    2. This book is a critique of the so called conservative movement which has marched towards the left from the 1950s till today and has captured the Republican Party The movement speechifies about conservative values , which are nothing but hollow terms that cover up the movements leftist bias Conservatism is something distinct from the Right, according to the author And the so called conservatism of today is blocking the rise of a genuine Right in the USA to counter the Establishment Left The book [...]
