Editorial Reviews

Review

You will be shocked and disturbed by this book. Most Americans reject outright any comparison of post 9/11 America with the fascism and totalitarianism of Nazi Germany or Pinochet s Chile. Sadly, the parallels and similarities, what Wolf calls the echoes between those societies and America today, are all too compelling. --Michael Ratner, Center for Constitutional Rights

This latest offering from best-selling author Wolf, The Beauty Myth, is a harbinger of an age that may finally see the patriarchal realm of political discourse usurped. Here is Wolf s compellingly and cogently argued political argument for civil rights, not women s rights... Her chapters outline the Ten Steps to Fascism citing historical corollaries (as well as the pigs in Orwell s Animal Farm), with headings like Invoke an External and Internal Threat, Establish Secret Prisons, and Target Key Individuals. ... In other words, fascism can exist without dictatorship. Highly recommended for all collections. --Theresa Kintz, Wilkes Univ., Wilkes-Barre, PA, Library Journal

Naomi Wolf s End of America is a vivid, urgent, mandatory wake-up call that addresses momentous issues of tyranny, democracy, and survival. --Blanche Wiesen Cook, author of the three-volume Eleanor Roosevelt

Product Description

Along with the rest of America, best-selling author and feminist Naomi Wolf was overwhelmed by the swell of conflicting information and the sudden march to war after 9/11. Wolf looked to history to help her understand the dramatic changes she believed she was witnessing, and discovered the disturbing similarities between post-9/11 US policy and that of historically fascist regimes such as Mussolini's Italy and Hitler's Germany. Wolf authored her next book, THE END OF AMERICA, which demonstrated that the United States was on a remarkably certain path toward ending democracy. Taking the thesis of her book to the streets, Wolf set out on a national tour to discuss the evolution of America from a functional democracy into a closed, fear-driven society with a terrifying absence of due process. In this profound and eye-opening film, Award-winning veteran documentarians Ricki Stern and Annie Sundberg (THE DEVIL CAME ON HORSEBACK, THE TRIALS OF DARRYL HUNT) accompany Wolf as she discusses America's dangerous passage towards becoming a society of fear and surveillance, and expresses her plea to restore our nation's most cherished values.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Real Eye Opener January 23, 2009
By MuzaK
Format:DVD
This movie is no joke. It is a documentary about how this past administration have abused their power and have engaged in slowly taking away our rights and liberties. After seeing this film, you will want to start taking action and fight for your rights immediately after the credits. It is almost unbelievable to witness some of the horrifying actions legal and physical that this past administration has performed against citizens of America and innocent individuals across the world. No matter what political slant you may be, I highly recommend purchasing this dvd and spreading the word about these obscenities.

4.0 out of 5 stars Just as timely now December 21, 2010
Format:DVD
I really thought President Obama would substantially dismantle the Bush rush to what will may well end up as a right wing dictatorship, just as this movie portends. Hasn't happened. Not one bit. If not Mr. Obama, then whom? One thing's certain. Left to drift, with our politicians kicking almost every can down almost every road and all the decisions being made behind closed doors as faits accompli, we the people are left adrift and bereft. So we edge towards more disorganization, more fear and therefore a great chance of the end of our civilized, educated, democratic and functional society. As she said, this is not a "Left vs. Right" situation. This is about the fabric of culture itself. Scary stuff.

My only criticism of the documentary is that there is perhaps too much stage time and not quite enough field work. But the points are well made nonetheless.

5.0 out of 5 stars More than mere "liberal commentary." March 31, 2010
Format:DVD
This is a great movie, and also made a great book. Wolf basically goes over the 10 steps every would-be dictator implements to close down an open and free society. Very scary stuff, especially when she went into the burning of the Reichstag, the "disappearances" of journalists, and the putting of people on the "watch list." Highly recommended movie.
There was an Amazon reviewer that said this was nothing but "liberal drivel." I completely disagree. It is not right-wing nor left-wing. Those things don't matter...they are only there to blind us from the truth, methods of control put in place so that Americans will bicker and argue with each other, pitting brother against brother. For what it's worth, it is a warning, not only to the "young patriot" described in the title of the book, but to all people living in the U.S. Dictatorial government is coming - count on it. This will give you a historical perspective on what happens when people don't intervene in time and put a halt to fascism.

