Book Review: Plunder and Deceit by: Mark Levin

Plunder and Deceit: Big Government's Exploitation of Young People and the Future, by Mark R. Levin, Threshold Editions and imprint of Simon and Schuster, New York, 2015.
Mark Levin is a very eloquent author; however too much eloquence can be hard to read.  I don't have the vocabulary Levin has.
I found this book to be very scary, and if it wasn't true it would make a good Halloween story.  I especially found the chapter on the environment disturbing.  He identified a group of people called the "degrowthers."  This is a group of fanatics who will use any means to exploit people in the name of the environment.  This is most disturbing because many people, including President Obama, call people denies or flat earthers if they don't agree with this nonsense.  It could well be that the flat earthers are those who advocate these things.  What is scary is that the Bureau of the Interior and the Environmental Protection Agency have been given such great powers, and they continually find ways to usurp even more power, in our society.  It seems the Constitution is no longer valid, in that these powers are reserved to the states.  In this case they don't even follow the laws enacted by congress.  Other topics in this book include: the Constitution, the debt, student loans, minimum wage and national defense (talk about another scary topic.)
This book is well written and to the point.  Levin calls for young people, and old people to start a new civil rights movement--that we actually abide by the Constitution.  The Constitution is our only defense against tyranny and a bloated government.
