While I don’t always agree with Mark Levin regarding President Donald J. Trump, I have read all of his books (except his new one) and on policy we do agree. His contribution to the debate in the public square is “yuuuge,” and for that I appreciate him.
Here is the text of a post by Victoria Taft at the Independent Journal Review (it’s worth getting their emails) — click here to watch the video:
Mark Levin’s new book, Rediscovering Americanism: And the Tyranny of Progressivism has just hit No. 1 on Amazon’s list and it only just arrived in the bookstores.
The constitutional lawyer and radio host gave viewers of the “Hannity” show on Fox News a sneak peek of some of the fundamental principles that Americans used to share — and how they differ from the pervading progressive beliefs.
He put it in an “us versus them, conservative versus progressive” way.
Here’s his list:
- We believe in the Constitution, they believe in centralism.
- We believe in individualism, they believe in conformity.
- We believe in private property, they believe in collectivism.
- We believe in prosperity, they believe in redistribution.
- We believe in separation of powers, they believe in the administrative state.
- We believe in eternal truths, they believe in ideological social engineering.
- We believe in cultural stability, they believe in constant transformation.
- We believe in real science, they believe in social science.
- We believe in the rights of man, they believe in the power of government.
- We believe in the moral order, they believe in situational ethics.
- We believe in liberty, they believe in a growing authoritarianism.
- We believe in education, they believe in indoctrination.
- We believe in civil society, they believe in the federal leviathan.
Levin told Hannity that the differences are so stark that, “There couldn’t be any bigger difference between them and us.”
