Is US democracy under threat from within? Third-wave feminist and author of the best selling Beauty Myth not only believes the US is dangerously looking down the path of fascism but in her latest book Give Me Liberty: A Handbook for American Revolutionaries she argues that Americans should become "democratic commandos".

Among her many suggestions: Amend the US Constitution to permit national referendums on issues such as whether or not to keep troops in Iraq.

But can that form of democracy really work? And is that type of individual activism realistic in a complex multi-cultural society?

On Tuesday's Riz Khan we ask controversial author, activist and feminist Naomi Wolf about the future of America and whether or not its everyday citizens can make a difference.
