Naomi Wolf on “The End of America …”

Post to Twitter Post to Facebook

Naomi Wolf recently appeared on The Colbert Report to promote her new book, The End of America: A Letter of Warning to A Young Patriot.

The book’s publisher asserts:

In The End of America, Wolf gives voice to the cause of every American patriot: the preservation of the Constitution and the liberties it embodies and protects.

“Recent history has profound lessons for us in the U.S. today about how fascist, totalitarian, and other repressive leaders seize and maintain power, especially in what were once democracies. The secret is that these leaders all tend to take very similar, parallel steps. The Founders of this nation were so deeply familiar with tyranny and the habits and practices of tyrants that they set up our checks and balances precisely out of fear of what is unfolding today. We are seeing these same kinds of tactics now closing down freedoms in America, turning our nation into something that in the near future could be quite other than the open society in which we grew up and learned to love liberty,” stated Wolf.

Update: Wolf had an Op-Ed in The Guardian back in April.
