Free download Suicide of the West ã PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB free Jonah Goldberg ì 5 Read Defines most of history in 18th century England when we accidentally discovered the miracle of liberal democratic capitalismAs Americans we are doubly blessed that those radical ideas were written into the Constitution laying the groundwork for our uniuely prosperous society Our rights come from God not from the government The government belongs to us; we do not belong to the government The individual is sovereign We are all captains of our own souls The fruits of our labors belong to usIn the last few decades these political virtues have been turned into vices As we are increasingly taught to view our tr. The chapter on Trump deserves Five Stars and then some Jonah not only nails all of Trump s bizarre obsessions and character flaws which are too well known to be enumerated here but provides a brilliant analysis of how the Republican party fell apart and why the Conservative movement was unable to resist him The rest of the book is barely worth one star There s all the usual Goldberg filler cheap shots at Franklin Roosevelt horror stories about the French Revolution condescending pop culture references amateur anthropology forced attempts at humor and hipness and on top of that the most obseuious nauseating sentimentality about powerful institutions like the Catholic Church Two moments stuck out for me as being especially creepy The first was very early on where Jonah breaks from an extended tribute to the glorious Founding Fathers including Honest Abe Lincoln and George I Cannot Tell A Lie Washington and delivers a stirring defense of the value of hypocrisy That s right hypocrisy Just like dear old David Brooks in that other oily conservative masterpiece The Road To CharacterWhat is it with Conservatives and hypocrisy I read this whole book trying to figure it out Finally I noticed that Jonah made some stupid off hand remark about not liking crowds and feeling very suspicious of demagogues and the mob That means Trump I suppose and his supporters But it also means anyone who doesn t accept the authority of the elites It means people who serve in the military instead of going to college And the funny thing is Jonah Goldberg s understanding of who the elites really are and why they deserve their position isn t really all that different from Katha Pollitt s or Anna uindlen s His cultural tastes and labored scholarship make it clear that he s loyal to his class over his party and that it s only privileged college educated people he takes seriously Deep down Jonah doesn t like or respect working class people and that s why he hates the idea of populism so much What makes Jonah different from people like Anna uindlen or Katha Pollitt is that unlike them he understands that his position depends on the sacrifice of people beneath him on the social scale In order to keep what he has he has to continually praise people he has no intention of ever imitating combat soldiers above all of course but also cops firemen teachers and so on He has to pretend he s on their side when he really doesn t care what happens to them one way or the other It s the only way to keep us working And that s where the virtue of hypocrisy comes inSpeaking of combat soldiers it s very interesting that in his entire analysis of why millions of angry embittered poor whites endorsed Trump there s no mention of either the Ira War or the still ongoing war in Afghanistan Fifteen sixteen seventeen years of war and no end in sight Jonah has all day long to talk about the Reign of Terror and what it did to France and the tragic suffering of the aristocrats and priests who got dragged to the guillotine but he can t spend five paragraphs on the human suffering of disabled veterans and their families Did they feel betrayed by Bush By Obama By you Our boy doesn t care But they re still out there Jonah and they vote The other moment that creeped me out was when Jonah suddenly started grooving on how much he loves THE EXORCIST a really disgusting and violent horror movie from back around 1973 This whole movie is about how a preteen girl gets possessed by the Devil and she starts talking dirty and spitting up and a couple of celibate male Catholic priests have to moan and chant and sprinkle Holy Water all over her dirty sinful female body and then finally the righteous male priests beat hell out of her with their fists and the Devil goes away Jonah evidently thinks this is what civilization is all about virtuous men making war against the beastliness of human nature What I think the movie is about is hatred of the human body fear of female sexuality and the connection between repression and sadism Jonah s a smart boy but he would have been better off riffing on THE GODFATHER because the 2016 election was just like the famous final scene where Michael s goons close the door in Kay s face But at least that was a halfway decent movie Chimica.

Read something that makes you yell at the audiobook every now and then Saw the author on The Daily Show and he had some interesting thoughts in promoting his book so I downloaded the audiobook Positive Interesting historical recitation including relating several schools of philosophy to his thesis that the current state of American democracy is active decay Interesting juxtaposition of some social psych research which I have read in my academic career However He has a MASSIVE habit of conflating unsubstantiated thoughts he has about the world with certain research and making sweeping generalizations and even contradicting himself Heavy on the good old days were better for the world rhetoric again good for whom And the traditional family structure 1 man 1 woman raising children is better for society He compares statistics from 60 years ago to the status of the family etc now He rests on numerous assumptions as to what should be considered better I don t wholly disagree with everything he says I mean after all he is clearly obsessed with Game of Thrones haha SO MANY GOT references
