What the books are about, and why I wrote them:

I began writing Enemies Foreign And Domestic in 2000, after too many years of watching our constitutional republic morphing into a police state. These novels, based upon nearly a half century of carefully studying historical patterns, are my attempt to shine a light forward in time. My goal is to warn my compatriots that we are inescapably losing our freedom, one ratchet-click at a time.

The Muslim terror attacks on 9-11 kicked the process into high gear. But instead of new laws targeting our actual enemies--radical Islamists bent on the global spread of their Sharia Law nightmare--the new police powers were aimed equally at all Americans. Projecting forward, the inevitable outcome will be to turn the United States into a dictatorship--the USSA, if you will.

The federal government, under the rubric of fighting a generalized terror threat, has for many years been providing local police departments with high-grade military weapons, equipment and training. The quid-pro-quo for this federal largesse is unquestioning local cooperation with federal law enforcement agencies, turning thousands of local police SWAT teams into force multipliers for burgeoning federal police power. In the name of fighting a murky and undefined "war on terror," we have allowed the creation of a militarized national police force, something which our Founding Fathers explicitly warned us against and tried their best to prevent.

During the same period, our debt-based economy has nearly reached the bitter end of the fiat-currency road. It is only a matter of time until America experiences an economic crisis on the level of what is currently taking place in Greece, or even far worse. If and when federal entitlements, food stamp payments, housing allotments and all the rest are curtailed, I believe our major urban areas will explode in riots beyond anything America experienced in the 1960s. This will cause a breakdown in the national distribution of food, fuel and other commodities necessary to sustain life. At that point, some form of martial law will be put into effect, and our newly-militarized national police forces, along with active-duty military units, will be called upon to "restore order." In so doing, the last nails will be hammered into the coffin containing our legacy of American freedom.

Obviously, I don't desire to see this happen, but if such an outcome is preordained, I want at least to shine a beacon into the future. My goal is to provide my readers with some possible alternatives that will be less horrible than the worst-case scenarios, which otherwise shall be arrived at by chance and happenstance.

This is why I prefer to write what I call semi-dystopian novels, set in the near future. The post-apocalyptic genre has been beaten to death, and life in the rubble at a bare survival level provides few practical lessons. To me, the slide is more instructive than the post-collapse period. The often-repeated historical process of economic collapse and the loss of freedom is what interests me the most, and that is why I am driven to write these novels. I hope that you enjoy them, and that you gain some insights which might prove of value during the tumultuous years ahead.

I read his first one, and really liked it. Favorite character was Phil Carson.

I intend to get his others and read them.

Another book I would recommend is " Malon Labe ", by Boston T. Party. I think you will really like it. You can find it at Javelin Press. If you get it, look for the character Harold Krassney.

If you do get it, let me know what you think.

Regards

I highly recommend all these books. I read them all when they first came out.

In the entire history of the world,the only nations that had to build walls to keep their own citizens from leaving were those with leftist governments.

I recall that I finally got to read The Turner Diaries and was disappointed that they were much less interesting than other similar books. I finally decided it was more silly than scandalous.

In many respects, Turner Diaries is the granddaddy of all these apocalyptic novels.

What does the Turner Diaries have to do with Matt's books?

Granted,I have never read the Turner's diaries,so I am asking.

They have the same gritty narrative style. And plenty of racial/semitic/homophobic themes. And some very outrageous language. When they march the hordes of foreigners, homosexuals and Jews down the interstate to a valley from which none emerge, it's lingo for an American Holocaust. That's right before Israel gets nuked by multiple foreign enemies, including America. The author of this steaming heap was some neo-Nazi, apparently getting paid to write it by some Austrian neo-Nazi types, and he has since repudiated his own work. At the urging of various groups who combat antisemitism, as you would expect. Funny how they manage to wring confessions and abrupt conversions out of some people that they wish to make an example of. It is, admittedly, a very effective way of twisting arms.

Thanks! I knew there must have been some good reason why I had never read it.
