In November 2008 citizens of the United States elected perhaps the most radical Progressive politician in its history to the Presidency. The opposing citizens and outgoing Republican administration accepted this verdict without rancor or defiance. In November 2016 citizens of the United States elected perhaps the most Populist non-politician in its history to the Presidency. The opposing citizens and outgoing Democrat administration erupted in what can only be described as a riot of resistance that has continued unabated to this day.
This book seeks to expose the breadth and depth of this Progressive riot that has been tearing asunder this nation’s founding principles, governing institutions and civil society. It also seeks to identify and illuminate the various ideological sources by which Progressives justify this riot. By so doing perhaps the illusions that allowed such a situation to develop can be dispelled, thus enabling a more effective opposition.
