Janet Levy writing at American Thinker today reviews Robert Chandler’s book, “Shadow World: Resurgent Russia, The Global New Left, and Radical Islam.” Levy concludes:
The United States is at a critical juncture in its history faced with threats from international Marxists, an internal socialist movement and global jihadists. Once any of these elements achieves significant positions of power within the United States, they will proceed with their plans to destroy Western civilization. Our freedom, sovereignty and way of life could be extinguished by any of these forces that are acting against our democratic republic. Robert Chandler’s warnings in Shadow World must be heeded if we are to survive.
Read the review, get the book, and get to work!
Find your place, your role, in saving America. Let me make a recommendation. Don’t spend a lot of time being anxious and running around like a chicken with your head cut off. Read this book, but don’t spend all your time wallowing in books like this. If you care about our way of life, our freedom and our great country then examine your talents and find a place to apply them.
Are you good with people in your community, then be a community organizer for the right side. Find like-minded people and figure out ways to spread the word. Create new groups. Join existing community groups and speak up.
Can you write? Then send letters to editors, government officials, etc. Better still, start your own blog and find some area that needs to be exposed—don’t just yak, do research and figure out ways to make your work public, bypassing the mainstream media. Comment at other people’s blogs.
Join some of the mushrooming number of conservative organizing groups on the internet. Join a religious conservative group. Join a gun club! Help build coalitions of groups. By the way, building coalitions is a bedrock strategy of the Alinsky school of community organizing.
I think conservative talk radio is great, but it can have the effect of making you think our views are being heard. Encourage talk radio hosts to give more instructions on action that needs to be taken. I don’t think conservative listeners always know what to do with the information they have been given.
Anyway, you get the gist! Find your place, go to work and don’t get too anxious about the big picture (keep it in the back of your mind), but don’t let it consume you.
