by RW Solon III A New Dawn is a picture book that examines the way we think and behave as a society and as a country. Since the 1960s, the popular culture in America has been in a downhill spiral. It has gotten louder, less congenial, and more vulgar and brazen as time goes on. It programs and conditions our young for a lifetime of mediocrity and failure. This book suggests a dangerous slide toward totalitarianism as people continue to focus on nothing but self-gratification and the trivial choosing to delegate their thinking and responsibilities to others and the government. A New Dawn reflects the frustration of the average American who sees his or her country as a place to make others richer while he runs in place, barely able to get by. This book is intended to foster or encourage a new awareness among our citizenry to resist the popular media and culture and to view the government with healthy suspicion and skepticism. A New Dawn encourages the reader to make our country a better place by resisting the popular culture and living their own lives, not the lives the media or the government want them to live.
