The 15% Solution
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.
