I got my new books today. I’m starting with Jonah Goldberg’s “Liberal Fascism”…here is a paragraph that caught my attention…
“Crisis is routinely identified as a core mechanism of fascism because it short circuits debate and democratic deliberation. Hence all fascistic movements commit considerable energy to prolonging a heightened state of emergency.” p.43
I think I’ve already lived through the first sentence in the last few months…it remains to be seen if the second one comes to pass.
The other two books are Atlas Shrugged by Ayn Rand and Mark Levin’s Liberty and Tyranny…my summer reading. Atlas Shrugged is a particularly thick volume with small words.
