Storyline

The End of America details the ten steps a country takes when it slides toward fascism. It's not a "lefty"tot tome, rather a historical look at trends in once-functioning democracies from modern history that are being repeated in our country today. It gives any reader (or viewer of the lecture) a much-needed history lesson and constitutional refresher. Most importantly, it puts the recent gradual loss of civil liberties in the U.S. in a historical context. The average American might not be alarmed at AT&T selling our private information to the Bush administration, but when this action is seen as part of a larger series of erosions and events, a pattern emerges with unfortunate consequences that become disturbingly clear.

Quotes

Naomi Wolf: The great dictators learn from one another what was essentially a blueprint for closing down an open society; and then it became clear to me that this blueprint is simple. It consists of ten steps. Ten clear steps. Then what became chillingly clear to me is that these ten steps are in place in America today.

Pure Leftist Crap..
25 February 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

More of the liberal bias that's permeating our culture with an "anything goes thinking" mentality. Don't waste your time on this one. It's an absolute attack on the previous administration and highlights minor faults and absolutely reaches for the stars in trying to compare that to fascism and Hitler. Sure, it'll get you talking, talking about how much propaganda is poured into this drivel that is nothing more than a weak attempt to brainwash the weak minded and our youth. This shouldn't be described as a documentary, more like an opinion. While, it is true that the democratic congress and democratic president is more like a socialist regime, the Bush administration is nothing like that nor will it be viewed in history like that.

Sometimes, taking out the garbage and cleaning the cat box is more enjoyable than watching a movie.
