In The Journal of David Q. Little R. Daniel McMichael describes how a country lost its freedom and spiraled downward into chaos, tyranny, poverty, and barbarism. Many thoughtful young people read Ayn Rand and Atlas Shrugged to see the dangers of big government and modern bureaucracy. It is my sincere hope that they will read The Journal of David Q. Little the same way and see a more accurate portrayal of what their world could look like, and how nuclear weapons and nuclear blackmail, t to mention radical leftist ideology, could be our undoing. Despite its dark themes, The Journal of David Q. Little is the story also of hope and it is here we find McMichael the patriot for he presents to an American reader both the dangers and the way out. In this masterwork of philosophy and politics, The Journal of David Q. Little shows why America is worth defending, w and forever.
