How many books by liberal opinion leaders debut at Number #1?
The culture hasn’t been completely destroyed yet. This is not just a book slamming liberals, it’s another of Mark Levins’s deeply intellectual, historical and thoughtful tomes designed to explain conservatism to the American public. And there’s an enormous appetite for it.
“My new book covers a lot of territory — philosophy, history, economics, law, culture, etc. And I look deeply into what is meant by Americanism, republicanism, individualism, capitalism. What do we mean by natural law, unalienable rights, liberty, and property rights? From where do these principles come? Why are they important?” he told the Washington Examiner.
The people buying this book, “Rediscovering Americanism and the Tyranny of Progressivism,” are the same people liberals would tell you are dumb, racist rubes. You know, deplorables. And yet, they’re actually average Americans hungry for something smart to read.
I’ve noticed on the website that when I take lots of time to think through an argument and express it, even in a relatively long piece, I get more reaction and more hits. And that’s why I never underestimate the intellect of the average American — or overestimate my own.
Particularly conservatives, who have had to make the leap in their minds from what feels good — throw government money at a problem — to what actually works. That requires thinking and, moreover, disciplined thought
