Liberal Fascism: The Secret History of the American Left, From Mussolini to the Politics of Change Paperback by Jonah Goldberg (Crown Foru)

This wonderful well-researched 487 page volume (Liberal Fascism: The secret history of the American Left from Mussolini to the politics of meaning by Jonah Goldberg) explores the history of fascism, which most people know little or nothing about. Most people relate Fascism as right wing in nature and Socialism/Communism as left wing; however, the fact is, they are all collectivist systems and end up the same, being glorifying the STATE rather than individualism. The result is always a state dictatorship.

Strangely, I have always stated when talking politics to anyone that it is my personal opinion that “Inside every Liberal is a fascist/socialist dictator who is fighting to get out desiring to destroy individualism, capitalism, and personal freedom.” Reading this fantastic book reinforces my political opinions that so called “progressives” are intellectually dishonest and bankrupt when it comes to true individual freedom. Communism, socialism, and fascism may have some subtle differences; however, they all share many things in common. They include collectivism over individualism, strict obedience to the wishes of the State over free thought and individualism, promotion of political correctness and a hatred of capitalism and free speech and intolerance of all opinions but their own warped philosophy.

This hardcover book was published in 2007 and this is the first time I was aware of this text until recently when I purchased it for a bargain price on Amazon. I love this book and think it should be required reading for every high school and college student in the United States. The information in this intellectually stimulating book is seldom taught in most college class rooms, which for the most part are dominated by far left liberal/fascist professors.

This is a book of facts that have been either ignored or hidden about the relationship of the far left and fascist philosophy.

The ten chapters cover the following topics: Mussolini: the father of fascism, Adolf Hitler: man of the left, Woodrow Wilson and the birth of liberal fascism, Franklin Roosevelt’s fascist new deal, the 1960s: Fascism takes to the streets, from Kennedy’s myth to Johnson’s dream: liberal fascism and the cult of the state, liberal racism, liberal fascist economics, brave new village: Hillary Clinton and the meaning of liberal fascism and the new age: we’re all fascists now. Even though I do not agree 100% percent on the author's thesis; nevertheless, he is right on target on most of his evaluations concerning liberals in this country and around the world.

I think this is an important book for every American to read in order to better understand the true motives of all collective based political systems such as communism, socialism and fascism.
