America-Lite America Lite where we all live is just like America, only turned into an amusement park or a video game or a supersized Pinkberry, where the past and future are blank and there is only a big NOW How did we come to expect no virtue and so much cynicism from our culture, our leaders and each other In this refreshingly judgmental book, David Gelernter connects the historical dots to reveal a stealth revolution carried out by post religious globalist intellectuals who, by and large, can t run their own universities or scholarly fields, but are very sure they can run you These imperial academics have deployed their students into the top echelon of professions once monopolized by staid and steady WASPs In this simple way, they have installed themselves as the new designated drivers of American culture.Imperial academics live in a world of theory they preach disdain for mere facts and for old fashioned fact based judgments like true or false Schoolchildren are routinely taught theories about history instead of actual history they learn, for example, that all nations are equally nice except for America, which is nearly always nasty.With academic experts to do our thinking for us, we ve politely shut up and let second raters take the wheel In fact, we have handed the keys to the star pupil and teacher s pet of the post religious globalist intellectuals, whose election to the presidency of the United States constituted the ultimate global group hug.How do we finally face the truth and get back into the driver s seat America Lite ends with a one point plan.

    Since the current speculation is that this guy could be the official science adviser for the Trump administration, I thought it would be worth getting to know him This book reads like your cringe inducing uncle s entertaining but ugly jeremiad about how all the problems in America can be traced back to the cultural revolution of the 1960s The first half of that decade is described as our Periclean years, when it was still okay to be a red blooded American After the cultural revolution, the Since the current speculation is that this guy could be the official science adviser for the Trump administration, I thought it would be worth getting to know him This book reads like your cringe inducing uncle s entertaining but ugly jeremiad about how all the problems in America can be traced back to the cultural revolution of the 1960s The first half of that decade is described as our Periclean years, when it was still okay to be a red blooded American After the cultural revolution, the left libs took over The people in senior positions of power now are the first to have been educated indoctrinated by lefties They may be smart and well intentioned, but they are ignorant Also, ...
