Product Description

Review

Sean's tract has aroused my interest because of its unconventional revelations about English society and government. He tells us about the seamy side of English attempts to enforce multiculturalism which the American media hardly ever cover. -- Paul Gottfried, Takimag, September 2007

Sean Gabb, successor to the late Chris Tame as Director of the Libertarian Alliance, is very much a man of the Right: a composite of Burkean and Little Englander, roughly equivalent to the Old Right or paleolibertarians on this side of the Atlantic. In his critique of managerialism and the corporate state, however, he has much to say about globalization and corporate rule, among many other things, that left-libertarians will find of benefit. -- Kevin Carson, November 2007

Product Description

An Anglican Bishop nearly arrested for stating Church doctrine. Villagers actually arrested for making fun of gypsies. Museums stripped of “imperialist” symbols. This is life in the England of today.

“Political correctness gone mad” some will say. Not so, says Sean Gabb. In this book, he explains how England in particular, and the English-speaking world in general, have been conquered from within.

We face a new ruling class made up of the student radicals of the 1960s and 70s. Now in power, they are creating in their own behaviour all the corruption and bigotry and hypocrisy that they falsely alleged against the liberal democratic rulers they have replaced.

This being so, the leading writers of the “New Left”—Antonio Gramsci, Louis Althusser, and Michel Foucault—become highly relevant for conservatives and libertarians. They are relevant not because their analysis of liberal democracy was correct, but because it explains what their disciples are trying to do.

Before we can change the world, we need to understand it. This book helps towards that understanding, and suggests what needs to be done to give England back to its people.

More About the Author

Sean Gabb is a writer and broadcaster and academic. He is the author of around fifteen books, which include seven novels and three volumes of poetry. He has been commercially translated into Italian, Spanish, Greek, Slovak, Hungarian and Chinese.

He joined the Libertarian Alliance in 1979. He became the Director in 2006, shortly before the death of its founder Chris Tame.

Gabb is for the legalization of drugs and is an opponent of multiculturalism and mass immigration as a political policy. He sees no harm in gay marriage or gay adoption, but defends the need to be able to speak in open criticism of homosexuality as part of his stance for freedom of speech from political interference. He is an isolationist in foreign affairs (he is as much anti-American as Eurosceptic) and an advocate of the widest social and economic liberty. He has written in support of the monarchy and House of Lords, in defence of the rights of holocaust deniers and in enabling a time limitation law on the charge of child abuse.

Gabb is controversial to some because of his views, for example: "the Commission for Racial Equality and all similar organisations should be abolished, and their records burned." Gabb explained this by often likening the British government to a police state, saying, "Every so often, someone stands up and tells us what benefits we have had from diversity. Such may be, but we must also consider that part of the price has been a police state. In this country, we have severe restrictions on freedom of speech, on freedom of association and on freedom of contract - all in the name of good race relations." He compared the government to a police state as far back as 1989, when he wrote, "The Thatcher Government has brought into being the full coercive apparatus of a police state."

Regarding freedom of speech, Gabb has written: "It is no business of the State to tell people what they can and cannot think. Our bodies are our own. Our minds are our own. What we do with them is our business." He has also said that the government "should cut benefits, taxes and regulation, and leave people alone. The people will do the rest." Gabb is against the European Union. He has said of immigration: "I do not necessarily object if people want to come to this country to look for a new life. I do object if they want this at my expense - at my expense as a tax payer, and at the expense of the constitutional rights which are my birthright."

In favour of free markets, Gabb has taken a position against limited liability corporations on that basis that they shield shareholders from their debt obligations, representing a state subsidy. He said in an Oxfam debate that their creation was "one of the greatest legislative mistakes of the 19th century. Their existence is based on a separation of ownership from control. The owners are released from all responsibility."

The above is adapted from his Wikipedia article. A more informative entry will be supplied when he feels more inspired. In the meantime, please feel welcome to explore a site that contains just over a million words of broadly political writings.

5.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding 30 April 2009
Format:Paperback
This is available as a free pdf download. I spent an hour reading the first half of the pdf and have decided I MUST buy the book, if only to pass on to friends when I have finished. Sean Gabb has done the research to justify all I've been thinking since I left school in '86!

5.0 out of 5 stars Gabb the revolutionary 2 Aug 2007
Format:Paperback
This is a short work, of 106 pages, excluding the covers, and, of those, original content is to be found on pages 5 to 89. The other pages are taken up with a table of contents, an index and a couple of articles recycled from Gabb's other writings. Those who read only the back cover and the first dozen pages might be inclined to put the work aside as yet another fringe pamphlet of the "why oh why?" variety, listing the grumbles about modern Britain which could be found any day in conservative newspaper blogs. Tony Blair, Polly Toynbee, politically correct Chief Constables, the BBC: all the familiar bogeymen (should that be bogeypersons) are taken out to be shuddered over. Persevere, this reviewer urges potential readers. Make it to chapter five, page 53, and experience the sudden change of gear under the heading of "What is to be done?" Was Gabb alluding to Lenin's work of the same name? He doesn't let on. The effect, however, is to stiffen the sinews of his readers, for here is a revolutionary programme. For the rest of the book, which after all is not far away, he offers a tantalising glimpse of what a sovereign parliament of England might yet achieve. Gabb admits in the end the unlikelihood of his vision ever coming to pass, and is reduced to asking for money. The effect is rather like listening to a musical tone poem. There is a short message, uplifting and easily digested, and when the last cadences have died away, one is left with a sense of loss. On that basis, buy the book. Anyone prepared to pay ten pounds or more for a CD, offering, say, another interpretation of the Second Horn Concerto of Richard Strauss, can afford the 9.99 for Gabb's work. Here is a final, one hopes, constructive criticism: the index as it stands is almost useless. Read more ›

5.0 out of 5 stars Understanding Cultural Marxism 2 Nov 2012
By Franklin Hilliard - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Sean Gabb doesn't use the word Cultural Marxism when he details what the ruling class is currently doing to the public, but that's what he's describing. This slim volume gives an excellent picture of a very dark present; one that most people don't realize is happening. I recommend this book to anyone who wonders if all the little indignities the government is constantly cooking up for us are linked together in some way. Gabb has a solution for big government that will bring a smile to your face; cut it in half. If you're fed up with Obama, and big government, this is the book for you.
