Radical Son (new edition) by David Horowitz


RADICAL SON: A Generational Odyssey

By David Horowitz

Radical Son: Second Edition by David Horowitz is one of the most compelling and important political memoirs in recent American history - republished after more than twenty years with a new introduction by the author. In a narrative that possesses both remarkable political importance and extraordinary literary power, David Horowitz tells the story of his startling political odyssey from sixties radical to nineties conservative. 

A political document of our times, Radical Son traces three generations of one American family's infatuation with the radical left from the Bolshevik Revolution of 1917 to the collapse of the Marxist empire six decades later. David Horowitz was one of the founders of the New Left and an editor of Ramparts - the magazine that set the intellectual and revolutionary tone for the movement.

In the new edition of Radical Son, you'll learn:

·    The deep divisions that divide our country now began in the Sixties;

·    The violence that tore up our cities this past summer and the coddling of black criminals began in the Sixties. A murder committed by the Black Panthers ended my life in the left; and

·    The leftward shift of the Democrat Party began with the riot that Tom Hayden staged at the 1968 Democrat convention after which he led the anti-American left into the Democrat Party. This left took over the Democrat Party with the election of Barack Obama in 2008.

From his vantage point at the center of the action, he populates Radical Son with vivid portraits of people who made the radical decade, while unmaking America at the same time. This painful and difficult journey from Left to Right has made Horowitz the most hated ex-radical of his generation. In telling his story, he provides not just an intimate personal account of his own transformation, but a scathing moral history of the American left, and a guide to the evolving political conscience of an entire generation.

"David Horowitz’s political pilgrimage from a Sixties radical to a Reagan conservative - and the friends and enemies he has made along the way - makes for a very interesting, very compelling story. Speaking as a conservative: it's much better to have David Horowitz with you than against you. Radical Son demonstrates why."

--William J. Bennett, Author of The Moral Compass

By Judd Dunning

Despite the fact that Americans are more likely to identify as conservative than as liberal in their political ideology, conservatives often find themselves in situations where liberals relentlessly hammer them with insults, accusations, and unfounded assumptions about conservatism. What is a proud conservative to do? The answer is in the new conservative playbook, 13½ Reasons Why NOT to be a Liberal and How to Enlighten Others by Judd Dunning, a definitive guide to persuasive facts and arguments that detail the policies, accomplishments, and often-ignored compassionate nature of the conservative philosophy.

Presented in an easy-to-access format, Judd Dunning's ideological treatise will empower readers not only to hold their own in an argument with a Liberal, but also to change hearts and minds, or at worst, preserve a few more mutually respectful relationships with more ease, clarity, and dignity.

In 13½ Reasons Why NOT to Be a Liberal, conservatives will find the perfect facts and figures to win the debate on all the hot-button issues important to freedom-loving Americans, and will learn how to successfully and intelligently enlighten liberals with these facts and more:

·    Why Big Government fails at almost everything;

·    Why people are inherently unequal;

·    Climate change and real versus junk science;

·    The myth of the GOP as racist;

·    Free speech versus leftist political correctness;

·    How justice does not need an adjective in front of it;

·    That American exceptionalism is not a hate crime;

·    Judeo-Christian values are American values;

·    Every nation secures its borders; and much more!

Based on current and timeless conservative philosophical arguments, this handbook book is tailor-made for right-leaning, independent, or "on the fence" Americans who are both passionate about politics and love being Americans, regardless of who's in office.

"Antifa leftists may still burn this book, but more than a few center-left individuals will read 13½ Reasons Why NOT to Be a Liberal and develop a new respectful understanding of conservatism." --DINESH D’SOUZA

Thought Criminal By Michael Rectenwald


The "1984" of the COVID Era


By Michael Rectenwald

NYU Professor of Liberal Studies, Michael Rectenwald has written the "1984" of the COVID Era: Thought Criminal. In his 2019 book, Google Archipelago: The Digital Gulag and the Simulation of Freedom, Professor Rectenwald argued that the real danger posed by Big Tech is not digital capitalism as such, but leftist authoritarianism. Thought Criminal explores not only big tech, but also social media censorship, media propaganda, the virus, the vaccine, and collectivism. Most importantly, it shows what could happen to a society so eager to comply with tyrannical rules and regulations that defy common sense.

In Thought Criminal, a distinguished Professor of AI-neuroscience and Theory of Mind has dissident thoughts. He differs from acceptable opinion on matters of grave importance to respectable Human Biologicals and the Federation of Pandemos, the global state. Upon confessing his divergent theories to a graduate student assistant, his life is never the same. He is labeled a "Thought Deviationist," among other damning designations. He is arrested by a robot police agent and soon released but remains a covert "Thought Deviationist" living under the constant fear of future arrest, the treachery of friends, and the loss of his identity.

Thought Criminal's "Thought Deviationist" character discovered that the ultimate threat is posed by the Collective Mind and submission to the virus spells the obliteration of the self. Resistance to the virus means living as a fugitive of the law and being forever hunted by robot police agents to be taken in for "treatment."

·    The novel is set in a near-future dystopia where personal robots keep constant surveillance and report any conversations or actions that reflect dissident thinking; where Smart Cities track your every move; where a massive, centralized database, known as Collective Mind, threatens to regulate all thinking and obliterate individual identity.

·    The main character, 48, has lost his prestigious position as professor of the Theory of Mind and AI-Neuroscience at Transhuman University in Santa Cruz, Region of California, after expressing his dissident views about the virus and its role in connecting the neo-cortex of subjects to Collective Mind. This transgression has earned him registration as a Thought Deviationist and Vaccine Resistor, and thus he is hauled in by robot law enforcement agents to the Essential Data complex, which houses the most important processors of Collective Mind.

·    Not simply "a system of control imposed by an independent entity," Collective Mind is a system that is "only possible when a collective becomes complicit in its own subjection and when the subjects impose subjugation upon each other."

The novel treats the possibility, or lack thereof, of retaining one's humanity and individual identity in the face of transhumanism and a technologically enforced collectivism. Think about this in the context of the current state of the world today, in which a disturbing number of the population eagerly complies with useless, authoritarian mask mandates, social distancing, and vaccine compliance, and angrily shames those who do not comply.

Michael Rectenwald has written a thought experiment for our time, the '1984' of the COVID era, where we can step back and view today’s America for what it is: a society infected not by a virus but by collective hysteria. Thought Criminal explores the meaning of individualism in an increasingly collectivist society, where our thoughts are not our thoughts but those infused in us by the media and the Collective Mind, and the very notion of free will becomes a distant memory. This is fiction that makes us think and makes us dream. --Kenneth R. Timmerman
