NOTES FROM THE " Big Agenda" by David Horowitz

Editor's Note:   In anticipation of several hours of travel for a little golf in Mexico (Playa del Carmen) I picked up David Horowitz's new best seller, "The Big Agnenda".  I could not resist sharing a couple excerpts with you before boarding.  I highly recommend it.  It really peels off the layers of "mental illness" that lurks on the "Dark Side".

2. It’s Time to Take the Gloves Off

"THE PROGRESSIVE VISION OF American society as a hierarchy of races, genders, and classes

is delusional and destructive, but it has been the dominant force in America’s political culture for more than half a century. It is the creed of America’s society-shaping institutions—schools and the media—and its party line of political correctness is now the conventional wisdom in America’s boardrooms and courts. How can conservatives and Republicans hope to resist the societal transformation Democrats are bent on achieving? How can they stop a movement that is antidemocratic and socialist and determined to weaken America even further in the face of grave threats from powers in Europe, Asia, and the Middle East "

Middle East? 

Resistance begins with the will to confront the adversary head on. That is the attitude that characterized Donald Trump’s campaign from its inception. But for many conservatives, no-holds-barred, in-your-face brawling is problematic to begin with. Unlike progressives, conservatives are constrained by temperament and precept from engaging in politics as a form of warfare—even though their progressive opponents do so as a matter of course. Conservatives are also realists about human nature and are therefore prone to resignation. Reluctance to go for the jugular and willingness to accept defeat can become a self-fulfilling prophecy. If you are reluctant to fight, you are inevitably headed toward defeat when the other side is relentless and despises you. It is only for those who persist in the battle and never let up that the possibility of changing the result comes into view.
