|Minority Bolshevism by Zuriel Redwood|
Everything from Fascism, Socialism, Communism, and Capitalism is given a deeper look through the expansive research and ideas of the author. What exactly is a free market? Or the idea of democracy giving way to totalitarianism? Are our freedoms slowly being eroded under the guise of "security"?
There are many disturbing facts that the reader will acknowledge when delving deeper into this book.
"What a stable and democratic government really needs is the consent of the governed not the fulfillment of all the wishes of the people. Given an opportunity, people will vote for benefits to themselves even if the country cannot possibly afford these."
As the old adage goes, those who forget the past are doomed to repeat it. Never has it been so much more valid than our current state of affairs.
It is a repainted and revisited idea; from the Orwellian concept of losing our rights and living in a conformist, subjugated society, to the paradoxical dilemma of Catch 22 by Joseph Heller, there have been countless authors who have addressed these ideas and issues throughout history.
But it is a stunning reminder and warning to our own lackadaisical, perhaps even deliberately obtuse behavior as a society. Zuriel Redwood has created an easy-to-understand compilation of common patterns and the impact of learned lessons, that the world in general and the American public in specific has deigned to disregard.
