“Every act of conscious learning requires the willingness to suffer an injury to one’s self-esteem. That is why young children, before they are aware of their own self-importance, learn so easily.” ~Thomas Szasz
Books That Can Free the American Mind
Commentary by TLB Contributor: Ken LaRive
It was said in a Lafayette Internet coffee house just last night that Obama is good for one thing, he woke up America. There is hope in that…
We are reawakening as a nation, and our spirituality and intellect are being stimulated and challenged as never before. Challenged by the potential for great loss, and stimulated by a hunger for the truth that can save us.
It is becoming evident that we cannot figure out who our adversary is, or what dominating forces controls us, unless we know ourselves, and our place in the world. If we are going to take back our country, we Americans must pick up our identifying American standard, and the following is a means to that end.
Know yourself as a country, and unite, and you will face your enemy without fear
Review: Interventions by Noam Chomsky….
Though this book is a compilation of articles syndicated by the NY Times, they were rarely published in the US. Our mainstream media considers Chomsky’s point of view to be adjectivally dissident, and wantonly unorthodox, (tong in cheek). Whether you agree or not, his ideas on “Universality” is changing the world rapidly, and should be understood.
And this makes it a must read.
Review: Bush at War by Bob Woodward….
This book is focused from the epilogue onward. It is a complex, well researched, and mostly unbiased account of the Bush administration post-9-11. Definitely considered an insider perspective, it gives the reader the ability to draw their own conclusions, something rare in our current political climate.
Yes, a must read.
Review: War Law by Michael Byers…
It is understood that Americans are ignorant of international affairs As most struggle reading of our own Constitution and Bill or Rights, few understand our convoluted relationship with the UN, and our surprising position on international law.
War Law: Understanding International Law and Armed Conflict, by Michel Byers, tackles the tough questions that our biased media won’t say, or can’t. If you are looking for either a catalyst or a primer for how the US destabilizes International Law, and how that concept applies to our current and sometimes precarious position world-wide, this book is a must read.
Review: Paleoconservatives: new voice of the old right
“Paleoconservatism” as a concept was defined during the 1980s as a response to the rise of Neoconservatism. It is a particular brand of conservatism that rose up in opposition to the New Deal, setting itself against the ideas of the centralizing trends that define modern politics today, on both sides of the isle. It expounds on an understanding of Republican virtues of self-governance and is a celebration of the nation’s varied and colorful regional cultures, with warnings as well.
This book brings together key “Old Right” writers of the past and present, and is a must read.
Review: The Neoconservative Revolution: Jewish Intellectuals and the Shaping of Public Policy by Murry Friedman
This very engaging study describes the post-war migration of Jewish intellectuals from Left to Right. Friedman is a self-avowed Jewish neo-con who investigates his fellow Neocons from socialist salad days to the Cold War shift towards liberal anti-Communism. Ready or not you will see from his eyes the disgust of the counter-cultural excesses of the New Left and the final desecration of Reagan Republicanism.
A must read.

Day of Reckoning: How Hubris, Ideology, and Greed Are Tearing America Apart by Pat Buchanan
Some say this is the very best of Buchanan writing. Ideology, writes Buchanan, is a Golden Calf, a false god, a secular religion that seeks vainly, like Marxism, to create a paradise on earth.
Powerful and to the point, Buchanan pulls no punches. His imperative to save America is to identify and remove from power the ideologues of both parties who have nearly killed our country. In his final chapter Buchanan lays out ideas to prevent the end of America.
Ahead of its time, and the key to our division. A must read…
