A NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER!

A growing number of Americans want to tear down what it's taken us 250 years to build??and they'll start by canceling our shared history, ideals, and culture.

Traditional areas of civic agreement are vanishing. We can't agree on what makes America special. We can't even agree that America is special. We're coming to the point that we can't even agree what the word America itself means. "Disintegrationists" say we're stronger together, but their assault on America's history, philosophy, and culture will only tear us apart.

Who are the disintegrationists? From Howard Zinn's A People's History of the United States to the New York Times' 1619 project, many modern analyses view American history through the lens of competing oppressions, a racist and corrupt experiment from the very beginning. They see American philosophy as a lie ?? beautiful words pasted over a thoroughly rotted system. They see America's culture of rights as a façade that merely reinforces traditional hierarchies of power, instead of being the only culture that guarantees freedom for individuals.

Disintegrationist attacks on the values that built our nation are insidious because they replace each foundational belief, from the rights to free speech and self-defense to the importance of marriage and faith communities, with nothing more than an increased reliance on the government.

This twisted disintegrationist vision replaces the traditional "unionist" understanding that all Americans are united in a shared striving toward the perfection of universal ideals.

How to Destroy America in Three Easy Steps shows that to be a cohesive nation we have to uphold foundational truths about ourselves, our history, and reality itself??to be unionists instead of disintegrationists. Shapiro offers a vital warning that if we don't recover these shared truths, our future??our union??as a great country is threatened with… (mere)

This is a good presentation of Ben Shapiro's broadly Libertarian and conservative views on America (history, present, future). Most of this would have been essentially mainstream until the past ~15 years) -- it's not arguments for low taxes, lack of any social safety net, etc., but just that broadly America has produced good results for Americans and the world and that where it has failed to do so has just been an implementation failure and not a reason to throw the whole thing out. In particular, slavery was not the economic engine which has driven >400 years of economic success in America, but a crutch used by some people in the South, contrary to both moral and economic values, and largely not the cause of income (vs. wealth) disparities in America today.

As an audiobook -- I know I encourage authors, especially those trying to present a political or philosophical argument, to narrate their own audiobooks. Unfortunately I find Ben Shapiro's ideas a lot more acceptable than his voice (especially at 2X); it's just grating, mostly because I associate it with various soundbite arguments on TV (which rarely show anyone at their best).

Another good entry by Shapiro, focusing on how and why liberalism/leftism desires to demolish what this country was so they can remake it in a more socialist/communist image. When a Democrat says they want to change America, they mean destroy and remake. Shapiro labels these people and their philosophy "Disintegrationists." They want to disintegrate American society into labeled "tribes" (e.g. black, white; male, female, etc.; rich, poor; immigrant, native; religious, atheist; left, right; etc.) by removing all that unites and unifies Americans of whatever stripe. Shapiro calls the opposite group "Unionists": people who might be different in whatever outward aspect or philosophical bent, but still believe in certain unifying beliefs about America. Endnotes, index. Interesting facts and philosophical thoughts. ( )
