WC's Review:  The fundamental transformation of America is not a phenomenon devised by this current administration. Utopian society is a concept first promulgated by Plato in his Republic in 380 BCE, further expounded in Thomas More's Utopia and Thomas Hobbes's Leviathan, and culminated with Karl Marx's Communist Manifesto in 1848.

The motivation of all tomes was the extension of the perfect society through radical egalitarianism in order to create the all-powerful state, with the authority confined to the controlling elites, i.e., Barack Obama and his gang of appointed thugs. In order to complete this nefarious enterprise, the masses have to be subjugated to the state, largely through the mind-numbing conditioning in our compulsory school system. The inherent virtue of controlled society, as Churchill said, is the equal sharing of misery.

The "Great One," Dr Levin, meticulously lays out the principles of these celebrated utopian works and how America is evolving into the Obamaian state through the forced malleability of our low-informed society.

Fortunately, the author counters with John Locke and The Nature of Man, followed by the wisdom of Charles Montesquieu and Alexis de Tocqueville. And fortunately for America, Jefferson, Franklin, John Quincy Adams, and later, Andrew Jackson, endorsed individual human rights and liberty while scorning the onus of collective governme
This book belongs on the shelves of all clear thinking Americans.
