From the Inside Flap
If you believe children should be seduced into warped sexual behavior by the Gay Elite, if you think confessed murderers should be set free by defense attorneys who know how to wield the race card, if you feel promiscuous gay men should be empowered to spread AIDS and other sexually transmitted diseases, don't read this book.
But if you've always suspected that factions on the Left are trying to destroy the values that define our civilization, this book proves it. Through the pages of The Death of Right and Wrong, author, activist, and pundit Tammy Bruce takes you inside the chilling world of the Left--a place where morals and decency have been turned on their heads and the crisp distinction between Right and Wrong has been blurred into a mushy, gray mess.
In this world, the Gay Elite exploit our children--under the guise of tolerance and education--to satisfy their sexual obsessions.
In this world, the Black Elite laud convicted murderers as community heroes and award-winning "artists."
In this world, the Feminist Elite fawn over a woman who mercilessly killed all five of her children.
And much more that will offend your sense of decency and threaten your basic values.
Ms. Bruce smashes the facades of "Tolerance," "Understanding," and other Leftist slogans to reveal the ugly truth of their agenda. As a gay activist and former president of the Los Angeles chapter of the National Organization of Women, she witnessed firsthand the Left's attempts to undermine our millennia-old code of morals and values, aided by politically biased media and academia. And if the news headlines of today are any indication, they're winning the culture war. Unless we act now, we aredoomed at the hands of special interest groups on the Left who want nothing more than to undermine our ability to judge right from wrong in order to foist their own selfish, anything-goes society on the rest of us. This book reveals what they're doing, how they're doing it, and what we can do to restore decency in our society.
You'll discover powerful tools in these pages to help you understand the psychology of the Left--what makes them tick and, more importantly, how to stop them from eroding our values completely. Full of controversial opinions and countless examples ripped from the headlines, The Death of Right and Wrong is a powerful, eye-opening book that you won't want to be without.

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.
Highly entertaining book whith a chilling message.
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.
