By Ilana Mercer

Into the Cannibal's Pot: classes for the US from post-Apartheid South Africa is a polemical paintings anchored in background, truth, truth, and the political philosophy of classical liberalism. it's a manifesto opposed to mass society, arguing opposed to uncooked, ripe, democracy, right here (in the US), there (in South Africa), and far and wide. Into the Cannibal's Pot follows Russell Kirk's competition that actual freedom are available simply in the framework of a social order. it's a reminder that, although imperfect, civilized societies are fragile. they could, and should, disintegrate in culturally inhospitable climes. The tyranny of political correctness, so exact to the West performs a job of their near-collapse. complicated societies do not simply die; they both wither from inside of, or, like South Africa, are entire off via different western societies. Ilana Mercer gives you a compelling publication; it really is required studying for considering those that care concerning the future of western civilization.
