Steven Jonas’ revised edition of his classic, The 15% Solution, How the Republican Right Took Control of the US, 1981-2022, a futuristic novel outlining in detail how the Christian fundamentalist right could take over the reins of the US government has just entered main distribution through Amazon (US, France, Germany). The tip sheet reads:

Written as “true fiction” The 15% Solution focuses on the threat of fascism, “American style,” posed now by Christian fundamentalism operating within the confines of the Republican party. The book shows how theocratic authoritarianism can be gradually introduced into any country, even the “world’s greatest democracy,” behind a façade of Constitutional legality, no less. As a “dystopic future history” it follows in the tradition established by its major forebears: Jack London’s The Iron Heel and Sinclair Lewis’ It Can’t Happen Here.  Dr. Jonas’ book, based on what the Republican Christian Right has already told us they will do as they gather more and more power, may, sadly, well prove to be correct.  That is unless the U.S. people wake up to what is happening all around them and do something about it before it is too late.

Electronic editions are currently available in all major formats, including Kindle, Epub, etc.

    A number of factors have brought me into a state of deep depression as I approach the age of 80 years.

    I have watched in horror as the worst predictions of the terrible fate of our “civilization” have come to pass.

    The Christian right has taken over the government with the help of energy created and amplified by racial hatred as its fuel. Actually the deed was accomplished in 1968 but was confirmed in the election of that half wit, Ronald Reagan, to the presidency of the United States of America. The Oligarchs have provided the plan and now call the plays. The Oligarchs will destroy the Christian Right when they no longer need them as foot soldiers.

    Every institution of authority to which, in my youth, I looked for help in knowing “The Truth” has failed me.

    Criminal behavior by the corporate ruling class has been rampant at least since the 1970′s and arguably since the founding of the “Nation”. I can see no force capable of turning back this tide of criminogenic behavior.

    I am too old to have a voice, or to take a militant position in opposition to the forces of evil that have prevailed.

    I hope to live just long enough to hold the hands of my beloved wife as she breathes her last, make arrangements for the disposal of our remains and bid goodbye to those few for whom I still feel affection.

    At age 72, disabled and on Oxygen to breath, and having lost my wife to cancer last year, I know exactly how you feel. Thankfully I’ve a new girl friend who has through her being, installed new energy into my body and together we also plan to shout as loud as we can to anyone that will listen. I personally object to folks calling themselves “Christian,” and failing to read the book, but follow blindly the next new charismatic fellow who takes the air waves, or is on Oprah. The ones that use rap and rock music to entertain rather than preach the good book and when they do quote from the book, they use a few sentences out of context and spend the next 45 minutes telling their own interpretation of what it should mean to the ignorant sheep that follow such nonsense. They have hijacked my religion and my love of Christ and turned it into one of the things he warned about when He was with us on this plain of existence. The temple of God is within, not somewhere in the clouds. To pray, means to go into ones closet and talk to the Father who already knows what you need. It’s all in the book! The Clergy who support big business because they get donations to keep their life style where they want and place more emphasis on material wealth than on true following of Jesus Christ are false teachers.

    I’m pissed and upset over this turn of events and the sickness of the present public. Both my folks are buried in Military cemeteries, one at Ft. Sam Houston and one at Punchbowl, National Cemetery of the Pacific on Oahu, Hawaii. They paid with their time and work during WW2 to keep our country free and to allow those alive today to live the American dream. I’ve watched that dream slowly disappear with companies that are too big to fail, banks that needed more money to start loaning money again and businesses cut back on employees and reduce or stop paying retirement and health benefits, union busting, federal workers forced to work shorter weeks, ad nauseum. It’s got to stop and if we as individuals don’t stand up for what is morally right, then there will be no one left to stand up for us. The fight is lop sided in the favor of the military, religious and business interests to take over this nation and enslave us all. We have to stand and be counted. The time is past due, it is “Now” or never.

    Blessings to all, may peace be with you.

    I’m not quite 80, but I see it on the horizon. I also see your point Mr. Savage, and see myself in the same place as yourself.

    I take a pessimistic view of America and see no hope for her future as envisioned by our founding fathers. The United States is proof that any good idea can become twisted, perverted, and turned into something oppressive and downright wicked.

    My concern is for my son, who is only 32 years old. My wife and I will be gone long before him and I am deeply concerned about the perils he will face as he reaches old age. Maybe the monster corporations will destroy the world as they systematically destroy each other as each competes for supreme power.

    We, as a nation, had so much to look forward to. We had so much to gain. And we threw it away. May God have mercy upon us for allowing this to happen.
