The End of America

Naomi Wolf is a best selling author and political consultant. She became famous with her book “The Beauty Myth” (1991). Naomi wrote that women were under assault by the “beauty myth” in five areas: work, religion, sex, violence, and hunger. In 1996 Wolf was involved in talking with the Clinton campaign about how to reach the “soccer moms” and other female voters in his bid for re-election. In 2000 she was hired by Al Gore’s campaign for president as a consultant on how to target female voters.

After reading about her some people have asked why we are having her on our show. What got our attention was her 2007 publication called “The End of America”: Letter of warning to a young patriot. Here she outlines 10 steps necessary for a state to take control of individual lives.

1. Invoke a terrifying internal and external enemy.
2. Create secret prisons where torture takes place.
3. Develop a thug caste or paramilitary force not answerable to citizens.
4. Set up an internal surveillance system.
5. Harass citizens' groups.
6. Engage in arbitrary detention and release.
7. Target key individuals.
8. Control the press.
9. Treat all political dissents to be traitors.
10. Suspend the rule of law.

This book takes a look at the rise of fascism and how this pattern was followed in Nazi Germany and Italy. She urges Americans to take action and restore the constitution. If you look at history you can see a clear pattern for turning a free society into a dictatorship, she compares these steps to those taken by the Bush Administration after 9/11.

Tune in Thursday, March 6th at 5 PM Eastern to our show the North Virginia Patriots as we get into more details these 10 steps.

As we have already met requirements 1-7, it should be a wake-up call. However, the selfish interests of the upper class and the lower class will prevent us in the middle from stopping it unless we ae very, very good at keeping the pressure on.
