Ship of Fools: How a Selfish Ruling Class Is Bringing America to the Brink of Revolution
Ship of Fools extends the recent run of books that attack the American ruling class as decayed and awful. However it is characterized, as the professional-management elite , the Front Row Kids , or one of many other labels, all these books argue the ruling class is running our country into the ground, and most argue it is stupid and annoying to boot. I certainly agree, and I also tend to agree with the grim prognostication in the subtitle, that revolution is coming—that is, this will end in blood. What this book fails to offer, though, just like all these books, is any kind of possible other solution. Not a word in this book is truly original. As with most current political books, Donald Trump appears often, not as himself, but as a phenomenon, whose rise deserves and requires explanation, and who therefore implicitly frames the book, though the author stops mentioning him about halfway through.
We know where you sleep at night. Why all the hate for Carlson? The funny thing is that Carlson, a lifelong Republican, has drifted leftward on economics and foreign policy in recent years, as seen in his new best-seller, Ship of Fools: How a Selfish Ruling Class Is Bringing America to the Brink of Revolution.

Stanford students are drummed into believing that conservatism is a movement of racists, sexists, xenophobes, intolerants, homophobes, and bigots. A deeper dive into the movement, however, yields context and perspective that not only enriches the mind but the soul as well. The party out of the White House typically reflects on what ideas it should discard and what ideas may carry the vanquished back into the halls of power. This is happening with frantic intensity on the American Left. Will the party fully embrace socialism?
The year began a new era of political populism throughout the developed world. Despite being called every name in the book, and despite over a year of bad predictions, Trump managed to win the White House. Rather than seriously wonder why the New York billionaire with tons of skeletons in his closet managed to win over blue-collar workers, Christian conservatives, and more Latino and black voters than the previous Republican nominee, the American media has doubled and tripled down on calling President Trump a white supremacist, a homophobe, an Islamophobe, etc. Tucker Carlson, the popular Fox News host, has a dire warning for those unwilling to learn the lessons of start listening to the American public or face the prospect of a violent revolution. In Ship of Fools , Carlson highlights the fact that America has dissolved into an oligarchy that only pretends to practice democracy. Many liberal and left-of-center people will refuse to pick up this book.
