WARNING This review is longI will start this review by stating how disappointed I was in The Next American Civil War The Populist Revolt Against the Liberal Elite To begin the title is misleading There is no discussion of any coming civil war The subtitle seems to be appropriate in that the book sets out to explain the existence of current populist movements in the United States such as the Tea Party within philosophical and historical contexts that show that these movements not only have had their place in the creation of America but need to continue to exist to if Americans are to maintain their hard fought for liberty Harris sets out to do this by contrasting the populists or natural libertarians with the liberal elites those who are willing to trade personal freedom for greater wealth health and comfort This is a somewhat simplistic approach but the opposition makes for easy discussion I would suspect however that the majority of Americans particularly most Republicans would not see themselves described in either group It is worth noting that the Republican Party for the most part is lumped in with the liberal elites Despite all of their verbiage Harris sees them as with the elites because they do tend to be educated and they do support a bigger role for government than most populists would approve of Hence we can see the current struggle within the Republican Party for control between the Tea Party and traditional Republican conservatives I would like to raise an issue here on an interesting tension within the book that Harris establishes from the beginning The books intended audience is obviously the liberal elites I say this because by Harris s own definition the populists are not much interested in ideas much less books Also the book is largely a plea to the liberal elites not to ridicule or stare down their noses at the populists but rather to try to understand them and their necessary role in society That being the case I was taken by the descriptors used by Harris throughout the book to discuss the two groups Natural libertarians vs liberal elites Within America today some of these are powerful words Elite has long been a derogatory word in supposedly egalitarian society It immediately denotes someone who does not see everyone as their eual Recently the word liberal has taken on an extremely insulting connotation in America a favourite word used by Fox Media to put down the enemy The connotations here would seem to range from na ve and sneering to overeducated and evil The populists are also referred to as ornery a word that makes me think of a nasty but rather cuddly old man not to be taken as a real threat I find it interesting that in a book which Harris obviously intends to present as balanced he would use language intended to get his readers hackles up Perhaps it serves a purpose in keeping the elites on the defensive so that they are accepting of the main argument This is not so much a criticism as an observation I would also not that in his discussions Harris is almost condescending towards the populists He often speaks of them as simple minded and unable to understand ideas Thus the elites need to be even understandingMy greatest criticisms of the book lie in the errors and omissions Most philosophers are given rather short shrift They are rather stood up against each other in a face off where one inevitably falls to the other Thinkers such as Locke Burke Hobbes and Paine played a large role in the formation of the United States as well as in providing justification for the revolution So did others who are not mentioned The thought of Montesuieu for example played a huge role in the development of the Constitution Indeed he is the most cited writer in the Federalist Papers the documents which most clearly show the intentions of the framers of the Constitution Locke appears not at all Also I would note that while these ideas were central to thought of leaders of the Revolution and the framers of the subseuent form of government as Harris would readily agree they had little effect on the backwoods settlers who formed the backbone of the Continental Army and perhaps whose reasons for fighting are central to Harris s arguments And yet in his development of the book Harris gives us little idea as to who these people were other than telling us that they were independent minded natural libertatarians Again I will not attempt to develop the book I believe Harris should have written but I would like to cite some of his omissions First in his explanation Harris discusses the Puritan arrivals on American shores those brave souls fleeing England in search of religious freedom It has to be noted that the Puritans had spent ten years previous to their departure in the Netherlands where the Dutch afforded considerable freedom What they wanting to escape were the constant theological arguments of the Dutch which were distracting many of the English Puritans It should also be noted that in the various colonies all established with a charter from the King of England there were various religious denominations They tended to be very controlling and not permissive of any religious freedom in their own colony Religious freedom was not the goal rather it was religious exclusivity Those who were seen as heretical were usually cast out Luckily there was always Rhode Island and the colonies which existed for purely economic reasons What is important from a religious viewpoint is the 18th century immigration of over 100000 Sots Irish and Anglo Scots border country protestants into the colonies They came with a strong tradition of English democracy such as it was English concepts of personal rights and an intense resentment towards the English for trying to force the Anglican religion on them Harris should have drawn on these independently minded backcountry settlers often with a history of violence against English incursions in Scotland and Ireland as a source for his modern day populists I see it as no coincidence that they tended to settle in the southern colonies The American South has provided the base for what Harris refers to as the Populist Revolt of 1828 as well as the Civil War It remains the centre of the current populist movement Harris seems to have studiously associated the populist movement with any particular areas in the US but the south is definitely the largest centreThis is overly long so I will sum up by citing other omissions which I believe to be destructive to the book Harris never seriously raises the issue of religion as an aspect of modern day populists and yet it has to be seen as a huge factor The current populists including the Tea Party are obviously associated with the religious right in the US Indeed the rise of the Tea Party may be seen in some part to be the result of the failure of the religious right to make serious inroads into American social policy in recent years Worth exploring but Harris doesn t touch itHe also fails to make connections to the economy No mention of the housing crisis that has had such a huge effect in currently populist areas No mention of joblessness No mention of the increasing gap between rich elites and poor populist Energy debates environmental issues also not identified He also says nothing about race Harris avoids any discussion Harris notes the rise of the current populist movement in 2009 but he avoids mentioning any possible tie to the election of Barack Obama someone who is apparently black Caricatures and insults continue to be thrown at him constantly Race continues to be a huge ongoing issue in the US For a country where so much has been done to eliminate racism the issue is huge It seems to seep into everythingNor does he discuss the whole issue of gun regulation which is extremely important to many populists We have all seen pictures of grinning armed men marching in streets or sitting in restaurants with their assault rifles openly taunting their opponents to challenge them Harris is correct in seeing that these people are frustrated and need to be taken into account but he should also give some sense of where the right to bear arms came from in the Constitution and why it is such a huge issue todayBy ignoring or refusing to discuss these issues I would suggest that Harris has failed to fulfill his goal in this book He is correct in stating that a discussion and understanding are necessary And yes the liberally minded Americans can show understanding However religion race discrimination and assault rifles are foremost in the minds of many liberals These people see something ugly and need to have their concerns brought forward tooFinally a generic comment Besides failing to deal with the above issues Harris does nothing to really define who he is talking about Who are the populists According to Harris they are a bunch of outspoken people at town hall meetings in 2009 After that they are presented to us in such terminology as to leave the reader with a view of a bunch of ignorant illiterate stubborn ornery perhaps dangerous folks everybody else is afraid of But they are needed to protect freedom I would suggest that rather than his own conceptual version of these populists Harris would have been better to have framed them not only in objective terms but also to have given them some place in the book to speak for themselves They are not all unable to speak for themselves

    Lee Harris presents a wide ranging and balanced exploration of the roots of the culture war now raging in America and elsewhere despite the unfortunately provocative title The author is a gay intellectual living in the heart of conservative rural Georgia and his book can be seen as a celebration of contradictions The thesis is that the significance of the current “Tea Party” populist revolt cannot be properly unde

    I first saw this book on the shelves of a neat bookstore in Manchester NH this past summer I didn't buy it then but after getting the gist of it from the cover and a uick look at the table of contents I thought about its thesis It argues there is currently a cultural civil war going on in the US that is a repetition of other times including the Civil War of 1861 On one side are beliefs and attitudes best described as populist an

    This book was interesting There were times where I had to make myself keep reading it because it leans toward conservative arguments but its message is important and every American should read it and take heed If I had to sum it up I would say that he very nearly says the tree of liberty must at times be watered with the blood of patriots but his points have a logic to them He is correct to warn that liberals should not
