Levin spent 16 months working on the book after he saw a rise in hatred aimed at America, freedoms, and free speech. He read scores of books on hot-buttons issues such as critical race theory and climate change while preparing to pen his own, with the ultimate goal of figuring out where the hatred of the nation came from and why it’s spreading.
“I actually didn’t decide on the title of my book until about three months before I handed it in. I kept going back and forth on different titles and then I realized, what the hell is all this? This is an Americanized form of Marxism tailored for our society and tailored for our way of life,” Levin told Fox News.
“That’s why I called it ‘American Marxism,’” he said.
