The American society is in danger, and now is the time for Americans to stand up for Liberty, and the vision of our founding fathers. Levins book encourages Americans to stand up for liberty.

Dr. R. Levin is a critically acclaimed, nationally syndicated radio talk show how. Dr. Levin has server as president of Landmark Legal Foundation for more than 2 years. Levin is a licensed attorney and once served in the cabinet of President Ronald Regan. He received his B.A. from Temple Univeristy and a J.D from Temple University School of Law.

Ameritopia: The Unmaking of American

We all would agree with Levin’s analysis in which he concludes that America’s success is based on the results of our philosophy of liberty, and our resistance to tyranny. Succumbing to such a fate would ultimately lead to the “intellectual bankruptcy and dishonesty” which will ultimately lead to the destruction of America. Levin discusses this in detail during the first part of Ameritopia, in which he reviews historical figures such as Thomas More, Plato, and Karl Marx. His emphasis is to illustrate the methods, and similarities in which each promoted their values and their idea of an ideal society and how those ideals correlate to tyranny. The overbearing theme for each ideal society included centralized government, in which manipulates the citizens through persuasion, mistruths, and coercion.

In the second part of Ameritopia Levin illustrates how famous individuals such as john Locke, Charles de Montesquie, and Alex de Tocqueville introduced liberty to counter tyranny and it’s subsequent results. He stressed the importance of autonomy, free-will, God given right, and the pursuit of happiness to combat tyranny.

In closing, he urges American to resist a Utopian tyrant ridden society and return to a culture of liberty.

Ameritopia is truly a must read for every citizen of this nation, and should be a requirement in every high school in the country. Ameritopia is a refreshing looking at a method of thinking which is longing to be resurrected.

      Thanks for responding back and I agree, however, as you state, an ideally perfect place is relative to the individual. Can I ask you one question? Do you really think a Utopia is possible? Or is it no more than a dream?
