    "Fascists", "Brownshirts", "jackbooted stormtroopers" - such are the insults typically hurled at conservatives by their liberal opponents. Calling someone a fascist is the fastest way to shut them up, defining their views as beyond the political pale. But who are the real fascists in our midst?

    After reading this book, the only thing I can say is WOW! All the things that I knew were wrong, but didnt know why, became clear. The mask came off the lie of liberalism and progressivism and how really evil it all is, you know...based on "compassion" and "giving to the unfortunate." GREAT BOOK!! This should be the starter book for all to read who want to know what is going on right now in our government in 2010.

    Our age is obsessed by the idea of conspiracy. We see it everywhere---from Pearl Harbor to 9/11, from the assassination of Kennedy to the death of Diana. In this age of terrorism we live in, the role of conspiracy is a serious one---one that can fuel radical or fringe elements to violence. For award-winning journalist David Aaronovitch, there came a time when he started to see a pattern among these inflammatory theories.

    WriterGirl says: "Another debunker of conspiracy theories"
    "surface research only"
    Overall

    While this author tries to debunk the conspiracies, he just doesn't go deep enough into the history of things to give an accurate account of what was truly happening. He is correct, in that, conspiracies are used for political and personal gain. However, his historical diggings, primarily, in the US is factually skewed (the European conspiracies were much better). The premise is correct, but the fact finding is lazy. There would be no way to convince anyone who knows anything about history.
    I was very disappointed in this book.
