147. Book Review | Fools, Frauds, and Firebrands by Roger Scruton

With leaders of the influential BLM movement claiming to be avowed Marxists, I think it’s good we look at what Marx and his followers believe. This book is a travel through the development of Marxist thought from simply economic to what it is today: an all-encompassing cultural push.

In this book, Sir. Roger Scruton follows the development of Marxist ideology from Post -war Europe to the 80’s and to today. This is actually the book that caused the first cancellation as he was ostracized from the University where he was teaching. He takes on a number of thinkers you’d know as well as many you may not know.

“The Marxist theory of ideology is extremely contentious, not least because it is tied to socio-economic hypotheses that are no longer believable.”

Roger Scruton

If you’re curious how the left has taken over institutions of education to help them peddle Marxism, this is how. The methods, jargon, and beliefs are laid out in this book for you to follow. Plus, you’ll have many excerpts from their works to see how they think, rather than only getting it second-hand. If you’re confused about the moment we’re in, this book will offer clarity.

155. Book Review | How to Win Friends & Influence People by Dale Carnegie Conversation of Our Generation

About the author, Dale Carnegie Dale Carnegie’s life is a story of success – a true rags to riches tale. Though he shares the last name of the steel titan, Andrew Carnegie, they aren’t related. Dale Carnegie actually changed the spelling of his last name to match the industrialist’s spelling to gain clout. But, this book review is not about that. It’s a look at How to Win Friends & Influence People, a fantastic guide to dealing with people. Why I chose to review this book: I found this book tremendously helpful as I left college and entered the business world. It was difficult to talk to experienced professionals, and I needed a confidence boost. Before graduating college, I worked in retail and had no problem talking to customers. But, being thrust into a new world, I was out of my element and needed help. If you ask me, this book is a must-read for anyone looking to lead a successful life. “Inaction breeds doubt and fear. Action breeds confidence and courage. If you want to conquer fear, do not sit home and think about it. Go out and get busy.” -Dale Carnegie Readability of the book: I find it easily readable. Written in a conversational tone, it’s like he’s transcribing some advice he gave a friend. The stories are intriguing, although sometimes a bit outlandish. That said, the lessons you draw from them make it feel more like a parable than a lie or hyperbole. Grab your copy of How to Win Friends & Influence People here.
