SPECIAL Global Gulag Book Review

American Amnesia the Liberal Case for Government

The book, American Amnesia by Jacob S. Hacker and Paul Pierson is a pathetic attempt to distort history to support a psychopathic adoration for the merits of massive government. The theme of the dissertation is the rejection of the Thomas Jefferson axiom, “The Government is best when it governs least.” For this duo of academic establishment apologists, the Twentieth century under Woodrow Wilson and Franklin Delano Roosevelt was a great success. Coming out of the Yale citadel and the bedlam known as Berkeley, these two mentally challenged government sycophants are a pristine example why engagement with such progressive professors is a journey into the warped minds of historic irrationality.

The unphilosophical majority among men are the ones most helplessly dependent on their era's dominant ideas. In times of crises these men need the guidance of some kind of theory; but, being unfamiliar with the field of ideas, they do not know that alternatives to the popular theories are possible. They know only what they have always been taught.

- Leonard Peikoff



The Ayn Rand Institute

As much as I value Rand and her insights, I part company when she rejects God as the source and progenitor of our moral codes and laws. I don't find any fundamental conflict between the individual and the teachings in the gospel. Those aspects that may be explained as socialistic influences should be viewed as the responsibilities of the individual to God himself and His plan for our proper conduct to our neighbors. Rand was not touched by Faith. A true shame. For how much more valid would her message have been if she was touched by the Spirit . . . .




The West is dying. Collapsing birth rates in Europe and the U.S., coupled with population explosions in Asia, Africa and Latin America, are set to cause cataclysmic shifts in world power, as unchecked immigration swamps and polarizes every Western society and nation.

Justice for alterity: A review of Moral Spaces and Why I Am Not a Secularist by KATHY PURNELL

How the West was lost


"The Death of the West," former presidential candidate Patrick J. Buchanan outlines his belief that Western culture is dying out with the European population. Drawing on U.N. population projections, recent U.S. census figures and expert policy studies, Buchanan takes a cold, hard look at the decay of Europe and America and the decline of Western culture.

Progressivism: A Primer on the Idea Destroying America by James Ostrowski


Ostrowski doesn’t shy away from the fact that the majority of the voting public supports progressive programs in overwhelming numbers even with their dismal results. Ostrowski explains that this is the obvious result of over 100 years of a progressive worldview being hammered into our minds from our early years in government schools to later years in life where we are subjected to the progressive echo chamber of politics and the media.

Perpetual War for Perpetual  Peace:
How We Got to Be So Hated
by Gore Vidal


We are, as George the Younger tells us, "at war," and having unpopular opinions during times of war is likely to get one shouted down, or worse.
Fortunately, the War on Terror isn't a real war; it is a "new kind of war," otherwise its critics might find themselves in jail, as did critics of Lincoln's and Wilson's wars, never mind that pesky First Amendment.
Yet the chilling effect is real, so real that when Gore Vidal, America's greatest living man of letters, weighed in on the War on Terror, not even his friends at The Nation would publish him.

Government by Deception
by Jan Lamprecht


Prince Charles once said that political correctness is "intellectual communism." He is right. Indeed, I believe that political correctness is the creation of the communist psychological warriors as they try to play mind-games with Westerners. Political correctness is a way of slowly driving people towards communism. Part of the game is aimed at discrediting the true anti-communist elements in society so that nobody listens to them...

The Wendy McElroy Interview
By John Hawkins

Wendy McElroy: Ifeminists.com fills a void for information on individualist feminism. It offers a database of over two thousand URLs that lead to news items, commentary, organizations, etc. It provides a nexus where a community can grow on the Bulletin Board and the email lists, as well as a place for people to "drop by" every morning for the daily news on the front page. Moreover, the "information" section gives the fundamentals of ifeminism. It fills a need.

Rape Culture Hysteria: Fixing the Damage Done to Men and Women by Wendy McElroy


Rape Culture Hysteria: Fixing the Damage Done to Men and Women offers a comprehensive overview and debunking of the "rape culture" myth that has devastated campuses and is spilling into Main Street America. An ideological madness is grotesquely distorting North America's view of sexuality. The book applies sanity to the claims that men are natural rapists and our culture encourages sexual violence. 


Read the best books first, or you may not have a chance to read them at all.

Henry David Thoreau


Compare Prices on New & Used College Textbooks

Read not to contradict and confute; nor to believe and take for granted; nor to find talk and discourse; but to weigh and consider. Some books are to be tasted, others to be swallowed, and some few to be chewed and digested: that is, some books are to be read only in parts, others to be read, but not curiously, and some few to be read wholly, and with diligence and attention.

- Francis Bacon
