The pamphlet's content is directed towards Ms. Southern's age cohort, some of whom will love her opinions and others who won't. I don't see much room for neutral feelings, the content being what it is -- one-sided. Her principal opinion as expressed can be described as follows: At one time Canada was a meritocracy that was built by energetic, optimistic people who sought to become successful there. The government(s) were such that those productive people were encouraged to do exactly what they were doing. But now Canada has become a welfare state that welcomes immigrants who come for two reasons: (1), to live off the Canadian dole, and (2), largely to establish their own version of a nation state having a culture completely foreign to the good one that the Baby Boomers allowed their offspring to begin to tear apart.
Ms. Southern's writing is clear and direct. Therefore her pamphlet is easily and quickly read. It does contain a few crudities that are unnecessary. But only 20 or so of her paragraphs begin with the pronoun "I", which is a plus.
In conclusion this reviewer sees a short work that will successfully affect its young readers' sensibilities one way or the other.
I also never, ever try to do product reviews, because frankly, I could give a care what you think of the doodad you bought or read, or the ridiculous "unboxing" channel you religiously follow on YouTube.
But this stands out, and I really, really want to talk about it.
To anyone not in the camp of right-wing nationalism: The cover and title probably scare you to bits. You're probably assuming it's racist, bigoted, and predisposed to echo chamber opinions that will anger you and reinforce why #YoureWithHer. Well, you're wrong, and there's even a fantastic entire couple of chapters dedicated to explaining why you're wrong, why right-wing millennials aren't LiterallyHitler™, and why nationalism is the most natural form of nourishing and growing families and nations (and she even points out, clearly, that nationalism is responsible for everything you enjoy in life). Best part? The book is only 7 chapters and 82 pages. 6 bucks on Amazon. That's a latte at your hipster coffee shop before social justice class at the university. Give it two hours and read it. At least so that you can understand what put you in your post-election recovery group.
To the Boomers: Want to know why us whipper snappers are so pissed off and can't stand your neoconservative, old GOP ways? Look no further. This book is very ranty, but is incredibly honest, factual, and rooted in established history.
To Muslims: This book is NOT anti-Islam. In fact, most of her entire chapter on Islam is strictly dedicated to drawing a yuge, black line between "terror Islam" and everyone else. This is something you can definitely agree on.
Overall, great read. Ranty at times, but not unnecessarily so. Libertarians should get a great read out of this, as well, as they subscribe to many of the points she brings up as problems with modern day globalism.
She also references cultural memes; can't beat that.
