It can happen here. “It” is right wing revolution in America. That will never happen here, we assume. But the unimaginable does happen here in three daring counterfactual novels by Jack London, Sinclair Lewis and Philip Roth. Not where or how it was supposed to happen. For the usual suspects, alien ideologues, are nowhere to be seen. Instead, insiders make the revolution. Outsiders, those frightening “others” who have had different names throughout history, do not make it. Insiders do it. In "The Iron Heel", London imagines a proto-fascist Oligarchy that precipitates its overthrow of the elected government by throwing a bomb in the House of Representatives in 1913. "It" happens again in 1936 when President Buzz Windrip shows his true colors as a fascist in "It Can't Happen Here" and again in 1940 when President Charles Lindbergh acts on the same sympathies in "The Plot Against America". These catastrophes accompany a century of war and economic dislocation that are in the history books and help to make the timing of right wing takeovers plausible. Few readers of "The Call of the Wild" know that London was a committed Socialist whose works influenced George Orwell's 1984. Orwell praised The Iron Heel's political prescience, but was less sure of its literary strengths. Nonetheless, the novel is a formidable work of imagination that has been called America's "1984". "It Can't Happen Here" was published just before FDR's second term when the country was in deep depression and Hitler's rise had barely begun. "The Plot Against America" overlaps in time with this novel and takes the reader into the 1940s. All three novels underscore the historical strengths of native right wing movements. Fascism did not happen here, but these novels powerfully evoke its dark potential in American life.

This is a story of intrigue, treachery, murder, and gross incompetence It's fiction -of course - for now. Still, something like this could happen if we are not careful. Donald Trump through guile and luck (is it really luck?) is elected as the 45th President of The United States. Few realized on Inauguration Day that it was going to be the longest Presidency. Follow The Donald as he rules America with his over-sized ego, his "faultless" understanding of issues, his talent for negotiating with world leaders, and his ability to make those classic amazingly great deals he promised during his campaign. After all, The Donald wrote a best-seller on making great deals. Even the new Saudi King, Abdul has read it. This is an often dramatic, exciting, fast-moving tale filled with twists and surprises. There is even some humor - very dark humor. Remember, humor is defined by some as other people's tragedies. Fortunately, the "other people" in this case are fictional. Be careful, it could happen here. CHM ========= "A must read for political buffs.: " - Donald Andrews "Mr. Meyer weaves a very plausidble tale. Thank God it's fictional." - V. Pineda, Barcelona Literary Review "I couldn;t stop reading this fast moving political tale. -- Mike Holidy, Rolling Stonded

In It Could Happen Here, Bruce Judson, author of Go It Alone!, explains why revolution is possible in the United States—and makes the most disturbing case yet for why our economics are leading us inevitably toward a just such a crisis. Underscoring the historically dangerous levels of inequality in our country today, It Could Happen Here “will cause you to think about the risks for a nation divided between haves and have nots.” (Walter Isaacson)
