The 15% Solution:
A Political History of American
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.
"The New Americanism:
How the Democratic Party
Can Win the Presidency"
In The New Americanism (1992), Dr. Jonas presents his proposal for that “new vision and mission” for the Democratic Party that so many, for so many years, have been urging it to find, and that still eludes it, even as the 2008 Presidential campaign is well underway. He finds them, needed with increasing urgency as the Georgites drive our nation towards frank theocratic fascism with increasing speed and determination, in the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution.
