Has anyone read "Liberal Fascism" by Jonah Goldberg? I'm 177 pages into it. So far it is an awesome book. I'm very excited about the discoveries it is giving me and the perspective it reveals. I don't mean that in the sense of taking it as gospel or truth, but rather that it is presenting to me some fresh views of world social political philisophical history over the past couple hundred years or so. Mainly it presents a new (to me) way of looking at American socialism and left liberalism (as opposed to classical or right liberalism and conservatism). Since many on GT are interested in preserving freedom, the themes and the perspective provided by this book may both be interesting and important. Not sure all readers will be comfortable with the words used. I'd describe it as a college level book. Not saying it isn't accessible to casual readers below that educational level, but it would probably help to be familiar with some of the words and concepts students typically see in intro political science, sociology, philosophy, economics, and history classes. Without that background you can still look up the occassional unfamiliar word or concept to get more of what the author is saying. Just suggesting that those kinds of intro courses are useful. Or any kind of similar familiarity, whether through college or on your own readings. Having said that, it is an easy read. Although I'm obviously pausing long enough to post this before I finish the book probably next week ___________ I joined the NRA, have you yet?
