If you’re looking for all of the shelves in the GiN Reading Room, you’ll find them here.

None Dare Call It Conspiracy by Gary Allen with Larry Abraham

This book, which I first read in 1975, literally changed my life. (I used to believe there was a difference between the Republican and Democratic Parties!) Once I understood from whence all our nation’s problems emanated (the elite who support international socialism: New World Order/World Government) I was able to see beyond the controlled news media and ultimately went on to write my own history of education “the deliberate dumbing down of America”. Allen’s book should be required reading for every high school graduate. Hats off to the publisher who saw the need to republish it at this crucial time in our nation’s history. -Barnes and Noble reader summary/review

The Age of the Unthinkable:  Why the New World Disorder Constantly Surprises Us and What We Can Do About It by Joshua Cooper Ramo

For decades, American foreign policy has been based on the seductive belief that there exists a logical relationship between power of states and the physics of change. And yet today policies designed to make us safer instead make the world more perilous. History’s grandest war against terrorism creates more terrorists. Global capitalism, intended to boost the quality of life of people around the world, increases the gap between rich and poor. Decisions taken to stem a financial crisis guarantee its arrival. Environmental techniques engineered to protect species lead to their extinction. Middle East peace plans produce less peace. Our world is not becoming more stable or flatter or easier to comprehend. And what we face isn’t one single shift, like the end of World War Two or the collapse of the Soviet Union, so much as a revolutionary avalanche of ceaseless change.

Shut Up, America!:  The End of Free Speech by Brad O’Leary

Can you be trusted with free speech? Many politicians in Washington don’t think so. They see your right to free speech as a threat to their seat in power. In this hard-hitting book, bestselling author Brad O’Leary exposes the frightening movement afoot that would eviscerate the First Amendment.  With his trademark, take-no-prisoners approach, O’Leary shows you how censorship is on the march. From the Orwellian “Fairness Doctrine” to so-called “campaign finance reform,” you will learn the real threats, who the enemies of Ben Franklin and Thomas Paine are (including names of senators, congressmen, and Obama administration officials), what they’re up to, and how you can fight back and save your freedom.

America’s March to Socialism:  Why We’re One Step Closer to Giant Missle Parades(download) by Glenn Beck

From massive government spending to media declarations of the death of capitalism, Glenn Beck hears the sounds of boots marching America toward a system of government that bears a closer resemblance to socialism with each passing day. To document this, he focuses on stories that range from the headlines – irresponsible stimulus spending, greenhouse gas cap-and-trade programs, instant unionization efforts – to more obscure local stories that might otherwise be overlooked, such as Chicago’s out-of-towners tax, and Connecticut’s attempt to undermine the authority of the Catholic Church. He also provides snapshots of the encroaching progress of socialistic programs from around the world, railing against the Europeans’ call for a global New Deal.

Anthem by Ayn Rand

Anthem is Ayn Rand’s classic tale of a dark future age of the great “We”-a world that deprives individuals of name, independence, and values. Written a full decade before George Orwell’s “1984,” this dystopian novel depicts a man who seeks escape from a society in which individuality has been utterly destroyed. Rand expertly shows how collectivism (including social programs in the United States) destroys freedom and individuality. Her philosophy is simple: “planning” is a synonym for “collectivism,” and “collectivism” is a metaphor for communism and tyranny. This important book should be read by all who are concerned about the role of government in modern life.
