Product Description

Synopsis

Sinisterists were Fascists, Comunists and Nazis and are today's Leftists "Why trust people who mock truth and who deny that lying is bad? Why believe, Stalin and Hitler, whose holocausts surpass mere nightmare, when these monstrous liars each claimed to be polar opposites? Why trust them or their disciples about anything? Why trust evil?" "Sinisterism is the vicious system of Mao, Mussolini, Marxists and Nazis. It is the alibi for holocausts, the excuse for senseless cruelty, the intolerant faith of a godless religion whose rites are nihilism and destruction." "Its disciples hate Jews, hate Christians, hate America, hate Israel, and hate the Author of Creation, and hate normal, decent people, but they love power, and they will do anything for the sake of power." -- the author

Walker believes there are two kinds of people - those who seek power over others by any means, and those who just want to live their lives without lording it over others. By examining politics he comes to the conclusion that terms like Left and Right or Reactionary and Revolutionary are incorrect and deceptive.
This is exactly like Ayn Rand's distinction of collectivism versus individualism, where all collectivist ideologies like Communism, Fascism and Nazism seek to subdue the individual to the state. Because the religion of Jews and Christians is based on moral and ethical principles that include respect for the individual, the aforementioned collectivist ideologies are its natural enemy.
Walker thus defines Rand's "collectivism" as Sinisterism, the secular religion of the lie. He demonstrates how these power lusting beliefs use the lie to deceive and oppress, with reference to George Orwell and the Soviet Union. He explores the many similarities between the European dictatorships of the 20th century and reveals the extent to which history has been distorted by a false dichotomy between Left and Right.
National Socialism and Communism were very similar despite the superficial differences. Nazi Germany and the USSR were in fact allies and divided up the countries of Eastern Europe between them before Hitler broke the pact by invading the Soviet Union.
Next, Walker looks at the history of Judaism and Christianity from Roman times up to the Second World War. The decline in Christian belief from the late 19th century onwards played a part in opening the door to the rise of collectivist philosophy in the 20th.

Sinister is the Latin root word for left. The Collins English Dictionary defines it as "located on the left side...suggesting evil or threatening harm".

In this book Walker argues that there is no such thing as a political spectrum running from far-left to far-right. All totalitarianism is essentially leftist. There is no `right`. There is conservatism and sinisterism.

Nazis, Communists, Marxists, Fascists and modern Leftists all share the same pseudo-religious mindset - a secular religion of the lie. They are all power cults. These `Sinisterists' hate Judeo-Christianity, hate America and hate Israel. Sinisterists are God-haters and see submission to a Blessed Creator as placing limits on their own temporal power.

By contrast Walker finds conservatives are normal people who neither seek nor desire power but wish to live their lives in peace and freedom without subscribing to the sort of extremist power politics that poisoned the 20th Century.

An interesting and thought provoking read let down by numerous typographical and grammatical errors which make it a difficult read in parts - hence four stars and not the five I would have otherwise given.

Collectivist power cults versus Judeo-Christianity 5 Mar 2006
By Pieter Uys - Published on Amazon.com
Walker believes there are two kinds of people - those who seek power over others by any means, and those who just want to live their lives without lording it over others. By examining politics he comes to the conclusion that terms like Left and Right or Reactionary and Revolutionary are incorrect and deceptive.

This is exactly like Ayn Rand's distinction of collectivism versus individualism, where all collectivist ideologies like Communism, Fascism and Nazism seek to subdue the individual to the state. Because the religion of Jews and Christians is based on moral and ethical principles that include respect for the individual, the aforementioned collectivist ideologies are its natural enemy.

He demonstrates how these power lusting beliefs use the lie to deceive and oppress, with reference to George Orwell and the Soviet Union. He explores the many similarities between the European dictatorships of the 20th century and reveals the extent to which history has been distorted by a false dichotomy between Left and Right.

National Socialism and Communism were very similar despite the superficial differences. Nazi Germany and the USSR were in fact allies and divided up the countries of Eastern Europe between them before Hitler broke the pact by invading the Soviet Union.

Next, Walker looks at the history of Judaism and Christianity from Roman times up to the Second World War. The decline in Christian belief from the late 19th century onwards played a part in opening the door to the rise of collectivist philosophy in the 20th.

