How did our great America get to the state we find ourselves in today? This is explained in a new book called Grave Influence: 21 Radicals and Their Worldviews that Rule America from the Grave by Brannon Howse. The author leads readers on a whirlwind tour of 21 historical figures and the anti-capitalist, anti-Christian worldviews that motivated them to plan and promote the destruction of America, the most free and successful nation in history. Brannon Howse summarizes the influence of radical philosophers and their impact on contemporary leaders.
Some names in this gallery of radicals are familiar, such as Friedrich Nietzsche, John Dewey, and Alfred Kinsey. John Dewey, who is famous as the so-called “father of modern American education,” was a leader in the Marxist movement. His major interest in schooling children was not to teach them history, science or literature, but to change their values and make them dutiful to the socialist state. Other destructive persons of influence include John Maynard Keynes, Betty Friedan, and the Chicago radical Saul Alinsky. The 21 short biographies in this book provide a startling picture of their worldviews that, with hindsight, we can see are driving America steadily towards globalism, socialistic governance and pantheistic spirituality. Along the way, Americans are taught Darwinian evolution, radical environmentalism, and the welfare state. That is all part of the plan to put America under concentrated power and globalism.
The author Brannon Howse names present-day people, organizations and movements who are complicit in these trends. He explains the terminology that deceives ordinary people. The author writes from a Christian perspective, but all conservatives will appreciate the unmasking of America’s enemies in our government and in our educational establishment. The name of this useful book is Grave Influence: 21 Radicals and Their Worldviews that Rule America from the Grave.
