The most important (and entertaining) book of the year is “America Alone” by Mark Steyn. It is the book that I have recommended to everyone I know, the book I consider a must-read for everyone, regardless of political affiliation.
Last night, I saw this year’s must-see movie: Evan Coyne Maloney’s Indoctrinate U. I saw the early incarnation of this film, when it was called “Brainwashing 101″, during that conservative film festival in Dallas, and it was so powerful in its exposure of speech codes and anti-freedom activities on our college campuses. The full-length movie is even more so. You must see it. You must tell everyone you know to see it.
Steyn’s book is about the numbers problem: reproduction is at an all-time low in the western world and we risk losing the war of ideas to the Islamofascists because with child-bearing numbers being as they are, there just won’t be enough of us around to defend the positions of a free society. Evan’s movie shows that defending those positions is a risky business, even today, even here in America. It isn’t a Republican thing, it’s a freedom thing. One guy in the movie was nearly expelled from his college because he put up a flier which “caused offense”. The flier consisted of the name of a book by a speaker visiting the campus. The fact that this innocuous flier could get him nearly expelled should be chilling to everyone, even those that voted for John Kerry in the last election.
I know most people who read this blog, or blogs in general, will be savvy to this type of thing. We know about political correctness and speech codes and the appalling lack of intellectual diversity on campus. Still, nothing can prepare you for seeing an entire film on this premise. You can’t be ready for the kind of abuse documented in the film and the lengths that students and teachers have gone through to fight a system of speech codes and political correctness that has a chokehold on our colleges.
On the Indoctrinate U. site, you can request a local screening of the movie. Click over and do that, it’s the best way to get this movie more exposure, something all freedom-lovers, whether Republican or Democrat should want.
