Ben Shapiro's The Right Side of History - his primary thesis is that the combination of Judeo-Christian values and Greek's power of reason provided the basis for the great achievements of  Western civilization and most specifically the United States.  The US in particular got things right with the adherence to Judeo-Christian values and Greek reasoning in developing the Constitution and governmental structure.  He provides a lot of basis for this and relates the ideas of the key philosophers over history to governmental structures.  The last part is primarily his concern about the breakdown of our values and reasoning and that it is jeopardizing the greatness of our society.  It is a well thought out book whether you believe in his views of current society.

Oh God. No I don't believe his views of current society.

Ben Shapiro can't stop contradicting himself

One confused lad.

This piece of filth says it all about his thesis:

"(T)he Jews who vote for Obama are, by and large, Jews In Name Only (JINOs). They eat bagels and lox; they watch 'Schindler’s List'; they visit temple on Yom Kippur — sometimes. But they do not care about Israel.”

Nothing worse in my book than a Jew who takes it about himself to tell Jews who isn't and who is Jewish.
