In this semi-fictional satire, award-winning humorist Scott Erickson assumes the identity of a British historian looking back from the year 2076 to explain how and why America fell.
The book is for people who suspect that America is collapsing and are looking for validation. The message to the reader is: You’re not crazy, it’s the world.
By examining America’s past and projecting it into the future, the book shows how America’s core assumptions have determined its history and will determine its destiny. It shows that America is destroying itself while remaining absolutely clueless as to the reasons why.
It provides insights into a variety of related questions, such as: Why is the cost of living rising, and will continue to rise? What are the effects of America’s addiction to economic growth? Why is America experiencing a rise in fascist impulses? Why is the “dumbing down of America” turning into “America’s embrace of stupidity”?
The History of the Decline and Fall of America openly embraces what America refuses to admit: If America doesn’t change course, it’s doomed.
