The Founding Fathers believed that the proper goal of the State was to make men and women free to develop their faculties and to pursue virtue and wisdom. Our Constitution was built around these principles, protecting civil liberties and developing a careful system of checks and balances which protected our freedom from tyranny. Naomi Wolfs latest work,The End of America: A Letter of Warning to a Young Patriotexposes how the escalation of Executive Power has eroded these core values and systems, limiting our Congress to make laws, and our courts to interpret them a scenario that our Founding Fathers foresaw and warned against. Wolf outlines in this citizen call to action, reminiscent of Thomas Paines reveredCommon Sense, the real threats that exist to our civil liberties and explains how working together we can solve the growing threat. The End of America: A Letter of Warning to a Young Patriotis centerpiece to The American Freedom Agenda, a nonpartisan organization of which Naomi Wolf is a founding board member, which asks all Americans to support a Freedom Pledge to support only candidates who favor restoring the pillars of American Liberty. It combines a wide host of partners, united in their belief that when it comes to the Constitution, we are neither conservative nor liberal; we are all Americans.

Naomi Wolf was born in 1962 in San Francisco. She studied at Yale before becoming a Rhodes scholar at New College, Oxford, and working in Edinburgh. The Beauty Myth was published in 1990 and was an international bestseller. This was followed by Fire with Fire, Promiscuities, Misconceptions and The Tree House.
