    Many commentators believe that America entered a conservative period beginning about 1979, and this has been characterized as a decline in liberalism. However, America has always been a conservative nation and has never embraced the full liberalism as had been conceived of and, to some degree, implemented by the Europeans. This book explores the reasons for this, and how the current populist movement in much of the Western world may be another barrier to the creation of a liberal state in America.

    American liberals often look back to the New Deal era in American history as some idealized period and given today’s economic predicament of income inequality and globalization, infer that the New Deal period is a model that could be followed in order to solve America’s current economic problems. But this view hides the fact that the New Deal era was not addressing many of its current economic problems, many that remain unsolved even today in late 2018.

    This book is an investigation of the word "democracy", to determine how the common definition meets the actual political reality in today's nations that call themselves democracies. We also try to determine whether the political process called democracy is leading to governments that are leading to man providing the highest quality of life for a nation's citizens, or whether these so-called democracies need reform to enable man to create a better future, and reach "the end of history."

    This book investigates the rise of Ronald Reagan and other conservatives in the late 1970s, and how they have succeeded in realizing their goal of attaining an "end of history" state in American life. They accomplished this by tapping into the traditional American values of conformity and the desire for material gain, first established by the Puritans and other early explorers to the New World.
