For the first time since the Nixon era, Americans have reason to doubt the future - or even the presence - of democracy. We live in a society where government conspires with big business and big evangelism; where ideologues and religious zealots attack logic and the scientific method; and where the ruling party encourages xenophobic nationalism based on irrational, manufactured fear. The party in power seems to seek a perpetual state of war to hold on to power, and they are willing to lie, cheat, and steal to achieve their ends. The question must be asked; Are we headed toward the end of American democracy? Sinclair Lewis depicted authoritarianism American-style in his sardonically titled dystopian novel 'It can't happen here', published in 1935. Joe Conason argues that it can happen here - and a select group of extremely powerful right-wing ideologues are driving us ever closer to the precipice. In this compelling, impassioned, yet rational and fact-based look at the state of the nation, Conason shows how and why America has been wrenched away from its founding principles and is being dragged toward authoritarianism.
