A powerful, thoughtful response to the threat posed by the cultural-left to Western civilisation. This book explores the rise of political correctness in Australia including: the dangers of Islamic fundamentalism; Safe Schools, same-sex marriage and the LGBTQI sexuality and gender agenda; what it means to be Australian, and much more. 'Kevin Donnelly is a persuasive contributor to the endless battle of ideas. He fights the good fight. He continually reminds us of the debt we owe to western civilisation, and in particular the extent to which Judaeo-Christian values have shaped so much of what we hold dear.' John Howard, former prime minister of Australia. Similar to what is happening in America, Europe and the UK, political correctness is destroying Australias cultural heritage and what is best about our institutions and way of life.

This is what Dr Kevin Donnelly explores in How Political Correctness is Destroying Australia. No longer is it possible to acknowledge and celebrate the debt owed to Western civilisation and to argue that Judeo-Christianity and epochal events like the Renaissance, Reformation and the Enlightenment deserve to be praised. Political correctness is also responsible for restricting free speech and open and dispassionate debate. Everyday conversations and interactions are closely scrutinised by the thought-police to ensure nobody offends in areas like gender and sexuality, ethnicity, physical appearance or social background.

There is an alternative to political correctness and the cultural-lefts long march through the institutions. As Donnelly argues in this book, there is much of value and beneficial about Western civilisation and our way of life. Unlike the millions around the world living under the tyranny of totalitarian dictatorships and oligarchies those in the West are guaranteed freedom, liberty and equality before the law, as long as we continue to fight for it.

WRITE A REVIEW

A light in our politically correct darkness

5

Brilliant book stating things that NEED TO BE SAID. The clarity of thinking in this book is just what we need as a nation.

Scaremongering rubbish

1

Written by someone who believes in the old leftist agenda in schools conspiracy theories, this book has a few cherry picked examples and makes out like they are representative of all education. Seriously- think about it- in reality most teachers teach and try to look out for the welfare of their students- but this book sees hidden issues that really teachers are trying to subversively change student into a bunch of Greens voters.

This book was such an eye opener and a must read for anybody who is interested in what is happening in our education system especially parents whose children are about to start school. Kevin Donnelly is to be congratulated on such an informative book. I have been able to quote so many facts in discussion with friends that I was unaware of before reading this book.

Political Correctness

This book is very repetitive. It appears as though Dr Donelly has cut and pasted the same text into many places in different chapters. The ideas are really good, but we do not need to hear them so many times over.

The Raw Truth

Love knowing how it really is with proven facts. Not through the eyes of others.

Poorly written - repetitive and unstrutured

2

I was really looking forward to reading this book, and although I agreed strongly with the bulk of the content - which is incredibly alarming - I found it to be poorly written and unstructured, with many of the same expressions and rhetoric repeated ad nauseam throughout. It really could have done with a review by a sub-editor. What at first appears as sharp and punchy catch-cries and anecdotes, become annoying after the third and fourth repetition. Some great content, let down by the sense this was a rushed history essay without the benefit of refinement.

Melbourne

true

Every Australian needs to read this book!

The apathetic majority needs to rise up and stop the socialists before it's too late! Free speech is under challenge in this country like never before! Our universities need to be challenged and their leftist policies stopped we need balanced debate without victimisation !!!
