grips with this Swiftian world where logos takes precedence over pathos. Follow Murray Mallory Moore and Jacob Wilde's strange rite-of-passage as the Department of Homeland Security conducts bizarre team-building skills and enigmatic psyche tests regarding prospective teachers' respective dogmas. Discover the benevolently heinous events—terrorist attacks, political murder, citizenship revocation, institutionalized deportations, and student assassination—which are utilized to maintain this terrible beauty that has become Ameritopia. Travel from America's Mid-West town of Cincinnati to the Grand Canyon back to Washington D.C. and then, for the final test, the island of Guam, a penal colony, where America sends its societal degenerates for the remainder of their lives. Steeped with literary and historical references, inundated with SAT/ACT preparatory vocabulary, and sprinkled with copious literary allusions, this politically castigating novel which targets the Millennial Generation and has been stylistically composed to utilize the crafts of Orwell, Huxley, Swift, Joyce, Hardy, and Heinlein in hopes of being taught in America's high schools, begs the young adults of the United States to wrestle with the political conundrums of their generation and asks how far down a road of dystopian practices should America go in order to achieve Utopia.

Americanizing Britain

How did Great Britain, which entered the twentieth century as a dominant empire, reinvent itself in reaction to its fears and fantasies about the United States? Investigating the anxieties caused by the invasion of American culture-from jazz to Ford motorcars to Hollywood films-during the first half of the twentieth century, Genevieve Abravanel theorizes the rise of the American Entertainment Empire as a new style of imperialism that threatened Britain's own. In the early twentieth century, the United States excited a range of utopian and dystopian energies in Britain. Authors who might ordinarily seem to have little in common-H.G. Wells, Aldous Huxley, and Virginia Woolf-began to imagine Britain's future through America. Abravanel explores how these novelists fashioned transatlantic fictions as a response to the encroaching presence of Uncle Sam. She then turns her attention to the arrival of jazz after World War I, showing how a range of writers, from Elizabeth Bowen to W.H. Auden, deployed the new music as a metaphor for the modernization of England. The global phenomenon of Hollywood film proved even more menacing than the jazz craze, prompting nostalgia for English folk culture and a lament for Britain's literary heritage. Abravanel then refracts British debates about America through the writing of two key cultural critics: F.R. Leavis and T.S. Eliot. In so doing, she demonstrates the interdependencies of some of the most cherished categories of literary study-language, nation, and artistic value-by situating the high-low debates within a transatlantic framework.

Mark R. Levin has made the case, in numerous bestselling books that the principles undergirding our society and governmental system are unraveling. In The Liberty Amendments, he turns to the founding fathers and the constitution itself for guidance in restoring the American republic. The delegates to the 1787 Constitutional Convention and the delegates to each state’s ratification convention foresaw a time when the Federal government might breach the Constitution’s limits and begin oppressing the people. Agencies such as the IRS and EPA and programs such as Obamacare demonstrate that the Framers’ fear was prescient. Therefore, the Framers provided two methods for amending the Constitution. The second was intended for our current circumstances—empowering the states to bypass Congress and call a convention for the purpose of amending the Constitution. Levin argues that we, the people, can avoid a perilous outcome by seeking recourse, using the method called for in the Constitution itself. The Framers adopted ten constitutional amendments, called the Bill of Rights, that would preserve individual rights and state authority. Levin lays forth eleven specific prescriptions for restoring our founding principles, ones that are consistent with the Framers’ design. His proposals—such as term limits for members of Congress and Supreme Court justices and limits on federal taxing and spending—are pure common sense, ideas shared by many. They draw on the wisdom of the Founding Fathers—including James Madison, Benjamin Franklin, Thomas Jefferson, and numerous lesser-known but crucially important men—in their content and in the method for applying them to the current state of the nation. Now is the time for the American people to take the first step toward reclaiming what belongs to them. The task is daunting, but it is imperative if we are to be truly free.

What is the problem? Mark Levin explains: "More and more decisions are made by masterminds and their experts, (politicians, judges and bureaucrats), who substitute their self-serving and dogmatic judgments ... for the individual's self-interests and best interests" (Ameritopia, 2012). The Cognoscenti are the ruling political class (the masterminds and experts) who think they know better than everyone else. They must be voted out and replaced with constitutional conservatives. If not, the alternative is a path to an inevitable serfdom.

The grave is dug, the headstone carved, the hearse idling out front. A once-potent political and cultural scourge of our time, Liberalism, is breathing its last?and loudest?breaths. In this provocative postmortem, R. Emmett Tyrrell, Jr. traces the dubious rise and inevitable fall of the deeply flawed Liberal-Progressive movement, which has culminated in the nation's first stealth socialist, President Barack Obama?the unwitting pallbearer for American Liberalism. While exposing this nonsensical worldview, Tyrrell also winsomely reaffirms the timeless values Liberalism has endeavored to undermine: free enterprise, personal liberty, limited government, empiricism, reason, and common sense. Ultimately, Tyrrell welcomes conservatives, moderates, independents, and the heretofore apolitical to step forward at this crucial juncture, and take the final steps necessary to administer Liberalism's last rites. "From Harry Truman to Ed Koch to McGovern, Liberalism has been in decline. With Obama, Liberalism is dead. Now comes Crony Capitalism. This is a hilarious and profound book?especially because Tyrrell sees the value of Fox News nd Talk Radio." ?Sean Hannity, author of Conservative Victory, and radio host of The Sean Hannity Show and Fox News Channel's Hannity. "R. Emmett Tyrrell . . . chronicles with growing joyfulness the high points of Liberalism's demise until we get to 2010 and Liberalism's lurch into the grave. . . A wonderful read and a fitting send-off to a very dreary ideology." ?Mark Levin, host of The Mark Levin Radio Show and author of the bestsellers Liberty and Tyranny and Ameritopia "The Death of Liberalism is a dashing, sharp, well-argued and succinct tract for the times. Mr. Tyrrell is a controversialist of stature, a polemicist of robust energy and a man who knows how to present his case with power and precision."?Paul Johnson, author of Modern Times, Intellectuals, and A History of the American People
