About Mark Levin’s new book ‘Ameritopia’

17 Jan

The title is actually ‘Ameritopia: The unmaking of America’

I downloaded it onto my Nook reader today and just now started reading it.  The Nook is a wonderful device, don’t get me wrong, and it allows one to highlight passages, make notes and all that. And to download and read a book in an instant.

But this book is so consequential, the narrative for the dissembling of Obama and the Democrats, a book that will rise to prominence with Locke, Tocqueville, Hayek and other great thinkers, that I have to abandon Nook and go get a hard copy tomorrow so that I can highlight it, make notes, dog ear it, and make it a part of my dead tree library.

It’s the Holy Bible of modern day conservatism and reveals the folly of the utopianist religion.

This is the sort of book where you read a sentence.  Re-read the sentence.  Ponder that sentence.  Then read it again and ponder some more.  If one does that there is not a single philosophical discussion that can arise in any circumstance that the reader cannot eviscerate. 

And I’m still on Chapter One.

Uptopianism is regressive, irrational and pre-Enlightenment.  It robs society of opinions and ideas that may be beneficial to the human condition, now and in the future.

Levin’s ‘Men in Black’ was terrific, and I still reference back to it.

‘Liberty and Tyranny’ WAS the manifesto of the Tea Party movement and totally rocks!

Ameritopia is in a class of its own.

Buy more than one copy so that you can convince your liberal friends that they’re buying into national tragedy if they support the utopian future proposed by this President.  A future where the individual must conform to the goals of the state.

Gird thy loins, America, and prepare for battle.  Levin provides the sword of truth and the inspiration to vanquish thine enemy.  And make no mistake about it.  Liberal utopianism is thine enemy.

    The Fairfax County public library does not list it in their catalog yet. No doubt they will end up with one copy for the whole system once it comes out in paperback, but that is how things are in the People’s Republic of Fairfax.

    I could take him seriously if he weren’t on the radio….he’s boorish on air.

      He doesn’t suffer fools and he’s mostly talking about fools when discussing the world of politics. I LOVE IT when he takes off the gloves. Call it ‘boorish’ if you want. Doesn’t bother me one bit.

    Oh I am so glad that you said you read and reread the lines. I finally made it to part 2, the Locke part. I was feeling so stupid trying to read the archaic language, but Mark interjected just enough to keep me going. It’s kind of like reading Shakespeare, it requires a bit of translation, but then the more you read it the more you get the cadence and understand. This applies to EVERYTHING that is going on right now, utopian promises whose fruits are wayy out into the future. Mark as usual is right on.

      It is a heavy read Gayle, but I’m making my way through it just like you. I ripped through Liberty and Tyranny but this book goes into the depths of political thought from Plato to More’s Leviathan to Karl Marx and beyond.

      You’re up to Locke? Good for you! I’m still mired in Marx.

        Mired in Marx, isn’t it mindnumbing? lol I’ts a breath of fresh air once you get to Locke, but then it kind of inspires you to revolution which is a little scary. When you realize how much of our freedom we’ve just ceded away to the government….ugh Hey, I gave away another copy of the book today, to my realtor. Told her to pass it on!

    Thanks for spreading the word, Gayle!
