Written as "true fiction" The 15% Solution's focuses on the threat of fascism, "American style," posed now by Christian fundamentalism operating within the confines of the Republican party. Its primary purpose is to show how a theocratic authoritarianism can be gradually introduced into any country, even the "world's greatest democracy," and behind a façade of legality, no less. In that sense it follows the tradition established by its major forebears: Jack London's The Iron Heel and Sinclair Lewis' It Can't Happen Here, as if those authors had written those books with 20/20 hindsight.
