RS Book Notes, Week #5 – late this week

    Darn it! Events off-line have totally wrecked my schedule for the last few days and I’m unable to post this week’s assignment today as I should. And I’m sorry ’bout that. (Does this mean I’ll have to go sit in the corner?) However, I will be posting my thoughts re: Franklin Roosevelt’s Fascist New Deal, the 4th Chapter of Goldberg’s Liberal Fascism right here in | Read More »

    RS Book Notes, Week #4 – Woodrow Wilson and the Birth of Liberal Fascism

    Reading the Third Chapter of Jonah Goldberg’s Liberal Fascism then posting our thoughts about it is our 4th week’s assignment in Red State’s Book Notes project. Chapter 3: Though I’m an amateur student of history and have long considered Woodrow Wilson to be the worst President the U.S. has ever had (though the current resident of the White House might outdo him, and Jimmy Carter | Read More »

    The Original Fascist: Wilson?

    I think the thing I was the most surprised about in the third Chapter of Liberal Fascism is how much about President Wilson I had never heard.  In school I was taught that Wilson was President during the first world war, and created the League of Nations.  Then we skipped to FDR. Reading Mr. Goldberg’s book opened a whole new world to President Wilson.   It’s | Read More »

    RS Book Notes, Week #3 – Adolf Hitler: Man of the Left

    Reading the Second Chapter of Jonah Goldberg’s Liberal Fascism then posting our thoughts about it is our 3rd week’s assignment in Red State’s Book Notes project. Chapter 2: Titled Adolf Hitler: Man of the Left, this chapter does offer a brief biographical sketch of the man but focuses much more on just exactly what National Socialism (Nazism) was (and is), how it is so closely | Read More »

    Liberal Fascism: Adolf Hilter

    This is my contribution to our discussion of Jonah Golberg’s book.  This week covers’ Chapter 2: Adolf Hitler: Man of the Left. I think it is impossible to read this chapter and not draw parallel’s to today’s liberal movement.  Some of the issues the Nazi party and today’s liberals championed are the same:  universal education, increased entitlements, and a “division of profits” of industry for | Read More »

    The 2nd Week’s Assignment – RedState Book Notes

    Reading the Introduction and First Chapter of Jonah Goldberg’s Liberal Fascism then posting our thoughts about it was our 2nd week’s assignment in Red State’s Book Notes project. Working my way through Goldberg’s Liberal Fascism is an experience very similar to working my way through a serious college textbook. I find myself underlining phrases and passages, writing notes in the book’s margins, and marking pages | Read More »

    A Message to Garcia – RS Book Notes assignment #1

    Elbert Hubbard’s short book, A Message to Garcia, written over a century ago, was a very quick and easy read. More than anything else it is a treatise about the different types of workers there are in society, and the spirit of dedication a worker should bring to his job, whatever that job might be. The first few sentences of the book’s Apologia section, titled | Read More »
