I think The End of America (Wolf 2007) is playing off The End of
History (Fukuyama 2006). I also think that Wolf is running in a pack
with others (Moore (Sicko), Gore (An Inconvenient Truth) who are
marketing their ideas by emphasizing big implications.
Here is the issue: Are American's critically minded enough to
discern accuracy from hedging? If "we" are foolish enough not to
know that America has become a fascist country, then are "we" not
foolish enough to be fooled into believing anything that gets promoted?
