Defending American Freedom in the 2020s, Starts with Understanding the 2010s.

Through this curated selection of his columns from the 2010s and new commentary on America’s most pressing challenges, Tom Basile takes readers on a journey through a tumultuous decade to ensure we have a battle plan for the future. We need to let it sink in that the threats to American freedom and values are real. The ideology advanced in the 2010s by the far Left with the help of the tech industry, entertainment, education, news media, big government liberals, status quo conservatives, secular humanists and others must spur real action to protect our way of life as we tackle the 2020s. As Basile discusses, activists driving change in our society are not just a ragtag band of Astroturf eco-warriors, anti-cop lunatics, or rabid, pink-hat-wearing feminists. In the last decade, they’ve been strengthened by technology, media and billions in capital invested in their causes. Government’s failures during the 2010s were equally profound and should also serve to refocus all Americans on our proven formula for exceptionalism. Basile believes that freedom-loving Republicans and traditional Democrats can reverse the trends that threaten the promise of America, drive division and seek to destroy our values. Let it Sink In offers a roadmap for the 2020s that will make Americans stronger and America even greater.
