Abstract:

Identity politics are beginning to encroach on every aspect of life. Civil liberties are increasingly seen as a threat to "safety". Progressives marginalize conservative, traditional Christians, and other dissenters. Technology and consumerism hastens the possibility of a corporate surveillance state. And the pandemic, having put millions out of work, leaves our country especially vulnerable to demagogic manipulation. Dreher draws on the wisdom of Christian survivors of Soviet persecution to warn American Christians of approaching dangers. He explains how the totalitarianism facing us today is based less on overt violence and more on psychological manipulation. -- adapted from jacket
