This is a great movie, and also made a great book. Wolf basically goes over the 10 steps every would-be dictator implements to close down an open and free society. Very scary stuff, especially when she went into the burning of the Reichstag, the "disappearances" of journalists, and the putting of people on the "watch list." Highly recommended movie.
There was an Amazon reviewer that said this was nothing but "liberal drivel." I completely disagree. It is not right-wing nor left-wing. Those things don't matter...they are only there to blind us from the truth, methods of control put in place so that Americans will bicker and argue with each other, pitting brother against brother. For what it's worth, it is a warning, not only to the "young patriot" described in the title of the book, but to all people living in the U.S. Dictatorial government is coming - count on it. This will give you a historical perspective on what happens when people don't intervene in time and put a halt to fascism.
