Dear Friends and Citizens,
My goal in these messages is to present perspectives on the educational, cultural, and political state of our country to encourage you to decide that change is needed and that change begins with each of us finding our unique brand of activism in the freedom movement.
Voting is not enough. Unless we are taking deliberate action on a daily basis, American exceptionalism will continue to fade. Many actions are simple and can be accomplished by busy working parents if we build them into our daily routines. I firmly believe this movement will enrich our lives and that of our families and provide purpose and direction so lacking in today’s young people.
Today’s message is about an important thinker and communicator whose message gives us insights into those who seek to deny our freedom and why they succeed even though our values are morally superior.
We have collectively failed to convey what it means to be an American and even many educated adults do not fully appreciate what we stand for. Every adult and all high school and college aged children can benefit from Prager’s lessons on the moral failure of the left, which can serve as an anti-dote to the leftist culture we are bombarded with.
Dennis Prager’s message in Still the Best Hope is important because in it he explains:
- the inherent moral and intellectual defects of Leftism and the harm and human suffering it has caused in the world and in America where it has prevailed (such as 100% Democratic cities).
- the role of raw emotion employed by the Left to push its agenda and take the moral high ground – and to vilify Republicans and anyone who opposes it. (This must be fully understood because no political strategy can succeed unless the Right puts the Left on the defensive by using victims of the suffering caused by the Left’s agenda – and rightly takes back the moral high ground.)
- the role of Judeo-Christian religion and values in the American system and how it was embedded in our culture and is essential for America to continue to be exceptional. Leftists are successfully removing Judeo-Christian values from our society and replacing them with Leftist values, which they hold and spread like a religion.
- the values and goals of the Left and the Right are incompatible — we don’t all want the same thing for America in the end. The Left knows this, but many on the right do not.
— A good book review of Still the Best Hope is linked here.
“His examination of the Left is perceptive and devastatingly accurate. He finds the Left a purveyor of statism, pacifism, egalitarianism and moral relativism. It rejects limited government, as it does nationalism, patriotism, and free markets.”
“In this visionary book, Dennis Prager, one of America’s most original thinkers, contends that humanity confronts a monumental choice. The whole world must decide between American values and its two oppositional alternatives: Islamism and European-style democratic socialism.
Prager—a bestselling author, columnist, and nationally syndicated radio talk show host who is read and heard by millions of people in America and abroad—makes the case for the American value system as the most viable program ever devised to produce a good society. Those values are explained here more clearly and persuasively than ever before.”
— Dennis Prager also shares his wisdom on a wide variety of topics in 5 minute videos on Prager University. Check out one of my favorites here: Human Nature – Are we basically good?
If you like Dennis Prager’s books, vides, articles, talk shows, share them with your friends and family – and know that seeking and sharing wisdom is crucial to preserving our freedom.
