Confrontational Politics has many features that help libertarian and conservative activists overcome their natural political deficiencies. Witness chapter one, which is titled: "Why Traditional American Habits Prevent Conservatives from Successfully Countering the Left." Those familiar with presentations dealing with The Real Nature of Politics will find this a helpful supplement. For example, for those activists not aware of their own weakness, this chapter is a brutally honest eye-opener. The name of the game is confrontation and mobilization, but conservatives and especially libertarians are not as effective at confrontation as they should be.
Chapter three: "The Liberal's Compromise: I Win, You Lose, Then You Lose Some More" is a very good chapter. The author speaks of the Leninist idea of advance by retreat, which most conservatives and libertarians don't understand very well. Imagine a hammer being pulled back for the next hammer stroke. As the hammer pulls back, it is storing up energy for the next blow.
Chapter Four is extremely important: "Humanist Organization and Planned Confrontation on the Path to Liberal Power". Here's a good quote that was very insightful: "The cause is of secondary importance. The primary concern is the organizational possibilities." Wow.Read more ›
