The Demon in Democracy: Totalitarian Temptations in Free Societies by Ryszard Legutko
Ryszard Legutko lived and suffered under communism for decades—and he fought with the Polish anti-communist movement to abolish it. In The Demon in Democracy, Legutko explores the shared objectives between these two political systems, and explains how liberal democracy has over time lurched towards the same goals as communism, albeit without Soviet style brutality…. (and) both systems refuse to undertake any critical examination of their ideological prejudices. Book review: James Bradshaw

How the Irish Saved Civilization (Hinges of History Book 1)
By Thomas Cahill. Every year millions of Americans celebrate St. Patrick’s Day, but they may not be aware of how great an influence St. Patrick was on the subsequent history of civilization. Not only did he bring Christianity to Ireland, he instilled a sense of literacy and learning that would create the conditions that allowed Ireland to become “the isle of saints and scholars” — and thus preserve Western culture while Europe was being overrun by barbarians.
Liberalism is a Sin by Dr. Don Felix Sanda
Excerpt: In 1886 there appeared in Spain a little work under the title El Liberalismo es Pecado, “Liberalism Is a Sin,” by Don Felix Sarda y Salvany, a priest of Barcelona and editor of a journal called La Revista Popular. The book excited considerable commotion. It was vigorously assailed by the Liberals. After an investigation it was approved by the ‘Sacred Congregation of the Index’ on 10th January 1887. Commentators have said how appropriate it is now in the 21st century. It is available on Amazon, or alternatively you can read the entire publication online for free at: liberalismisasin.com
Logos Rising: A History of Ultimate Reality
There has never been a time when there was nothing, because if there were ever nothing, there could never be something. There has never been a time when there was nothing but chaos. Order cannot come from chaos, because that which is cannot come from that which is not. Logos Rising: A History of Ultimate Reality describes the tragic and yet ultimately triumphant progress of Logos in human history, from the beginning of everything, to the emergence of the concept, to the Democratic primary of 2020. “This is the most important book of the twenty-first century” – David Hawkes
