Flynn remarks on the impetus behind this powerful book:

I wrote this book to answer a question that practically everybody is asking: "Where are we heading?" More people ask that question than any other.... I thought it was about time for someone to answer it candidly and with blunt facts.


John T. Flynn

John T. Flynn was a journalist, author, and master polemicist of the Old Right. He started out as a liberal columnist for that flagship of American liberalism, the New Republic, and wound up on the Right, denouncing "creeping socialism." What is unusual about Flynn is that instead of being seduced by the New Deal and the Popular Front into supporting the war, Flynn was led by his thoroughgoing antiwar stance to challenge the developing state worship of modern liberalism. Flynn's essential insight — that the threat to America is not to be found in any foreign capitol, but in Washington, D.C.
