Title: “The Tyranny of Cliches: How Liberals Cheat in the War of Ideas”

Author: Jonah Goldberg

Rank: 65

Blurb: “With humor and passion, Goldberg dismantles these and many other Trojan Horses that liberals use to cheat in the war of ideas. He shows that the grand Progressive tradition of denying an ideological agenda while pursuing it vigorously under the false-flag of reasonableness is alive and well. And he reveals how this dangerous game may lead us further down the path of self-destruction.”

Review: “I found it cathartic when Goldberg declares, ‘The Marxists who claimed to be ending the masses’ addiction to religion then proceeded to slaughter those same masses at a rate unprecedented in the history of human life.'”

Footnote: Special Bonus Review!

Take social justice for instance. Who could oppose any kind of justice? Except “social justice” is a term which turns the traditional definition of justice (“to each his own”) on its head, transforming it into an indictment of income inequality.

“To each his own” is the English translation of Suum Cuique, first popularized by Cicero. The German translation, Jedem das Seine, could be found over the gates of Buchenwald.

Of course, it’s cheating if you’re smarter (on the whole) than the folks you’re up against.

Hell I don’t consider these people conservatives. The ones I knew were smarter and wiser than this (or maybe I didn’t know better.) The 90s/00s era “movement” types are fucking morans (sic) affected with arrested emotional/intellectual development, psychosis and/or Dunning Krueger. They are the embodiment of “not all conservatives are stupid, but most stupid people are conservative.”

He’s certainly learned the lesson of creating your narrative.

Blame this all on Lucianne Goldberg who whelped this horrible human being.

Did you guys see this article yet? I found it very interesting, and it looks like the kind of change I’d like to see in the world:

Lincoln High School in Walla Walla, WA, tries new approach to school discipline — suspensions drop 85%

@IanJ: Thanks for this link. It’s great.
Another appalling thing that I keep reading about is calling the police to discipline children as young as six who misbehave in school. Schools, even at the elementary school level, seem to be modeling themselves on minimum-security prisons.

@IanJ: It was wonderful to read. Thanks for some rare good news.
