“The Battle for Liberty, The Struggle Against Despotism.” By: Phyllis Chesler

For six years, Jamie Glazov has been my editor at Frontpage magazine. While he is still the editor there, Glazov is now also the author of a new and very important book, one that was hard for me to read, but even harder for me to put down. It was “hard” because, like so many others, I was once an admirer of the Left , a woman of the Left; that story.

Glazov’s sobering, gripping, and very well written work, United in Hate: The Left’s Romance With Tyranny and Terror, ( WND Books/WorldNetDaily), should be required reading at every university. Psycho-analysts, many of whom are, themselves, in “denial,” and left-wing intellectuals everywhere, need to grapple with Glazov’s information and point of view. His subject concerns the survival of the human race and the tragic blood letting that has been done in the name of progressive, even salvational ideology.

The modern infatuation with tyranny; the belief that if humanity is to improve humanity, that they can only do so through cruelty, repression, and mass murder, including genocide, is a terrifying reality and one that Glazov analyzes carefully, almost surgically. Although the information is now in about Stalin, Mao, Castro–and their most logical and terrifying descendents, the Islamist-jihadists, nevertheless, thinking, caring leftists and fellow traveler progressives, dare not acknowledge the evil that has been done for the sake of “good,” lest doing so will force them to take responsibility and experience guilt for all the blood shed on their watch.

Freud might say that Glazov is trying to strengthen Eros, the life force, in us and is doing monumental battle with Thanatos, the death instinct. In this work, Glazov has gone beyond Alice Miller and Eric Hoffer.

I congratulate him and I strongly recommend the work.

Earlier today, I interviewed him. Although we may have more to say to each other, I wanted to share this with my readers quickly.
