What a wonderful book! Mark presented his thoughts in a clear and concise manner. The way he articulates what is happening in America is not politically motivated with party politics; instead it points out the factors to ensure our Constitutional Republic lives on for hundreds of years. I urge everyone to take some time out of their day and read/listen to this book/audiobook.
I listened from start to finish in a weekend. It was an I opening book that changed the way I view American politics.
Gets down to the principals of real conservatism and pitfalls of statism.
Mark eloquently shows the snake-like mentality in the minds of leftists, while illustrating the many failings of their policies and usurpations.
The conservative manifesto is a fantastic guideline for activists to use in their fight against the totalitarian mindset of modern day "liberals".
At the end of the book Mr. Levin quotes President Reagan, "Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction." This thoughtful, well written book shows how this has come about in the United States. The New York Times must cringe to acknowledge it is on its best seller list. Read it and weep.
Liberty & Tyranny is a fantastic book. Dr. Levin's predictive powers are a bit uncanny given that this book was researched and written before the election of President Barack Obama and discusses many of the changes that are already in the process of being championed by the new administration.
Regardless of your political persuasion, this book offers some fascinating insights into both the history of American political thought and into what the future may hold for all of us if we continue on our present course.
This book touches on many themes - history, politics, economics and social policy among them - and clarifies basic tenants of conservatism in the context of the relationship between the U.S. Constitution, the individual and the body politic.
If you are like me, once you read this book you will want to share it with others.
