Frightening! That's the only way to describe Ron Arnold's book, Freezing in the Dark: Money, power, politics and the vast left-wing conspiracy. Arnold 's research uncovers the intricate network of special interest groups and their coordinated effort to attack capitalism and control the political landscape.

It's no exaggeration to call Freezing in the Dark a masterpiece of political investigation. From hard evidence, author Ron Arnold carves a vivid, intense- and horrifying - image of today's most ruthless power mongers and political manipulators - who turn out to be left-leaning charitable donors and their armies of non-profit puppets.

It's expected that a polemic will cast your opponent in the worst light possible. Freezing in the Dark is a polemic, but I believe it to be factual, fair and reasonable. I have tried to write the first part, Book I, with some of what philosophers call "the principle of charity"--roughly, seeing things through the eyes of your opponent--but don't mistake my agreeable treatment for agreement. The last part, Book II, doesn't do that.
To the extent possible, I have used open source materials and online resources so anyone can fact-check the text. Interviews were used only where open sources turned up empty or contained misleading gaps.
A few important people did not respond to my interview requests or refused to correct drafts, which I have noted at the proper places.
I was gratified to find that nearly all the progressive leaders I contacted did respond, and were forthcoming and helpful despite our political differences. Some were extraordinarily helpful.
This book has a viewpoint throughout, for which I offer no apologies. I think you will find the result refreshing, interesting - and scary.
