In The Retreat of Western Liberalism, Luce makes a larger statement about the weakening of western hegemony and the crisis of liberal democracy - of which Donald Trump and his European counterparts are not the cause, but a terrifying symptom. Luce argues that we are on a menacing trajectory brought about by ignorance of what it took to build the West, arrogance towards society's economic losers, and complacency about our system's durability.

When I heard the author say that a Chinese torpedo had hit the USS McCain, I suddenly realized that he was reciting a fictional scenario, a possible future for the Trumpet administration, and was not reporting on history. 🙁

The Willie Lynch Letter and the Making of a Slave is a study of slave making. It describes the rationale and the results of Anglo Saxon's ideas and methods of insuring the master/slave relationship. The infamous Willie Lynch letter gives both African and Caucasian students and teachers some insight, concerning the brutal and inhumane psychology behind the African slave trade.

After a few minutes into this supposed speech of 1712 the implausibilities began to compound and it became obvious it's a fraudulent document.

Don't waste your money, it's not even worthwhile as satire. 😟

This is worth repeated listenings to garner its insights. Surely, of all Audible.com programs, it provides one of the best returns on one's purchase dollar and time spent.
