Об этой аудиокниге

Is America a source of pride, as Americans have long held, or shame, as Progressives allege? Beneath an innocent exterior, are our lives complicit in a national project of theft, expropriation, oppression, and murder, or is America still the hope of the world?

New York Times bestselling author Dinesh D'Souza says these questions are no mere academic exercise. It is the Progressive view that is taught in our schools, that is preached by Hollywood, and that shapes the policies of the Obama administration. If America is a force for inequality and injustice in the world, its power deserves to be diminished; if traditional America is based on oppression and theft, then traditional America must be reformed-and the federal government can do the reforming.

In America: Imagine a World without Her D'Souza offers a passionate and sharply reasoned defense of America, knocking down every important accusation made by Progressives against our country.

Is America a source of pride, as Americans have long held, or shame, as Progressives allege? Beneath an innocent exterior, are our lives complicit in a national project of theft, expropriation, oppression, and murder, or is America still the hope of the world? Provocative in its analysis, stunning in its conclusions, Dinesh D'Souza's America will be the most talked about audiobook of the year.

    This book should be read by all Americans. 2016 saw a transforming election and in 2018 we see that transformation won’t last unless we work at it.

    D'Souza's America is a powerful historical and political treatise that stands as the antithesis of Howard Zinn's People's History and attempts to explain the agenda of Obama and the radical left. This
    book may not appeal to those who embrace today's Left, but to those
    of us in the mainstream who are mystified at a president (0bama) who goes to a ballgame while Americans and other Westerners are slaughtered by Jihadi crazies or are mystified at the politically correct agenda we see on college campuses defaming cherished history and brooking no dissent, D'Souza puts it into a historical framework that makes sense.
    Ironically, it takes an immigrant from India to understand Western Civilization and to want to preserve the values of 1776 that make America great.

    D'Souza begins by setting out two competing visions of America, that
    which Toqueville saw soon after the nation was founded and that of Focault which epitomized the anti-colonial lens of 1968 radicals including those at whose knee a young Obama learned such as Ayres
    and Alinsky. The 1776 view was one of optimism, of promise, of economic liberty (capitalism). The 1968 view was hatched in anti-war and free love hippiedom but also an analysis that posited that America
    was a colonial power and such colonialism was evil and its power and wealth unfairly achieved.

    D'Souza then proceeds to address radical left claims stemming from the anti-colonialist view and posits logical arguments against such claims. He addresses, for instance, the claim that the Southwest was stolen from Hispanics and asserts that its historical nonsense. He
    addresses the ridiculousness of Reparations for slavery when no one alive now was involved and most Americans of any race are not even descended from either slaves or slaveowners. D'Douza addresses the concept that you didn't build that business and the Marxist idea that the wealthy stole their wealth and are undeserving of it. He addresses why Obamacare is wrong and why a flat tax would be fair.

    In the end, as a reader, you are shocked to realize that what you see is true - a radical movement exists that sees 1776 as unfair, unjust, and mperial and wants to tear it down and impose its own version of fairness on a new America.