Walker's discussion of the similarity between Islamism, Nazism and other extremist religious ideologies is particularly enlightening in view of the current world situation. The author does a splendid job of revealing why the collectivist power cults have such an intense hatred for the Judeo-Christian belief system.

He also deals with the founding of America, the Puritans and their moral foundations on Judaic and Christian roots. The book is timely and valuable for these strange times that resemble the 1930s. It now appears that the secular European welfare state has merely been a type of Sinisterism Lite.

After a brief window of freedom, Russia is sliding into fascism and allying itself with enemies of the West like Iran and Hamas. In Europe, there is now a 5th column of Islamists, and the trouble has started with the murder of Theo van Gogh, the 2005 riots in France and the Danish cartoon uproar.

How will Europe respond to this existential threat? In my opinion there is a real danger that the continent might embrace a new form of Sinisterism, obscured under the mask of a Christian Renaissance. At this stage, Red State USA and other parts of the Anglosphere are the last vestiges of Judeo-Christian values, but for how long?

Other books that cast more light on various aspects of Walker's argument include Deliver Us From Evil by Ravi Zacharias, People Of The Lie by M Scott Peck, Unholy Alliance by David Horowitz, History Of The Jews by Paul Johnson, Worldperfect by Ken Spiro, The Dragons Of Expectation by Robert Conquest and The West And The Rest by Roger Scruton.

Makes sense of nonsense 26 Jan 2006
By B. W. Walker - Published on Amazon.com
At last, a book that debunks the whole silly idea of a "Right" wing and a "Left" wing! What do people think that the "National Socialist German Workers Party" was anyway? Does that sound like a "Right" wing movement? The quotes from people who wrote about Nazis, Marxists and Fascists at the time is especially interesting, as is the very revealing history of the friendly relations that Christians and Jews have had throughout most of history (not what you learn in school these days!)

For the lack of a proof reader... 25 Oct 2006
By M. Burleson - Published on Amazon.com
I agree with the positive responses here, but this book would be much easier to read if it had been proof read before it was published. It is an effort to have to reconstruct sentences and phrases while one reads. That makes it seem a less serious work than it actually is, and it must make the author's academic critics lick their chops. It is important to have this well researched information available. It refutes the revisionist history that has replaced information and knowledge with slogans that float in the vacuous remnants of our culture. Whittaker Chambers brings the reality of sinisterism home, if you haven't read "Witness". If you have read that, you will always recognize the mark of the Sinisterists as they continue to demonstrate in the streets of our nation.

BEWARE OF REVISIONISM, HIDE YOUR BOOKS 20 April 2007
By Fox Wijoro - Published on Amazon.com
I'm sure this author would love to see many books burned (not the King James Bible of course). That said, I find the book a bit interesting because it gives some insight into "conservative" ideology. I've read plenty of Marxist literature, studied the rise of fascism in Europe and observed the decline of the left in America since Regan, but I didn't reach the same conclusion to which Mr. Walker reaches. I'm specially puzzled by his inability to see within the "conservative" ideology for any resemblance to fascism. This book seems like just another ways for this radical "conservatives" to muddy the waters of debate and politics. It's sad to see how we are eager to work together to create the most advance technology for our phones but fail miserably to work together to create real political debate in order to solve our pressing issues. The truth is: if you read Marxist literature (which by the way is a philosophy and a theory on how society could work; and has several different branches that differ in many fundamental ways), if you read fascist literature, and if you read chronicles from the countries which these two philosophies clashed like in Spain, Italy, Turkey, to name a few, YOU will reach a different conclusion that Mr. Walker. A conclusion that most peer-reviewed writers in countless academic journals have reached; a conclusion that many people that suffered from fascist regimes like in Spain and Italy reached; a conclusion that different branches of Marxism reached during the rule of Lenin and Stalin in the USSR; in the end the conclusions that those people reached was simple: something that this writer fails miserably to see. That in politics there isn't only two sides left or right. The world of politics is not like the US that only has two major parties (which are not that different from each other). The world of politics is a rainbow of parties, ideologies, philosophies, beliefs, issues and many more things. A simplistic view of politics only helps those that want to convince you of something with little effort, and with little chance for debate. Beware of this book, but read it. Once you're done, move on to a Marxist book, maybe brush up on your World War II history, and take an interest in Middle Eastern culture. Once you do, you'll recognize those mudding the waters of debate, you'll be ready to truly help change the world for the better.
