Radical liberals want to make America a better place, but their utopian social engineering leads, ironically, to greater human suffering. From Karl Marx to Barack Obama, Horowitz shows how the idealistic impulse to make the world a better place gives birth to the twin cultural pathologies of cynicism and nihilism and is the chief source of human suffering. A former liberal himself, Horowitz recounts his own brushes with radicalism and offers unparalleled insight into the disjointed ideology of liberal elites through case studies of well-known radial leftists, including Christopher Hitchens, feminist Bettina Aptheker, leftist academic Cornel West, and others. Exploring the origin and evolution of radical liberals and their progressive ideology, Radicals illustrates how liberalism is not only intellectually crippling for its adherents but devastating to society. David Horowitz is one of America’s most original and iconoclastic political commentators. He is the best-selling coauthor of The Rockefellers and The Kennedys and the president of the Center for the Study of Popular Culture. He lives in Los Angeles. 1. Language: English.

A Macat Analysis of Francis Fukuyama's The End of History and the Last Man. When American political scientist Francis Fukuyama published The End of History and the Last Man in 1992, Western liberal democracies seemed to have won the Cold War between the United States and the Soviet Union. Fukuyama believed liberal democracy had triumphed for a reason. Any political system containing "fundamental contradictions," he thought, would eventually be replaced by something else. For Fukuyama, communism was such a system. He believed liberal democracy had no such fundamental contradictions, so it would endure, and other forms of government would eventually give way to it. For Fukuyama, democracy marks the end point in the evolution of ideology, and so the "end of history." There would still be "events," but not any fundamental change. The book's argument cannot so far be proven, of course. Although the number of liberal democracies has increased since 1990, they currently face threats Fukuyama had not foreseen in 1992. Yet the book still offers real food for thought for anyone who cares about politics. You can find out more about how Fukuyama's ideas have been challenged and applied - and how his work has impacted on thinkers in other academic disciplines - by exploring further in the Macat Library. Macat's analyses cover 14 different subjects in the humanities and social sciences. Macat. Learn better. Think smarter. Aim higher. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Macat Int.

Liberals scoff when conservatives denounce Obama and his policies as socialist. After all, they argue, Obama isn’t Stalin and America is nothing like the Soviet Union. But socialism doesn’t always resemble the Berlin Wall or the Iron Curtain, as National Review editor Kevin Williamson proves in his new book, The Politically Incorrect Guide to Socialism. In this new P.I. Guide, Williamson reveals the truth: despite what the liberal politicians and leftist pundits would have you believe, the policies coming out of Washington today are nothing more than socialism disguised as equality and justice for all. Tracing socialism back to its roots, Williamson defines this misunderstood ideology, explains the different forms socialism takes on, and shows how it is thriving right here in the United States in the form of “Obamacare”, financial regulations, and more. Offering conservatives the political and rhetorical ammunition they need to combat the liberal lies about one of the most misunderstood ideologies in modern history, The Politically Incorrect Guide to Socialism reveals why everything socialism purports to do, the free market does better. 1.

Throughout the US, the politics of race and gender in our universities are transforming admissions policies, as well as curriculums. This controversial expose attacks the wave of multicultural ideology, in one of the earliest, and most thorough, efforts to examine the rapidly eroding traditions of scholarship and reward for individual achievement. Dinesh D'Souza discovers in this firsthand investigation of today's campuses that the universities with the strongest multicultural agendas are the ones reporting the greatest number of racially charged incidents. D'Souza argues that the programs designed to foster racial harmony instead promote intolerance and have split American universities on moral grounds and destroyed the right to liberal learning. 1.
