The End of America is a 2008 documentary film directed by Annie Sundberg and Ricki Stern, who also directed The Devil Came on Horseback and The Trials of Darryl Hunt. It is an indictment of the significant policy changes made in last eight years under the Bush Administration. Based upon the best-selling book of the same name by Naomi Wolf (author of The Beauty Myth), the film makes the case that American democracy is being threatened. Wolf investigates parallels between the state of our civil liberties and those of dictatorships, fascist regimes, and other once-free societies. Wolf discusses a number of deeply unsettling similarities - from the use of unofficial paramilitary organizations and secret prisons to the targeted suspension of the rule of law.
The End of America details the ten steps a country takes when it slides toward fascism.
