The book jumps back and forth between details of the author's life and research on sociology, anthropology, history and genetics; all of it is carefully referenced. The transformation of the American media is shown clearly and factually. Foreign influences with nefarious purposes have been shown to exist at the heads of all major newspaper publications in the entire country. Most of the legislation which has brought down the national average IQ, school systems and neighborhoods are exposed. It was all blurry before I picked up this book and it is now frighteningly clear. Everybody should read this book if we are to survive.
Those who have sought to discredit and bash the author have been shown as the criminals they are. David Duke has never commited a violent or criminal act in his life, yet he was almost murdered on three occasions. Why? There is not a racial slur or virulent phrase in this entire book. The message is purposeful, positive and redeeming. Open your mind and give it a read, it's well worth it.
The fact that Stephen Jay Gould and other anthropologists of the socialist bent have been brought "out" by other academics, only supports Duke's thesis, that the races ARE different, and that race DOES matter. For our people, and for blacks. NO WHERE does Duke claim that whites are superior, in fact he speaks highly of black accomplishment at what they are good at, their best attributes. But he is painfully honest, and that will be what hurts his critics the most. Our people have a spirit that can never be extinguished, and Duke is but one light in the fire that is our provence.
...I wish him well and look forward to reading his next work.
The Forward is one of the strong points of this book. Written by Glayde Whitney, it details the philosophy of Thales of Miletus that the real world should be observed and analyzed, and that free discussion of what is found be allowed. The Forward contains a well-written abstract of the book. Its brevity helps ideas stand out clearly. For example, we smugly moralize that people in Communist countries only hear what their rulers want them to hear. We look past the beam in our own eye. Inscribed on the Jefferson Monument is: "Nothing is more certainly written in the book of fate than that these people [Negroes] are to be free." What is missing is the rest of the quotation: "Nor is it less certain that the two races, equally free, cannot live in the same government." My, my.
I have known for decades that there isn't a dime's worth of difference among the major news magazines, newspapers, and TV news programs. I have watched the steady erosion of decency in radio and TV programs, and the movies. Rumors abounded, but nothing substantial was offered until this book. Once someone spells it out, as David Duke has done, it all makes sense. I remain leery, though, and retain Andy Groves' attitude, "Only The Paranoid Survive."
I recommend "My Awakening." Read it and think. Then, be prepared to enter the dialogue that will last for decades. No nation throughout history has solved the problem of how people of various cultures can live together without one culture trying to destroy the others. Americans have a unique opportunity to try to solve that problem, but only if we reject the blender mishmash that we are fed daily.
