Publisher's Summary

Political correctness does more harm than good!

It’s a surprising assertion. Isn’t PC culture all about kindness? About protecting victimized groups? If you trace the history of political correctness, the answer is emphatically no. It has other goals in mind and has since its inception with thinkers like Rousseau.

Author Douglas Kruger traces the unfolding ideology from its dark genesis (the French Revolution and subsequent terror) through its various incarnations - Marxism, relativism, post-modernism, and all the way to today’s identity politics. He points out the flaws, fallacies, and, in many cases, the body counts these ideologies have wracked up.

Uniquely, this book then goes one step further. It is not merely descriptive history; it is not just explanatory philosophy. This is a debate guide, a how-to manual for those interested in attacking these harmful ideas head on. Do you know how to articulate what is wrong with “woke” arguments? Do you know how to defend the Western tradition against relentless onslaught from the PC-Police? Here is how, step by step and argument by argument.

Become a master at identifying, debunking, and dismantling dangerous ideas. Add your voice to the culture wars and learn precisely how to fight for tried and tested Western values - values like science, democracy, logic, rule of law, and the Judeo-Christian tradition of human rights and values.

As it turns out, you can have truth, or you can have political correctness, but you can’t have both.

Award-winning speaker and author Douglas Kruger also provides you with supplemental “how-to” videos on his site BreakingWoke.com.

Practical arguments

While many books on the subject matter are single long hand essays and thesis’, DK takes multiple sub-topics within the political correctness discourse, critically examines and debunks them and best of all produces well worded, counter arguments, designed to emulate and use in real life.
As a boomer I enjoyed this book. Hope more people read it and are made aware of the insidiousness of political correctness.

A well written, cogent piece that’ll equipped you to defend Western culture

Kruger’s book is a worthwhile and moving read. You will finish this book wiser and empowered to speak up for the truth. He does well to link past events with current events in order to support his claims.

PC leads to tyranny

Excellent well-researched and clearly written explanation of the negative trends bringing down our culture today. The author tells how to counter PC culture to overcome it with logic.

Bitterly disappointed

Bitterly disappointed, and I say this as a huge Douglas Kruger fan, owning (except for his first novel recently released) every book he’s ever written. Some of them I’ve read multiple times.

This as a result of the discussion relating to slavery in the beginning of the book, where he relies on Dinesh D’Souza’s assertion that there is no evidence that republicans owned slaves the year before the civil war, therefore, all slaves were owned by democrats and slavery was only perpetrated by democrats. Dinesh D’Souza then asserts that it’s possible to refute this claim by showing evidence of a republican that owned a slave.

Only, it’s not, which is why this has been made in such a clever way.

To refute this claim the following assumptions have to be assumed as correct:

1. All people at the time were either democrat or republican. This is not even a requirement in all states in America today. A quick look at the voter registration form confirms this.
2. All people who owned slaves had registered to vote, clearly indicating their party affiliation. Even today, all people who are eligible to vote don’t do so.
3. There are 100% accurate records of who slave owners were, which slaves they owned and it’s possible to link this to voter registration so that this can now be verified, 160 years after the fact.
4. Slavery, a practice (that existed in America since 1619) was the fault purely of democrats, a party that was only established in it’s current form around 1828, more than 200 years after the practice had started.

These inferences and the reliance on the view of one person (no one else is cited as having proved the statement to be correct nor has D’Souza provided evidence to confirm what he claims is a fact) are egregious that I can’t even bring myself to listen to the rest of the book.

Highly recommend this read!

This is an excellent book! An extremely powerful and educational tool on how to identify and deal with political correctness.

I listened to the audio book, but would now like to go out and purchase a written copy.

I finished the book feeling the need to more clearly digest some of the arguments and explanations that made an impact upon me, of which there were many. I also believe the book to be a great source of reference on a vast array of topics that are covered under the subject of political correctness, which make it a great go-to book for obtaining assistance to debunk it.

Although the audio book is well dictated and easy to listen to, I found that the author often dismantled some very deep and complicated arguments at a fast pace, which I sometimes struggled to follow and fully understand (without re-listening), especially since most of the time I was listening to the audio book whilst driving, which meant I was often distracted.

I found the book incredibly well researched with an impressive list of references. I believe that the level of expertise and passion that went into the book can only come from years and years of dedication and study of the subject.

Because the book leans heavily towards one side, it is obvious that you are going to get a certain level of resistance and disagreement with many of the thoughts and ideas presented. I can only speak for myself and say that I found the book particularly fascinating and thought provoking.

I did feel that the book was slightly long, but appreciate that the length was moreso to emphasise the many themes and ideas rather than detract from the overall subject at large.

I highly recommend this read, and believe there is an absolute fortune of wisdom to gain from it.
