Chasing Utopia: The Evolution of the Oppressive Far Left (Paperback)
What are the origins to concentrated power and socialism? How did socialism lead to today's politically correct speech, preferential relativism, and identity politics?
Chasing Utopia tracks the evolution of sinister movements and people such as ancient Sparta, Plato's Republic, Rousseau, Marx, Gramsci and others, to explain how their ideas eventually formed America's progressive movement.
From Woodrow Wilson's progressivism to the far-left 2020 progressive Democrats, utopian chasers seek to fundamentally transform the United States of America into a socialist state. Their deleterious goals include a green utopia via a mythical carbon problem.
The last remaining hope for goodness and liberty, America, has been the antithesis of utopianism. America was formed by the three C's: Christian values, U.S. Constitutional rights, and Capitalism's free market principles.
America is functioning as two diametrically opposed ideologies under one country. Which philosophy will prevail: the progressive horde Chasing Utopia or the last good society based in God-given, eternal rights?
