Optimistic About America's Future?
Don't Be.

In his giant New York Times bestseller, America Alone: The End of the World as We Know It , Mark Steyn predicted collapse for the rest of the Western World. Now, he adds, America has caught up with Europe on the great rush to self-destruction.

It's not just our looming financial collapse; it's not just a culture that seems on a fast track to perdition, full of hapless, indulgent, childish people who think government has the answer for every problem; it's not just America's potential eclipse as a world power because of the drunken sailor policymaking in Washington--no, it's all this and more that spells one word for America: Armageddon.

What will a world without American leadership look like? It won't be pretty--not for you and not for your children. America's decline won't be gradual, like an aging Europe sipping espresso at a caf#65533; until extinction (and the odd Greek or Islamist riot). No, America's decline will be a wrenching affair marked by violence and possibly secession.

With his trademark wit, Steyn delivers the depressing news with raw and unblinking honesty--but also with the touch of vaudeville stand-up and soft shoe that makes him the most entertaining, yet profound, columnist on the planet. And as an immigrant with nowhere else to go, he offers his own prescription for winning America back from the feckless and arrogant liberal establishment that has done its level best to suffocate the world's last best hope in a miasma of debt, decay, anddebility. You will not read a more important--or more alarming, or even funnier--book all year than After America .

Only slightly more subdued than his previous book "America Alone", this book is still thought provoking and as usual Mark Steyn takes prevailing wisdom head on. In the past America has helped other countries get back on their feet; but who is left to help America, now that she has such a big debt. China? Russia? Oil rich Saudi Arabia? He is opposed to big government and the idea that only government can solve all the problems in America, but concedes that it is harder to show initiative in business than in previous times. That too is often the result of government rules and regulations.
He's a good read, and will surely make you think.

Read this book.
Very up-to-date.
50 pages of documented sources to back up his viewpoint.
Someone who probably would not be invited for an interview on the CBC.

An eye opener, I couldn't put it down.

The author has a very negative view of Obama, and Amercia's future as a whole. He does go a but far in some cases, but does make very compelling arguments towards the current economic and political issues. A very good read. At times i was shocked, a little saddened, and even laughed a couple of times

"Civilization is not an evolution of mankind but the imposition of human good on human evil. It is not an historical inevitability. It is a battle that has to be fought every day, because evil doesn't recede willingly before the wheels of progress."
Andrew McCarthy quoted by Mark Steyn.

"Instead of the can-do-spirit we now have the can-do-with-some-government-funding spirit. And it is hard to get an inspirational heart-warmer out of that."
Mark Steyn
