Format: Hardcover
Well I didn't think that Liberty and Tyrrany could be beaten, but it has. Mark Levin has done it again, and in a way that even surpasses his previous works. With this book, I went back and watched past speeches by the president, the occupy movement, etc...and it's all right there. Almost word for word, the utopian rhetoric is broken down in this book and then recognized when the leftists speak. If you want to undersand that is this thing that makes people give up their personal freedoms, their individuality, and their hard-earned property for some idealized vision of the world that in practicality can never exist (because it goes against human nature, against the laws of economics, against everything rational), then this book will leave you with eyes wide open.

Format: Hardcover
This is one of the best books I've ever read. Mark Levin has written a masterpiece about history's masterminds and the timeless allure of their collectivist utopias....all of which have ended in misery for the millions ensnared in their attempt to create a more perfect man. It confirms my suspicions that the progressive-Marxist movement is up to no good, intent on destroying the very idea of America and intent on ringing the last ounce of individualism out of us all. This book gives you a clear understanding on how seemingly intelligent people could hold ideas so opposed to experience and common sense. It also explains the use of language to revise history and help the modern utopian- collectivist cause. This book should be studied in High-School by every student. (That's not going to happen!)

Ameritopia is the complement of, or the sequel to, Liberty and Tyranny. The flowers of liberty and the weeds of tyranny have their philosophic roots. That is the subject of Levin’s inquiry this time. This is about the origins of what was defined in the preceding book. Since the republic of America has already slipped into soft tyranny, an oppressive form of democracy, if not yet full-blown democratic despotism, these two questions bookend the volume: (1) “What kind of power both attracts a free people and destroys them?” (p. x); (2) “Have too many among us already surrendered or been conquered?” (p. 246.)

Oppressive power attracts people who want to be governed instead of represented (p. 209), even to the point of being told what kind of lightbulb they must use (p. 225), which is just one example of ‘administrative tyranny’ (p. 168.) They want, not equality under the law that recognizes one’s right to self-govern and to reap the fruit of one’s labor (pp. 8, 9), but equality of status through unconstitutional means that are used to plunder the gains of some in order to profit others (p. 121.) They support a tax plan that will ‘redistribute the wealth’ and ‘level the playing field’ (p. 103.) These people have been socially engineered, by reeducation that cuts ties with past customs, traditions, and beliefs (p. 229), to view America as a ‘land of haves and have-nots’ instead of the ‘land of opportunity’ (p. 210.) Communism can work, they argue; it just hasn’t been ‘faithfully executed’ yet (p. 77.) Tocqueville: “It is indeed difficult to conceive how men who have entirely given up the habit of self-government should succeed in making a proper choice of those by whom they are to be governed” (p. 178.) What kind of people will find themselves under the rule of Despotism?
