In this academic guide to postmodern philosophy, Dr. Keene F. Tiedemann explains how and why “progressive” scholars engage in a covert cultural war against traditional American values.... More > Dr. Tiedemann’s empirical evidence suggests that we are being indoctrinated into a relativist ideology that is coarsening our culture and removing civility from the public square. He powerfully illustrates how we have been betrayed to our spiritual core by the deconstruction of our cultural heritage with revisionist history and the destruction of the Judeo-Christian philosophy upon which this nation was founded. His masterful research analyses how the advance of pantheistic and atheistic paradigms promote the amoral agenda advocated by America’s current generation of postmodern politicians. This agenda allows heinous acts of immorality to infiltrate the public domain. This work is a MUST READ for anyone interested in protecting our American heritage!< Less
