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
“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.
