How the Irish Saved Civilization by Thomas Cahill
Excerpt: “In this entertaining and compelling narrative, Thomas Cahill tells the story of how Europe evolved from the classical age of Rome to the medieval era. Without Ireland, the transition could not have taken place. Not only did Irish monks and scribes maintain the very record of Western civilization — copying manuscripts of Greek and Latin writers, both pagan and Christian, while libraries and learning on the continent were forever lost — they brought their uniquely Irish world-view to the task”.
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

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.
