Ship of Fools: How a Selfish Ruling Class Is Bringing America to the Brink of Revolution is a nonfiction political book by Fox News host, Tucker Carlson. Published by Simon & Schuster, Ship of Fools was released on October 2, 2018, before that year's midterm elections, and entered number one on The New York Times Best Seller list.

Carlson applies the allegory given in Plato's Republic to the modern United States: the American Ship of State has been commandeered by an incompetent crew (the current political and economic elite ruling class) who are oblivious or contemptuous to the needs of the passengers (the citizens) and intolerant of criticism. He ties this to the idea that the United States is ill-headed by these out-of-touch elites. Carlson does not restrict his definition of the elite to liberal members of Congress, but includes politicians of both the Republican and Democratic parties, neoconservative pundits, predominately Bill Kristol, and modern entrepreneurs, such as Mark Zuckerberg and Jeff Bezos, who he blames for decimating the American middle class. Quickly summarizing the premise of the book, Carlson has said it simply amounts to: "Why did Trump get elected?"
