5.0 out of 5 stars Reality Bites, 26 Oct. 2013
By 
Patrick Mullane (Cork, Ireland) - See all my reviews
(REAL NAME)   
Overall an excellent and engaging read by the author. The topic is from the Conservative point of view, with an unapologetic defence of this material, on the ongoing culture wars that is present in Western society. He covers this in witty and well researched erudite style, giving the historical origins, social context on the various key topics that are subject to debate on the newspaper leaders and online chatrooms.
He traces the continuing influence of Marx on the post-Berlin Wall secular opinions, the positive historical role of the Catholic Church, and injects a sense of counter-realism to the implicit assumptions of his opposition.
One cavaet, in that this is geared more towards US audiences, so a familiarity with that political system is assumed. In summary, recommended

Jonah Goldberg is very clever and astute but he doesn't condescend.
Made me laugh and fume in equal measure.
I will ensure my Son reads it BEFORE going to University so he doesn't get poisoned by the usual garbage on campus.

5.0 out of 5 stars Shallow thinking exposed with verve, 15 April 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A delightful book to read, as well as being spot-on. The lack of any depth to the arguments of 'social warriors' , 'eco warriors', etc etc (aka demented busybodies) soon becomes apparent if you can manage to get their attention and their response to basic questions. Read this book to see why the left hates debate, and relies almost entirely on insulting/degrading/demeaning/threatening those who happen to disagree with what passes for analysis in their worldview, based as it is on hateful and superficial thinking.
