    According to Goldberg, if the greatest trick the Devil ever pulled was convincing the world he didn’t exist, the greatest trick liberals ever pulled was convincing themselves they’re not ideological. Today “objective” journalists and academics and “moderate” politicians peddle some of the most radical arguments by hiding them in homespun aphorisms.

    Story
    What made the experience of listening to The Tyranny of Clichés the most enjoyable?

    I love Audible books because life is so buzy I seldom have time to sit and read. However, I can Listen and do other activities and still enjoy books. The Tyranny of Cliches provides the Historical content behind the slogans and their idealogically meaning. You need to know History in order to put the present in focus.


    What does Jonah Goldberg bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Jonah Goldberg's reading of the book provides his inflections of humor, confidence of the historical content, and exasperation of how these cliches are so often repeated as if they have weight .


    Any additional comments?

    I am going to also buy the paper copy of the book so I can phyically highlight the factual information. Confuse a Liberal with facts and information. Also, This is one book I want to keep in my library for when my sons go to college in the future I can combat the gobbly gook from their peers and teachers.
