BOOK RECOMMENDATION: David Kupelian’s The Marketing of Evil: How Radicals, Elitists, and Pseudo-Experts Sell Us Corruption Disguised As Freedom.

How have we gotten to the point we are at with so many of our societal problems… so quickly?

The changes seem coordinated, truly evil, and unstoppable.

A while back I recommended a book by David Kupelian called The Marketing of Evil: How Radicals, Elitists, and Pseudo-Experts Sell Us Corruption Disguised As Freedom.

This is a helpful book, and i have mentioned it before.  Even though it only has a couple chapters on the media, which is my focus these days. Kupelian’s book explains a lot.

US Kindle HERE.

UK book HERE.

It references these USA, but it is surely useful for a UK reader as well.

A friend sent me a link to a blog that has a panicky diatribe against the book.  HERE

Here is a sample:

Churches ‘on fire’ over “Marketing of Evil”
Posted on July 28, 2012 by Jean
What a surprise awaited me on this one! I thought somebody’s figured out how churches have been duped into buying into anti-gay and no-abortion ideas, all used to divide humanity and create hatred!

The post goes on to lament that the book is being bought by the cart loads by protestants and organizations are using it as a tool for their ministry.

The book is not written from a Catholic perspective, but it remains useful. I recommend it again. This could be a good book for a young people’s (not children’s) study group, for example.

If you get it, please use my link, above.

    That website’s commenters are a hoot! God as ET? How did people so radically lose their hold on reality?

    Not only the commenters, frahobbit! Click on the about me tab! I bet she is high on the list of speakers for the LCWR

    I did read the book on Fr.Z’s recommendation (from the library). It explained a lot that I have seen since being a teenager during the 60’s.

  4. Kupelian’s book is indeed not from a Catholic perspective, but it is good and I second the recommendation.

    That website is indeed surreal. It uses the same WordPress theme as this one…

    I’d opened it in a new tab and didn’t get around to reading it until morning. I forgot where I was. I thought I’d lost my mind or inadvertently died and been rushed off to the other place without judgement.

    Until I saw the pingback to this website.
