Ruling Ideas By David Horowitz
The Black Book of the American Left
Volume IX: Ruling Ideas
By David Horowitz
New York Times best-selling author David Horowitz's new book is Ruling Ideas, Volume IX of The Black Book of the American Left, a multi-volume collection of his conservative writings that is the most ambitious effort ever undertaken to define the Left and its agenda. The Black Book of the American Left collects all of Horowitz's writings over the last thirty years - at once a sharp incision to the heart of the Left's agenda; an exploration of routes conservatives might take in response to its permanent assault on America's values and power; and a unique trip log showing the evolving intellectual journey of one of our bravest and most original thinkers.
The previous eight volumes have explored the battlegrounds - the university, racial relations, popular culture, etc. - where the left attempts to "radically transform" America. This ninth and final volume of The Black Book of the American Left is a summary look at the ideas in the bone marrow of the left, the ideas that give it momentum and make this war against America a forever war.
Chief among them is the notion that “equality” must be created by any means necessary. But because disparities and disproportions of talent, intelligence and physical ability are so intrinsic and so basic to the entire human enterprise, creating “equality” requires the violence of social engineering, which is why the utopias of the Left always turn out to be killing fields. The demands for “social justice” by today’s progressives are another version of the demands for equality by yesterday’s Marxist Leninists. Both produce the destruction of human freedom.
Horowitz’s understanding that the agenda of the Left is to wage war against freedom - especially the freedom of individuals to resist its social redeemers and their malign plans - is what led David Horowitz to devote the last forty years of his life - and all nine volumes of The Black Book of the American Left - to opposing this destructive cause.
In Ruling Ideas, you will learn about:
· The fate of the Marxist idea
· Slavery and the modern reparations movement
· America’s second Civil War, “People of Color” and Black Lives Matter
· Identity politics - the antithesis of the American idea
· The irrational treatment of President Trump by the Democrats
· David’s relationship with Christopher Hitchens
