Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Ameritopia: The Unmaking of America (Hardcover)
Once again, through very researched detail and very precise wording, Mr. Levin gives us all a very ominous warning about what type of government growth we are careening towards and to what extent our personal liberties will necessarily be lost to that end. The book seems to be condensed to the point where re-reading usually brings out even more points to consider.
If you love what our country has always stood for and honestly want our Democratic-Republic to endure-this is a must read.
And very hard to argue with, hence the ratings attack by the lefists in this review section. It is their modus to simply slime something that they can not logically argue with.
Read and enjoy, then let it stew a week or so then re-read. You're bound to miss something the 1st time.

And would America be etter served to be isolationist? We agree to disagree on that point. We didn't start any damn war. They did.

No, america would not be etter served to be isolationist, that is why I completely disagree with Levin's isolationist policies. And quit calling others isolationist when it's levin type policies isolate us from the rest of the world.
"It is not we non-interventionists who are isolationists. The real isolationists are those who impose sanctions and embargoes on countries and peoples across the globe because they disagree with the internal and foreign policies of their leaders. The real isolationists are those who choose to use force overseas to promote democracy, rather than seek change through diplomacy, engagement, and by setting a positive example." -Ron Paul
Plus we can't afford it. Plus it doesn't work. The Interventions have caused more terrorists.
How can people understand how the interventions in our economy and personal lives produce negative results, but not understand how interventions overseas are producing the same negative results? Seriously, where have our interventions helped?

Ed Gehead says:
You, like Levin, mistakenly equate non-interventionism with isolationism. Non-interventionism does not mean not acting in self-defense. Our nation should always act in self defense to include acting abroad when it is necessary. We should also engage in world trade and protect our trade routes. What we should not do is get involved in nation building, regime change, prohibiting nuclear development, taking sides in conflicts, and generally picking the values of other nations. Do some reading about this subject and you will discover that we have a sorry history of interventionism.That is why much of the world views us as imperialists.

Polokfla & Levin's idea of critical thinking is closing their eyes, sticking their fingers in their ears and humming loudly. Laughably short sighted and ignorant, just like this book.
