"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete? Cognitive scientist and public intellectual Steven Pinker urges us to step back from the gory headlines and prophecies of doom, and instead, follow the data: In seventy-five jaw-dropping graphs, Pinker shows that life, health, prosperity, safety, peace, knowledge, and happiness are on the rise.

"Dad never hid his utter disdain for the arrogant, narcissistic, and uneducated couple who rose from the poverty of community organizing with empty promises of paternal and maternal care for the weak, the poor, and the downtrodden, to a life-style of the rich and famous." This passage wasn't in reference to Barack Obama but to Nicolae Ceausescu who was the brutal dictator of Communist Romania.
"We did 'get' immigration reform in 1986 for 3 million illegal aliens and it did no work so well, we have gained since then 11 more million illegal immigrants. And they are still coming because the largesse of the American government towards invaders is world-renowned and their rights trump the rights of any American immediately upon arrival. All they have to do is 'lawyer up.' And financially, they are given a work permit immediately, a Social Security card, and the right to claim thousands of dollars in Earned Income Tax Credit going three years retroactively, while American veterans die waiting in line to be seen at the Veterans hospital, or waiting to receive their promised and undelivered veterans benefits."
The book was well worth the time it took to read.
Because of her personal knowledge of living under that destructive murderous system, she can easily recognise that this evil
is now here in America. But the majority of the citizens of the country have no knowledge of what socialism/Communism is all about, they do not not see nor understand what is really happening. This book is invaluable, a must read!
Communist takeover. They use the guise of climate change for there reasoning. Read more

jbs.org, stopthecrime.net. freedom is only 1 generation away.. wake up sheeple. Dr. Johnson also has another book called Agenda21 environmental piracy. I recommend reading that 1st
To judge from her new book, our “Communism 2.0” impressions are suddenly similar again. As for my personal impressions of life under the present-day Russian regime of thuggish dictatorial bureaucracy, they are only natural: any more or less quick transition from the Soviet hell to free Russia is hardly possible due to our voters’ nearly century-long genetic fear of independent thinking, which was always “rewarded” by prisons, deportations into labor camps and mass shootings. But then, it was utterly unnatural to meet in this book phrases like “I fled communism 35 years ago and communism is following me to the United States, promoted by a U.S. Senator” or “the world communist movement is taking roots in the U.S. quite nicely from within, lured and supported by the constant main stream media propaganda machine” – these phrases were written in the Land of the Free, whose voters knew neither mass shootings nor deportations into labor camps!
The book offers a very vivid comparison between the classic and the modern versions of communism, but it doesn’t say what kind of citizens would be more preferable to Karl Marx’ heart: the tortured, impoverished and undernourished angry Romanians under the Ceausescu regime or Obama’s ever-happy voters on generous governmental welfare, with each day of their MSM-guided lives under the Big Brother’s best surveillance technologies? The author’s honest observations are not impaired by any politcorrectness: “Americans are asleep, ignorant, mesmerized, doped up, or so corrupt that they no longer care what happens to their fellow citizens, their children’s future, the future of our country, so long as they have a cushy job, mindless „reality” television shows, sports, a pay check, perhaps bribes, comfortable homes, club memberships, vacations, and most of all, intoxicating power and control”. My guess, Marx would probably embrace such a sleepy and doped up electorate with a fatherly smile – there is just no need for GULAGs or shooting squads within Communism 2.0 (well, at least until debts and taxpayers’ money are still within easy reach).
Mrs. Johnson Paugh has no doubts about the Communism 2.0 recipe to reach the final control - “Now they get ahead through crony capitalism, nepotism, corruption, strict adherence to the Democrat Party platform, race baiting, claiming faux discrimination, invoking the manufactured and non-existent “white privilege,” using oppressed minority claims, lawsuits, socialist and environmentalist brainwashing in public schools, and radicalism wrapped in extreme feminism and homosexual rights”.
It is rather frightening picture in itself, but I think the most alarming part of it is the fact that Mrs. Johnson Paugh is far from being some lonely Columbus: during the recent years I’ve read (thanks to the Amazon’s Kindle, quite affordable even for a Russian) a good dozen of fine books about the growing threat of Communism 2.0 written by the principled patriots of America, like Thomas Sowell, Diana West, Trevor Loudon, Marinka Peschmann, Dinesh D’Souza and many others – to tell nothing about the earlier authors, from Ayn Rand to Ion Pacepa and John Stormer. All of them were rewarded with an abundant harvest of well-deserved five stars in the readers’ reviews. Alas, there was no well-deserved reaction during the later presidential elections, whose winner got an open support of the Communist Party, - just like in the author’s old Romania or in my USSR. Meanwhile I’m sure that the mentioned authors’ greatest hopes were not about the new Amazon stars, but about the readers’ new political choices. No way! It’s like all these really priceless books were never written. Or like the whole great nation suddenly became illiterate...
These days Americans are eagerly lobotomized to get their country ready for one more admirer of Saul Alinsky’s 2.0 tactics. However, her promise “We’re going to take things away from you on behalf of the common good” resurrects familiar Communism 1.0 slogans clearly enough to suspect that the Marxists’ treasury of budget money is rapidly thinning, - again just like in pre-downfall Romania or in the USSR. Thus the 2016 elections seem to be the last chance for the U.S. thinking electorate to prove that they were reading their worthy authors not for the fun of the stars-awarding alone. Mrs. Johnson Paugh’s new book deserves different award: not in stars, but in votes. In my opinion, her fearless effort to resist “Communism 2.0” is the latest confirmation of Walt Whitman’s old but immortal 1860 wisdom:
TO The States, or any one of them, or any city of The States,
Resist much, obey little;
Once unquestioning obedience, once fully enslaved;
Once fully enslaved, no nation, state, city, of this earth, ever
afterward resumes its liberty.
