Summary

The Founding Fathers believed that the proper goal of the State was to make men and women free to develop their faculties and to pursue virtue and wisdom. Our Constitution was built around these principles, protecting civil liberties and developing a careful system of checks and balances which protected our freedom from tyranny. Naomi Wolf’s latest work,The End of America: A Letter of Warning to a Young Patriotexposes how the escalation of Executive Power has eroded these core values and systems, limiting our Congress to make laws, and our courts to interpret them – a scenario that our Founding Fathers foresaw and warned against. Wolf outlines in this citizen call to action, reminiscent of Thomas Paine’s reveredCommon Sense, the real threats that exist to our civil liberties and explains how working together we can solve the growing threat.
