The Rage Against God: Why Faith is the Foundation of Civilisation by Peter Hitchens
awesomebooks.com
In a fascinating account, Peter Hitchens describes his autobiographical and spiritual journey from atheism to faith in God through the power of reasoning. Peter Hitchens lost faith in his teenage years. But eventually finding atheism barren, he came by a process of logic and poetry to his current affiliation to an unmodernized belief in Christianity. Hitchens describes how he returned from the far political left- and from Bohemia. Familiar with British left-wing politics, it was traveling in the Communist bloc that first undermined his leftism and then replaced it, a process which was more or less completed when he became a newspaper's resident correspondent in Moscow in 1990, just before the collapse of the Communist Party. He became convinced of certain propositions. That modern western social democratic politics is a form of false religion in which people try to substitute a social conscience for an individual one. That utopianism is actively dangerous. That liberty and law are attainable human objectives which are also the good by-products of Christian faith.Faith is the best antidote to utopianism, dismissing the dangerous idea of earthly perfection, discouraging men and women from acting as if they were God, encouraging men and women to act in the belief that there is a God and an ordered, purposeful universe, governed by an unalterable law.  read more

The Cameron Delusion: Updated edition of The Broken Compass by Peter Hitchens
awesomebooks.com
The struggle between the main political parties has been reduced to an unpopularity contest, in which voters hold their noses and sigh as they trudge to the polls. Peter Hitchens explains how and why British politics has sunk to this dreary level - the takeover of the parties and the media by conventional left-wing dogmas which then call themselves 'the centre ground'. The Tory party under David Cameron has become a pale-blue twin of New Labour, offering change without alteration. Hitchens, a former Lobby reporter, examines and mocks the flock mentality of most Westminster journalists, explains how unattributable lunches guide coverage and why so many reporters - once slavish admirers of Labour - now follow the Tory line. This revised edition of Hitchens's The Broken Compass (2009) features a brand new introduction. In an excoriating analysis, Hitchens examines the Tory Party's record in government and opposition, dismissing it as a failure on all fronts but one - the ability to win office without principle. The one thing it certainly isn't is conservative.  read more
