In modern America, talk radio host Levin argues, the civil society is being steadily devoured by a ubiquitous federal government. But as the government grows into an increasingly authoritarian and centralized federal Leviathan, many parents continue to tolerate, if not enthusiastically champion, grievous public policies that threaten their children and successive generations with a grim future at the hands of a brazenly expanding and imploding entitlement state poised to burden them with massive debt, mediocre education, waves of immigration, and a deteriorating national defense. Levin's latest book is an appeal to reason and audacity -- one intended for all Americans but particularly the rising generation. Younger people must find the personal strength and will to break through the cycle of statist manipulation, unrelenting emotional overtures, and the pressure of groupthink, which are humbling, dispiriting, and absorbing them; to stand up against the heavy hand of centralized government, which if left unabated will assuredly condemn them to economic and societal calamity.

Yuck. Mean-spirited itellectually dishonest nonsense. His ideas would make things worse, not better for young people e.g. the false claim that a minimum wage is a "job killer".
Don't waste your time on this.

All young people should read this book and then explore the reality of their situations today. With drastic changes in leadership, it might be possible to reverse things. Levin is right, the current Government is creating a very gloomy outlook for the young American of tomorrow. Good luck kids, it isn't going to be pretty.

I didn't rate this one. It is well written and true but to depressing so I didn't finish. I am old and hope to leave my kids something as my generation is robbing them.
