Publisher Description

The Plot to Change America exposes the myths that help identity politics perpetuate itself. This book reveals what has really happened, explains why it is urgent to change course, and offers a strategy to do so. Though we should not fool ourselves into thinking that it will be easy to eliminate identity politics, we should not overthink it, either. Identity politics relies on the creation of groups and then on giving people incentives to adhere to them. If we eliminate group making and the enticements, we can get rid of identity politics.

The first myth that this book exposes is that identity politics is a grassroots movement, when from the beginning it has been, and continues to be, an elite project. For too long, we have lived with the fairy tale that America has organically grown into a nation gripped by victimhood and identitarian division; that it is all the result of legitimate demands by minorities for recognition or restitutions for past wrongs. The second myth is that identity politics is a response to the demographic change this country has undergone since immigration laws were radically changed in 1965. Another myth we are told is that to fight these changes is as depraved as it is futile, since by 2040, America will be a minority-majority country, anyway. This book helps to explain that none of these things are necessarily true.

“Michael Gonzalez shows us that the idea of ‘identity’ did not just innocently emerge. It was invented for the purpose of dividing citizens into groups to be used as political pawns in a plot to change America. Identity politics turns citizens into ‘innocent victims’ in need of governmental carve-outs, and promotes brokers who do their bidding. Gonzalez lays out just how this madness can be brought to an end. A very timely book. Highly recommended.”

— Joshua Mitchell, author of American Awakening 


  • “Mike Gonzalez is a tremendous voice for conservatism. In his new book, The Plot to Change America, Mike irrefutably wrecks the identity politics arguments of the political Left, which have been tearing the country apart for years.”

    — Ben Shapiro, #1 New York Times bestselling author
  • “Persuasive and clarifying…Gonzalez reminds Americans of all races and ethnicities that we are better off choosing individual agency, pride, and success over a culture of victimhood.”

    — Ying Ma, author of Chinese Girl in the Ghetto
