The Radical Wrong Lies Our Founding Fathers Never Told Us

Author: Victor Daniels Ph.D.
Publisher: BookBaby
ISBN: 9781620957844
Release Date: 2012-05-07
Genre: Political Science

This is a hard-hitting response to false statements about our nations values and ideals by rigid radical right-wing extremists. It unmasks their deceptions by using the actual words of the founding fathers—both brief quotations and longer passages. It pays tribute to the America you always knew was hidden behind smokescreens of rigid partisan ideological rhetoric and tells how to get it back. The spirits of Patrick Henry, Thomas Paine, Benjamin Franklin, George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Abraham Lincoln, James Madison, Samuel Adams and others walk through these pages, telling you what they themselves said and meant. Throughout, the author asks you to think for yourself rather than accept his views or those of any party or partisan. This engaging work bares the origins of the widening gap between rich and poor, tells how religious imperialists are imposing their views on everyone, and lets the founding fathers speak directly to all that. It moves through the years to let you hear the thoughts and sentiments of notable Americans of the 19th and 20th Centuries. It examines the Warfare State’s never-ending aggression and beggaring of our nation’s treasury, and the twisted view of liberty that places freedom for corporations above freedom for people. It reviews women’s and African-American’s past and present struggles for freedom. Remarks by historic and contemporary humorists lend a lighter touch. The book’s three parts are: Democracy in Crisis; Dimensions of Our Concerns; and Heal Yourself, Heal the Nation, Heal The World. Each chapter is arranged around a topic such as liberty, justice, equality, and other foundation-stones of democracy that are under siege today. Each starts with an orienting paragraph, moves into the quotations that are its central feature, then provides the author’s comments and solutions. It challenges you to help rescue the America that most of us know and loved from the quicksands of right-wing ideology that threaten it today.

The news media are often seen as a fourth branch of government, serving as a check on the other three. This text argues that this is a mistaken notion: the media's decisions affect the government's policy making, as well as the processes and outcomes of the political system.

Truthout’s Progressive Pick of the Week Ralph Nader’s 10 Books to Provoke Conversation in 2014 Every year since 1976, Project Censored, our nation's oldest news-monitoring group--a university-wide project at Sonoma State University founded by Carl Jensen, directed for many years by Peter Phillips, and now under the leadership of Mickey Huff--has produced a Top-25 list of underreported news stories and a book, Censored, dedicated to the stories that ought to be top features on the nightly news, but that are missing because of media bias and self-censorship. Seven Stories Press has been publishing this yearbook since 1994, featuring the top stories listed democratically in order of importance according to an international panel of judges. Beyond the Top-25 stories, additional chapters delve further into timely media topics: The Censored News and Media Analysis section provides annual updates on Junk Food News and News Abuse, Censored Deja Vu, signs of hope in the alternative and news media, and the state of media bias and alternative coveragearound the world. In the Truth Emergency section, scholars and journalists take a critical look at the US/NATO military-industrial-media empire. And in the Project Censored International section, the meaning of media democracy worldwide is explored in close association with Project Censored affiliates in universities and at media organizations all over the world. A perennial favorite of booksellers, teachers, and readers everywhere, Censored is one of the strongest lifesigns of our current collective desire to get the news we citizens need--despite what Big Media tells us.
