Abstract:

Holmes surveys the state of liberalism in America today and finds that it is becoming its opposite-- illiberalism-- becoming an intolerant, rigidly dogmatic ideology that abhors dissent and stifles free speech. He argues that today's liberalism has forsaken its American roots, incorporating instead the authoritarian, anti-clerical, and anti-capitalist prejudices of the radical and largely European Left. The result is a closing of the American liberal mind.
