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,

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. It explains the nature of the enemy and how it
has so far carried all before it. And it outlines a set of strategies for
the comprehensive defeat of that enemy.
Every battle fought so far for liberal democracy has been lost. Even so,
the war remains uncertain.
