The 15% Solution: A Political History of American Fascism, 2001-?

Jonathan Westminster paints an all too familiar scenario about the "coming of age" of Fascism in America in his aptly titled book: The 15% Solution: A Political History of American Fascism.

The frightening part, as reviewer, Michael Carmichael, points out, is this book was written in 1996! Westminster's prognostic view of the 21st century in America as a fascist state is sadly proving far more fact than fiction and corroborates present day reality is closer to a totalitarianism state than being specious fantasy concocted by democrats, liberals and left-wing blogs.

Carmichael’s abbreviated list of events, which Jonathan Westminster foretells with startling accuracy, can only be described as “stunningly terrifying!” Many of these events have already unfolded under the Bush Regime and more of them are illuminated and brought to fruition each and every day.

Read an excerpt of Michael Carmichael’s review of “The 15% Solution below”. Then, in the interest of the continuation of genuine democracy, may we all plead that the culmination of the nefarious actions of the Bush administration is the zenith, and not merely the beginning, of a far more ominous and disturbing future for America.

Review excerpt by, Michael Carmichael

"The merger of the Republican party with the right-wing religious evangelism of Pat Robertson and Jerry Falwell; the supreme exaltation of the exeuctive branch of government initiated by Nixon, Reagan and Bush; the congressional acquiescence in extraordinary powers to the presidency; the 'voluntary' censorship of the press; the suspension of civil rights; the retraction of the fourth amendment; the isolation from constitutional protection for targeted segments of society; the systematic insinuation of civilians into domestic espionage; the use of torture in prisons; the perversion of the concept of American patriotism to mean nothing more than political support for the president; the reduction of government to military and police operations; the implementation of vast secret police forces; engagement in ill-defined foreign wars; tax cuts for the rich; dissolution of domestic social programmes; merger of state and christian church; deletion of women's rights to terminate pregnancies; legalisation of marital rape, incest and domestic violence; scientific confirmation of the intellecutal inferiority of racial groups; ; racial discrimination in law enforcement and criminal justice; repeal of environmental protection laws and the dissolution of the EPA; large scale timber felling and mineral expoitation in national parks by private corporations; the political implosion of the Democratic Party - Sound familiar? If so, then imagine that somewhere in America , a single solitary visionary at work alone in his garret produced a novel based on the scenario above. Now imagine the date: 1996. Jonathan Westminster has done precisely that...."
