New York Times Bestseller How far are Americans willing to go to force each other to fall in line? According to the establishment media, the intelligentsia, and our political chattering class, the greatest threat to American freedom lies in right-wing authoritarianism. We’ve heard that some 75 million Americans who voted for Donald Trump represent the rise of American fascism; that conservatives have allowed authoritarianism to bloom in their midst, creating a grave danger for the republic. But what if the true authoritarian threat to America doesn’t come from the political right, but from the supposedly anti-fascist left? There are certainly totalitarians on the political right. But statistically, they represent a fringe movement with little institutional clout. The authoritarian left, meanwhile, is ascendant in nearly every area of American life. A small number of leftists—college-educated, coastal, and uncompromising—have not just taken over the Democratic Party but our corporations, our universities, our scientific establishment, our cultural institutions. And they have used their newfound power to silence their opposition. The authoritarian Left is aggressively insistent that everyone must conform to its values, demanding submission and conformity. The dogmatic Left is obsessed with putting people in categories and changing human nature. Everyone who opposes it must be destroyed. Ben Shapiro looks at everything from pop culture to the Frankfurt school, social media to the Founding Fathers, to explain the origins of our turn to tyranny, and why so many seem blind to it. More than a catalog of bad actors and intemperate acts, The Authoritarian Moment lays bare the intolerance and rigidity creeping into all American ideology – and prescribes the solution to ending the authoritarianism that threatens our future.

Summary of The Authoritarian Moment Right-wing authoritarianism, according to the establishment media, the intellectuals, and our political chattering class, is the greatest threat to American freedom. We've heard that Donald Trump's 75 million votes symbolize the development of American fascism; that conservatives have allowed authoritarianism to flourish in their midst, posing a severe threat to the republic. But what if the genuine authoritarian threat to America comes from the ostensibly anti-fascist left, rather than the political right? He does an excellent job of examining the left's plan to destabilize America. On the political right, there are clearly totalitarians. However, they are statistically a fringe movement with little institutional clout. Meanwhile, the authoritarian left is gaining ground in practically every aspect of American life. A small group of college-educated, coastal, and uncompromising leftists have taken over not only the Democratic Party, but also our corporations, colleges, scientific establishments, and cultural organizations. They've also used their newfound authority to stifle critics. The authoritarian Left is adamant that everyone must adhere to its beliefs, and it demands obedience and conformity. The dogmatic Left is fixated with categorizing people and altering human nature. Everyone who stands in its way must be eliminated. To be continued...

Buy now to get the main key ideas from Ben Shapiro's The Authoritarian Moment In The Authoritarian Moment (2021), conservative commentator Ben Shapiro sets out to expose the authoritarian Left, its many tactics to silence its conservative opposition, and how it has become so powerful in today’s social media-driven landscape. Shapiro believes that an authoritarian regime is laying siege to the foundations of American life, and it is the country’s own radical Left that leads it. Some Americans may be surprised that left-wing Democrats are responsible for creating an authoritarian regime in America, but their lust for power has driven them to carry out tactics normally identified with foreign dictatorships. Controlling the media, renormalizing American institutions, and silencing their opposition has caused extreme polarization within the country, and is leading to a dystopian future where anyone opposing the radical Left’s woke ideologies will be cast out and severely punished.

What do we value as a political virtue? What are the core values of democracy in the modern era? What is a democratic culture and can it coexist with a predatory capitalist corporatism? Is democracy just about human rights? What is the nature of public dissent? These are some of the questions posed in this book as Peter Marden extends debates on democracy by critically examining the key role of values often associated with neo-liberalism and the traditions of thought concerning public conceptions of democratic life. Within the volume various normative arguments from prominent political theorists are addressed, particularly those associated with deliberative approaches to the study of contemporary democracy. Marden is motivated by an interest in the language and spirit of democracy as a values-based culture not solely driven by technocratic devices but a genuine reframing of the values necessary to underpin any peculiar democratic practice. Throughout the book examples are taken from the Australian, United Kingdom, and United States democratic experience post-9/11 to explore the dimensions of democratic culture, the nuanced tensions between the individual as an autonomous reflective subject and conceptions of the common good.

Due to factors such as income inequality and multiculturalism, liberal democracies have weakened considerably in the last quarter century. Democratic ideals have retreated in Venezuela, the Philippines, Hungary, Russia, and Poland. Many worry that they're on the decline in such bastions of democracy as western Europe and the United States, where fear and distrust of the status quo has opened the door to authoritarian leaders. Is there any hope of getting back to the prosperity and freedom of the mid-twentieth century? The viewpoints in this enlightening resource tackle this complex topic from a broad range of perspectives.

In this thought-provoking book, Günter Frankenberg explores why authoritarian leaders create new constitutions, or revise old ones. Through a profound analysis of authoritarian constitutions as phenomena in their own right, Frankenberg reveals their purposes, the audiences they seek to address and investigates the ways in which they fit into the broader context of autocracies.
