5.0 out of 5 stars Freedom Is Slavery 14 Feb 2014
By Judah Levi - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition
David Horowitz's excellent insights into the 'progressive' mind comes from growing up with Communists as parents and believing everything they stood for - until he grew up. As much as many try to hide it, there is nothing new about the 'progressive' movement. It is the same old and tired commune of socialism that has been tried many times in history, and always fails miserably.

This edition of the Black Book on the American Left brings up the history of the 'progressives' to detail these failures. Young people today may actually think the term "progressive" is new - it is not. Regressive may be a better name than progressive when it comes to the current leftist ideology. The "1984" terminology the left uses does not hide this fact.

Horowitz's books never fail to stimulate discussion, and it is a very important discussion for the future direction of the US. Everyone will benefit from reading this book.

4.0 out of 5 stars An interesting balance to the constant message of the political left 15 Mar 2014
By Andre - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
David's writings are prolific and prone to much repetition. Occasionally he relies on his memory, as we all do, for some facts that a little research reveals to be slightly off, but in the main his work hits the target. And for that, he must be continually demonized by the left in order to prevent people from actually reading him. He is a thoughtful critic of the left, and therefore dangerous to read.

Like Whitaker Chambers, he has chosen the personally difficult path of leading a life that he knows entails constant public humiliation. Yet he heroically perseveres.

I give this book four stars since I reserve five stars for books I know I will fully reread. However, I have highlighted passages throughout that I will return to because he has a way of elegantly articulating key insights with extreme economy.

Recommended for those who want to get a survey of his thought without having read his other books.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Truth shall set you free! 8 Mar 2014
By Gipper1254 - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Educating ourselves about the true history of the American 20th century will lead us to once again recall the infamous quote,
(attributed to Churchill) “Show me a young Conservative and I'll show you someone with no heart. Show me an old Liberal and I'll show you someone with no brains.”

David Horowitz was there, and not just there but an ideologue and true believer! He was educated into the "whys" of the radicals who are now resurgent under Obama. The truth he proclaims is an embarrassment to the typical, ignorant liberal and a threat to those who also know the truth of what they're up to!

I also recommend to Tricky Nicky and others of his ilk, "Students for a Democratic Society: A Graphic History"
by Harvey Pekar (hardly a conservative!) but very revealing and honest by another one "who was there!"
5.0 out of 5 stars Horowitz is the best 5 Oct 2014

Some have criticized this books because it repeats articles. OK, fine, if you have been following Horowitz. But I just discovered him a few months ago. So, I can read him on the way to work on the subway with my Kindle instead of hunting down every article. I wouldn't even know where to find most of them. Works for me.

I didn't realize how much my knowledge of past events has been corrupted by the MSM. This man refreshes my memory of past events life Vietnam and moves me to see things from a better perspective. His work is well-researched. There are facts never surfaced by MSM.

I think he is the best writer about the left I have ever read, but then, he was a "red diaper baby," grew up to love freedom and reject leftist theology. I love this man. He is the best. May he live to 200.

5.0 out of 5 stars A book to be read out loud while on a long road trip with a car full of teenagers. 25 July 2014
By linda jam - Published on
A young female friend is murdered by the Black Panthers and so begins David Horowitz's journey from avid Lefty to conservative champion. Its a harrowing tale of shattered beliefs that eventually gives way to apostasy. While, David Horowitz gives a detailed account of his transformation, he also instructs the reader on the philosophy of the left and the horrors it has brought to millions of innocent people so it can achieve its impossible dream of social justice and equality whether we like it not. Most books I read alone, but not this one. On a very long journey, with husband and a car full of teenagers, I opened up David Horowitz's book and read until i could not read anymore. Surprisingly, not one protest was uttered. They listened and learned.
