Comment: David Thibodaux, Ph.D., wrote a remarkable and outstanding book titled, Political Correctness: The Cloning of the American Mind. David is an English professor at the University of South-Western Louisiana and in his short work, he really hits the nail on the head. Quoting from the back cover of his book: "This is a brilliant illustration of the hypocrisy of the political correctness movement and its destructive effects on a free society."

A Conflict of Visions
Thomas Sowell
William Morrow & Co. Paperback - 273 pages Reprint edition (April 1988)
Comment: There are two main opposing visions of man in relation to himself, to other men and to government. When you understand the two visions, you can see why people line up on one side of an issue, and you can predict the positions they will take based on just a few questions. This one book provides a clearer explanation of the bases of modern controversies than would a whole undergraduate education in political science. I would literally pay people to read it. -- Richard Stevens, Editor JPFO Firearms Sentinel
