1.0 out of 5 stars Perversion of the truth
Right, of course, the left controls all the giant media corporations; the left runs the USA's government, and Rupert Murdoch is a closet communist! (That was sarcasm, by the way).

(TOP 1000 REVIEWER)    (HALL OF FAME REVIEWER)   
In this informative and disturbing book, Tammy Bruce starts out with a traumatic episode from her youth to describe her personal and political journey. It is an honest account of the people and events that shaped her beliefs and convictions. At the same time it reveals some horrific aspects of popular culture, politics and the media as they operate today.
Bruce exposes the rank hypocrisy, soul-destroying motives and malevolent mind-set of the Left in chapters dealing with the Academic, Black, Gay and Feminist Elites, plus some destructive tendencies in the arts, the media and the justice system in the United States today. Some of her examples make harrowing reading, whilst her insight is often tinged by a bit of humour, for example when she identifies the gangster rapper as the current equivalent of Rousseau’s “noble savage” in the eyes of the Left.
Bruce’s diagnosis rings true. She discusses the mental disease called malignant narcissism and explains how it is rooted in trauma that never attempts recovery. These individuals, instead of seeking psychological help, are focusing on social change. In other words, they want the rest of society to mirror their own hurt and pain.
She makes a very convincing case for the fact that an entire wing of politics is invested in the victim-hood of its constituency, the leaders of which are trying to work out their demons on society. This is scary stuff, but easy to recognize from the examples in the book or by taking a critical and discerning approach towards trends in the media.
To be fair, Bruce points out that there are similar people on the Right (puritanical compulsives), but that these do not control the culture. The concept and repulsive results of moral relativism and the phenomenon of groupthink are also analysed. The author quotes Dr M Scott Peck and recommends his book People Of The Lie for a thorough investigation of malignant narcissism and its use of the lie to distort reality.
A chilling read at times, The Death Of Right And Wrong is a brilliant and eloquent exposure of some pathological strains infecting large sectors of culture and society. The book ends on an optimistic note with a call to the individual to recognize the difference between right and wrong, to take a stand and to live a life of decency and integrity.
The book concludes with 31 pages of notes and references arranged by chapter, plus a thorough index. It is a real eye-opener, a thought-provoking work that offers unique political and psychological insights. I also recommend Paul Johnson’s groundbreaking work Intellectuals, for an interesting look at the private lives of certain famous writers and philosophers and Thomas Sowell’s book The Vision Of The Anointed.

4.0 out of 5 stars Smash!, 31 May 2006
Tammy Bruce takes a baseball bat to the so called liberal 'left elite' - and whallop! This is a good read. Whilst she conceeds that one cannot state the 'left elite' is a secret group conspiring together against society, she adds together the pieces which form it - ie gay rights, feminism, multiculturalists.. and describes their collective effect as the alien which burts out of the stomach of the guy in alien... feeding on their host (ie american society)and then killing it!

Highly entertaining book whith a chilling message.

4.0 out of 5 stars Morality strikes back, but are we too late....?, 30 Nov 2005

(REAL NAME)   
This book makes a fantastic read, and is a real eye opener to both the Rightwing and those who don't take a particular interest in the daily yah-boo of politics.
Far from becoming a 300-odd page Richard Littlejohn style rant against the Left, Tammy sensitively outlines her own past and uses personal experience to expose a growing sector of society who wishes to destory the very fabric by which we live our daily lives.
Special cases used to illustrate what is becoming the norm are analysed in the book, with cross reference to third party articles and media to back up her points.
A real eye opener.
Leftists should read this book also, and perhaps use the arguments contained to justify their continued existance.

Right, of course, the left controls all the giant media corporations; the left runs the USA's government, and Rupert Murdoch is a closet communist! (That was sarcasm, by the way). And of course there are a very small number of people, hidden away in sociology and philosophy departments (which do not, contrary to some paranoid views, run the world), who are complete moral relativists. But these postmodernists are insignificant. For the 'Right' to target these people is absurd. The people who really run the world are called capitalists, who own and run the means of production, including the media firms. They are a tiny minority, but they try to impose their misanthropic and malevolent view of the world, by portraying the mass of the people as idiots, cannonfodder, dupes, mere consumers. Here in Britain, the capitalists have been trying for decades to persuade us that we can't run our own affairs, trying to tell us that we need the nice people who run the European Union to run Britain too. But it doesn't work - most of us oppose their plans to railroad us into the euro, and most of us oppose their schemes to drive us into the EU's anti-democratic new Constitution.
