If you’re looking for an easy to read but solid summary of the Left’s cultural shenanigans and the devastating effects of its war on America’s psyche, then I would wholeheartedly recommend Tammy Bruce’s scathing polemic, The Death of Right and Wrong: Exposing the Left’s Assault on our Culture and Values. As the snotty review of her book by Publishers’ Weekly back in 2003 correctly states, Ms. Bruce rips into the progressive gurus and their phony catechism of moral chaos.
Bruce argues that multiculturalism, identity politics and “relativism” have turned American society into a “moral vacuum” incapable of distinguishing right from wrong, a reflection of the “malignant narcissism” of an all-powerful “Left Elite.” Amazon.com
And many thanks to Arty for giving me the unintentional nudge to finally get Tammy’s book read and mentally registered. Here are three little nuggets from the Death of Right and Wrong to ponder:
The Left has had to restrict individual freedom of thought and deed in order to destroy the concept of judgment and undermine notions of right and wrong.
The disintegration of our culture, and the conditioning of people into accepting it in silence, begins with legitimizing the depraved.
When your victimhood is your empowerment, recovery is the enemy, and working on individual change becomes counterproductive, even dangerous to your identity.
