The Devil’s Pleasure Palace
A critique of the Frankfort School philosophers and their influence on the modern Left. An influence that the typical Leftist is completely unaware of.
The book is just okay, but it does have a few gems in it, such as…
“What would the Left do without delusion? It is the cornerstone of their philosophy. A desperate desire to look at plain facts, clear meaning, and see otherwise. To see in fact the complete opposite. From this standpoint, nothing is ever what it seems, unless it conforms with Leftist dogma, and everything else must be challenged.”
“Leftism masquerades as sophistication and expertise, but the mask conceals intellectual juvenile delinquency, gussied up in Hegelian drag.”
