The War on the West book cover
The War on the West
Douglas Murray - 2022-04-26
Рейтинг Goodreads
In The War on the West, bestselling author Douglas Murray challenges why only Western nations are blamed for the flaws in humankind's history. Murray explores how discussing the flaws and crimes of non-Western cultures is deemed hate speech, while celebrating their contributions is acceptable. He exposes how dishonest scholars, hatemongers, hostile nations, and human rights abusers use polarization and lies to distract from their ongoing villainy while attacking reason, democracy, science, progress, and the citizens of the West. From highlighting the hypocrisy in protests to defending enlightenment values, Murray calls for a necessary reckoning and defense of justice and equality.

"And into the silence left by the impossibility of saying what is true, anything and everything can roam." Thanks @DouglasKMurray for an excellent and timely book, The War on the West. It makes it easier for the rest of us to tell the truth.      источник

Безумие толпы
Как мир сошел с ума от толерантности и попыток угодить всем
Douglas Murray - 2019-09-17
Рейтинг Goodreads
В "Безумии толпы" Дуглас Мюррей исследует опасности "культуры отмены" и роста политики идентичности, которые все чаще становятся не способом защитить угнетенных, а инструментом наказания несогласных. Он обращается к таким противоречивым вопросам современности как сексуальность, пол, раса и влияние технологий на наше поведение в Интернете, где нам следует заново научиться прощению и состраданию. Дуглас Мюррей один из немногих авторов, осмеливающихся опровергнуть преобладающее общественное мнение и поставить под сомнение драматические изменения в нашем обществе - от хирургической коррекции пола детям до того, как права трансгендерных людей влияют на женщин. Проницательная книга Мюррея возвращает здравый смысл в хаос сложных моральных дилемм современности.

1) The past 10 yrs should be designated, negatively, the "decade of the mob," facilitated by social media. It is fitting that the decade ends with Douglas Murray's brilliant book "the Madness of Crowds". And Corbyn's boast that the Twitter mob stood firmly behind him.      источник

Unravelling Ace Magashule’s Web of Capture
Pieter-Louis Myburgh - 2019-04-01
Рейтинг Goodreads
In spite of Cyril Ramaphosa’s ‘new dawn’, there are powerful forces in the ruling party that risk losing everything if corruption and state capture finally do come to an end. At the centre of the old guard’s fightback efforts is Ace Magashule, a man viewed by some as South Africa’s most dangerous politician....

Here's a book that everyone needs to read before regretting their vote for the mirage called "New Dawn".      источник
Coalition country book cover
Coalition country
Leon Schreiber - 2018-03-19
Рейтинг Goodreads
This book delves into the current political situation in South Africa and the potential dramatic shift in power that may occur. With the ANC's hold on the government weakening, the 2019 elections could bring about a new leader, including Mmusi Maimane and Julius Malema. What will this mean for the country? This is a must-read for those interested in global politics and current events.

Just spent the past two hours reading this excellent book on the emergence and future of coalition-building in SA and the key lessons from our experiences so far. Wish this book existed in 2006 when the DA governed Cape Town in a 7-party coalition!      источник
Sapiens book cover
Краткая история человечества
Yuval Noah Harari - 2015-01-01 (впервые опубликовано в 2011)
Рейтинг Goodreads
Сто тысяч лет назад Homo sapiens был одним из как минимум шести видов человека, живших на этой планете, – ничем не примечательным животным, которое играло в экосистеме роль не большую, чем гориллы, светлячки или медузы. Но около семидесяти тысяч лет назад загадочное изменение когнитивных способностей Homo sapiens превратило его в хозяина планеты и кошмар экосистемы. Как человек разумный сумел покорить мир? Что стало с другими видами человека? Когда и почему появились деньги, государства и религия? Как возникали и рушились империи? Почему почти все общества ставили женщин ниже мужчин? Как наука и капитализм стали господствующими вероучениями современной эры? Становились ли люди с течением времени счастливее? Какое будущее нас ожидает? Юваль Харари показывает, как ход истории формировал человеческое общество и действительность вокруг него. Его книга прослеживает связь между событиями прошлого и проблемами современности и заставляет читателя пересмотреть все устоявшиеся представления об окружающем мире.

@Savo_Heleta Just a little quote from Yuval Harari's Sapiens, one of the best books I read this year. Someone should have given it to you for Christmas, if you are prepared to look beyond your Fanon blinkers.      источник

Having just read these two excellent books, it boggles the mind that the Zuma faction can still mobilise 50% of delegates to the ANC conference. Bottom line: they voted for criminality and the destruction of democracy. A huge challenge lies ahead.      источник

The end of the South African university

When does a university cease to exist? South African universities, very soon, unless drastic action is taken....

I agree. It is a profound book, which shows exactly the enormous shift away from the Mandela era. Essential reading.      источник
