About the Book
Like the great F.A. Hayek, I have dedicated this book to the forces that are leading us on the road to serfdom with a slight twist for the reality of America in the early 21st Century: To the community organizers of all parties. Hayek’s socialists (who he dedicated his classic work to in Road to Serfdom) of the mid 20th century have morphed into benign sounding names such as community organizers, but ultimately their goal for a collectivist utopia is essentially the same as their Marxist, Fascist friends hiding behind a religion, and socialist brothers. For these elitists and Philosopher Kings, individuals are not smart enough to run their own government, so it is up to the wise community organizing leaders and a big centralized government to plan and “to organize” for the helpless ignorant masses, to guide them, and as one well known successful politician put it, help direct the poor misguided fools who sadly still manage to “cling to their guns and religion”. Ultimately, I am optimistic that America will survive this onslaught of Statism and Collectivism and will once again become a beacon of freedom for a world where too many individuals are in chains, to give them real hope that they too might one day live where individual freedom and opportunity are available to all, where laws and moral order are derived from God and not man or any group of men.
Note to Mark Levin. I am a great admirer of your talk show, your “take no prisoners” style and your excellent Conservative Manifesto – Liberty and Tyranny. However, I do have one bone to pick with you and it centers around your disdain for the term “Middle Class”. I follow your point of view that Americans should not participate in “class” warfare of any kind, but until someone comes up with a better term to describe the great backbone of this country that is neither rich nor poor I will continue to use it. I will gladly change all my chapter headings if you or someone else can come up with a better descriptive term.
Note: Every week or so there will be a new question for comment on the author’s premise that America is on the road to serfdom. Arguments pro and con are encouraged. Chapters will be posted monthly starting in October until the entire book is available on line. For those who can not wait – a download of the first revision of the book is available free of charge by going to the Contact Us and Download Book Tab.
