Books Info:

The Tyranny of Cliches free pdf An indispensable and enduring field guide to the arguments the left makes and the ones it tries to avoid. "The Claremont Review of Books" According to Jonah Goldberg, if the greatest trick the devil ever pulled was convincing the world he didn t exist, the greatest trick liberals ever pulled was convincing themselves they re not ideological. Today, objective journalists, academics, and moderate politicians peddle some of the most radical arguments by hiding them in homespun aphorisms. Barack Obama casts himself as a disciple of reason: He s a pragmatist, opposed to the ideology and drama of the Right, solely concerned with what works. And today s liberals follow his lead, spouting countless cliches such as: One man s terrorist is another man s freedom fighter: Sure, if the other man is an idiot. Was Martin Luther King Jr. a terrorist? Was Bin Laden a freedom fighter?Violence never solves anything: Really? It solved our problems with King George III and ended slavery.We need complete separation of church and state: In other words, all expressions of faith should be barred from politics . . . except when they support liberal programs.With humor and passion, Goldberg dismantles these and many other Trojan horses that liberals use to cheat in the war of ideas. He shows that the Progressive tradition of denying an ideological agenda while pursuing it vigorously under the false flag of reasonableness is alive and well. And he reveals how this dangerous game may lead us further down the path of self-destruction."