5.0 out of 5 stars Enlightening, yet Frighteningly True January 23, 2009
By MuzaK
Format:DVD
I recently saw the screening of Naomi Wolf's "The End of America" and if I wasn't already frustrated enough with this past administration this film put me over the edge. This documentary depicts how Bush, Cheney, and many others of the past administration have abused their power,taken away many of our liberties, and deceived the citizens of our nation. The film is done very well and depicts some horrific images that arouse the senses, yet also includes a few humorous clips that show the ridiculousness of our ex-president, George W. Bush, and his administration. I highly recommend this movie to those that care about your freedoms and rights as a citizen of this country, no matter what political standpoint.

5.0 out of 5 stars A POWERFUL & FRIGHTENING BOOK October 23, 2008
By Sept
Format:DVD
This was one of those books that I knew was going to upset me but I had to read it. Ms. Wolf makes a strong case that we are at the brink of losing our democracy; it is justifiable to compare the current neo-conservative movement in America to past repressive regimes. Some of her points:

Black Water, the vigilante group with billions of dollars in their war chest has the ability to take down third world governments and yet owes no allegiance to our constitution.

Countless laws have been broken by our White House and yet no one is held accountable (illegal wire tapping of Americans; misleading Americans into the Iraqi war; torture; outing a CIA agent for political gain; etc.)

Corporations controlling all our media and therefore the flow of information "We The People" receive.

The tampering of our free elections (voter machine fraud, the Supreme Court illegally over riding our democracy and appointing George Bush President; the selective removal of Americans from voting lists; etc.)

Ms. Wolf's point is that these attacks are done boldly and deliberatly to frighten and intimidate Americans into doing nothing.

I found this book to be most terrifying because most Americans aren't even aware that there is a problem. There is a deliberate move in this country to wipe out middle class America (unaffordable educatuion, the end of pensions, the attempt of President Bush to convince Americans that Social Security is bad; unaffordable health insurance, etc.) I hope this DVD release acts as a wake up call to all Americans.

5.0 out of 5 stars Straightforward and Chilling January 24, 2009
Format:DVD
From my point of view as a political activist and a writer who has battled the paranoia of the Bush Administration and the zeitgeist that accompanied it, this is a balanced and intelligent portrayal of a very powerful social phenomena - suppression of dissent.

1.0 out of 5 stars Uses fear to mislead and dumb people down April 24, 2013
By Enigma
Format:DVD
I have never watched a documentary where fear is such a motivating factor. Science tell us that fear of the unknown, or fear someone or something's that are different from you or what you are used to, skews our judgment and actually dims our higher critical reasoning skills and causes us to rewire, many times fraudulently, our memory circuits.

Naomi Wolf even admits that she wrote the book in "desperate heat" and "haste" because of an "extreme emergency" that she perceived was happening. So what had made her so scared???? A friend of her compared Bush to Hitler - YUP five minutes into the video and Reductio ad Hitlerum has reared its ugly head. Are you frickng serious - is this what passes for intelligent thought on the far left??????

But Naomi wolf KNOWS very clearly why she is doing this - because a counterpart of fear is anger; and Hitler not only instills fear in people but also raises their anger. By making someone angry and fearful, scientist tell us that we lose even more of our critical thinking abilities and this is highly important for Ms. Wolfe to inculcate her already low-information audience.

But it gets better, Naomi Wolf who has NO degree in foreign affairs, history or political science starts to lecture us all that she has found the secret code of instituting a dictatorship. She in fact says ALL dictatorships have followed this exact same formula, just no one has noticed this but her. Wow aren't we blessed to have her educating all of the experts in this field, what would we do without her??????

So what are these ten steps:

1 Invoke an external and internal threat.

One thing was crystal clear about how the left and right responded to 9/11.
