Conservative Bookshelf

The Conservative Bookshelf

No serious student of American history and politics can be considered well-informed without a solid grounding in works like these.  The list is somewhat arbitrary.  We think most Conservatives would call this a fair sampling of modern and classic Conservative thought. 

Liberal Fascism: The Secret History of the American Left.   by Jonah Goldberg.  From the French Revolution to MoveOn.org, Goldberg shows how social movements and governments ruled by the Left nearly always devolve into Fascism. 

The Real George Washington.* by Jay A. Parry.  There is no better model of honesty, courage, honor, and sacrifice, throughout our history, than George Washington.  Parry gives us an excellent biography, one of the best ever.

The Real Thomas Jefferson.* by Andres W. Allison.   Another title in the American Classics series, Allison has captured the life, times, and thoughts of one of America’s most beloved presidents.  Buy the set of three Real books and get a discount, along with many weeks of pleasant, inspiring reading.  

The Real Benjamin Franklin.*  by Andrew W. Allison.  Everyone knows Franklin, the publisher, diplomat, writer, inventor, humorist, scientist, abolitionist, and philosopher.  He was a Renaissance Man whose achievements are finally getting their due in this great book.

 The Federalist Papers.*  by Alexander Hamilton, James Madison, and John Jay.

Learn the true meaning of the Constitution and the true intent of its authors.  Check out Madison’s description of the dangers of “factions” (what we call “special interests” today).  His article, and each of the newspaper columns that became The Federalist Papers, are as instructive today as they were the day they were written 224 years ago.  

 The 5000 Year Leap: A Miracle that Changed the World.* by W. Cleon Skousen.
Skousen’s classic exposition of the Constitution, written 30 years ago, has become a modern-day best seller.  His analysis of the Judeo-Christian roots of the new American government is exceptional.  

 Free to Choose: A Personal Statement.  by Milton and Rose Friedman.  Classic free market economics from two of its most brilliant theorists.  Read this very readable book and you’ll understand the simple beauty and astounding effectiveness of the marketplace.  You’ll also understand why Milton Friedman so justly deserved the Nobel Prize he was awarded for his work.   

 Basic Economics 4th Ed: A Common Sense Guide to the Economy.  by Thomas Sowell.  Sowell is the Milton Friedman of the 21st century.  Not many can explain the American economy, and the harmful effects of government meddling, as well as Thomas Sowell.  

 The Unmaking of a Mayor.   by William F. Buckley.  Its difficult to pick out “the best” of Buckley’s many great books, but his recounting of his run for Mayor of New York City, is certainly a favorite.  Buckley ran a principled, ideological campaign, filled with rare honesty and refreshing humor.  What would we give to have politicians acting like this today?

 Wild Swans.   by Jung Chang.  The true story of three generations of Chinese women, from Kuomintang times, through the reign of Mao, to today.  Forty million dead, killed for a theory.  And some Americans still "go carryin' round pictures of Chairman Mao.

 The Politically Incorrect Guide to Islam (and the Crusades).   by Robert Spencer.  Some important things you thought you knew just may be wrong.  And it might be much worse than you thought.  A great read, long overdue. 

 

And, the best Conservative bookshelves also have a generous mix of works by Glenn Beck, Ann Coulter, Laura Ingraham, Mark Levin, Dinesh D’Souza, Russell Kirk, Bernard Goldberg, David Limbaugh, Michelle Malkin, Andrew Breitbart, Sean Hannity, F. A. Hayek, Mark Steyn, and a host of others too numerous to mention.  If we left out your favorite Conservative author, sorry.   We’ll be happy to include them if you’ll mention something at our next general meeting.    

* Copies available at 912 2nd Tuesday meetings.

 

Communist Game Book - 100 years after

In May of 1919 Allied Forces obtained a copy of the Communist Rules for Revolution.

A century later, does this sound familiar?

A. Corrupt the young, get them interested in sex not religion. Make them superficial, and destroy individual responsibility.

B. Get control of all means of publicity by:

  1.  Getting the peoples mind off of the government by focusing their attention on athletics, sexy books and plays and other trivialities.
  2. Dividing the people into hostile groups by constantly harping on controversial matters of no importance.
  3. Destroying the people’s faith in their natural leaders by holding them up to contempt, ridicule and obloquy.
  4. Always preach true democracy, but seize power as fast and as ruthlessly as possible.
  5. Encouraging governmental extravagance, destroy its credit, produce fear of inflation with rising prices and general discontent.
  6. Foment unnecessary strikes in vital industries, encourage civil disorders and foster lenient and soft attitude on the part of government toward such disorders.
  7. Specious arguments, cause the breakdown of the old moral virtues, honesty, sobriety, confidence, faith in the pledged word, ruggedness.

C. Cause the registration of all firearms on some pretext, with a view toward confiscating them and leaving the population helpless.
