The redoubtable Olivia has just published a new book on Amazon, Western Values Defended: A Primer. Here's what one remarkably perspicacious luminary has said about it:

'Western Values Defended: A Primer' by Olivia Pierson is an eloquent reminder that superstition is the enemy of enlightenment. It is a series of salutary snapshots from the last two millennia illustrating the pitched battle the forces of reason and its corollaries, freedom and prosperity, have had to wage against unreason and its corollaries, deprivation and barbarism. It is tempting, in our current context, to believe that Islam is the sole repository of the latter; Pierson's primer, while justly indicting Islam, is also a sobering testament that in its heyday, Christianity could be just as virulent—and that, to paraphrase and juxtapose one of the book's icons, Thomas Jefferson, the price of liberty is eternal hostility to any form of tyranny over the minds of men. Fashionable multiculturalism, she points out also, is one such form. 'Western Values Defended,' by contrast, is a proud paean to each human individual's inalienable rights to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.

It's here.

Go buy it at once and help ward off evil anti-Western Dem-scum!

I hope you're right. Notice that the Republican Party establishment has trotted out serial traitor Lindsey Graham in response.

Congratulations on your book being completed and published.

are you being serious? It's hard to know when you refer to me as Oblivia.

I love your book.

I just watched Trump...

give his foreign policy address. Absolutely outstanding!!! His tenacious commitment to putting American interests first is laudable - and exactly what a President is elected to do. Peace through strength. He is going to make a fine President. Smiling

Thanks Mark and Michael about my book. (Mark, Mrs H obviously has good powers of perception.)

Trump Hatred

Neil Parille's picture

I don't know why Objectivists hate Trump so much. He is not a religious conservative (in any serious sense) and he is more supportive of free enterprise than any Democrats (which isn't saying much).

It's another example of Objectivists viewing the world through the narrow grid they have been provided. You know, Leonard Peikoff said in The Ominous Parallels that we are heading for Fascism, so a "populist" like Trump has to be some precursor to authoritarianism (as Brook said recently).

Too bad Binswanger, Biddle, Brook, etc. can't hate Islamic immigration as much as they hate Trump.

The Spanish Inquisition killed something like 16,000 people in a few hundred years. That's what atheists like Stalin killed in a day. And if ISIS had their way, they would kill 16,000 in a day.

Trump and Western Values

Lindsay Perigo's picture

Last part of Trump's speech today:

**********************************

Finally, I will work with our allies to reinvigorate Western values and institutions. Instead of trying to spread universal values that not everybody shares or wants, we should understand that strengthening and promoting Western civilization and its accomplishments will do more to inspire positive reforms around the world than military interventions.

(APPLAUSE)

These are my goals as president. I will seek a foreign policy that all Americans, whatever their party, can support, so important, and which our friends and allies will respect and totally welcome. The world must know that we do not go abroad in search of enemies, that we are always happy when old enemies become friends and when old friends become allies, that’s what we want. We want them to be our allies.
We want the world to be — we want to bring peace to the world. Too much destruction out there, too many destructive weapons. The power of weaponry is the single biggest problem that we have today in the world.

To achieve these goals, Americans must have confidence in their country and its leadership. Again, many Americans must wonder why we our politicians seem more interested in defending the borders of foreign countries than in defending their own. Americans…

(APPLAUSE)

Americans must know that we’re putting the American people first again on trade.

(APPLAUSE)

So true. On trade, on immigration, on foreign policy. The jobs, incomes and security of the American worker will always be my first priority.
(APPLAUSE)

No country has ever prospered that failed to put its own interests first. Both our friends and our enemies put their countries above ours and we, while being fair to them, must start doing the same. We will no longer surrender this country or its people to the false song of globalism. The nation-state remains the true foundation for happiness and harmony. I am skeptical of international unions that tie us up and bring America down and will never enter…

(APPLAUSE)

TRUMP: And under my administration, we will never enter America into any agreement that reduces our ability to control our own affairs.
(APPLAUSE)

NAFTA, as an example, has been a total disaster for the United States and has emptied our states — literally emptied our states of our manufacturing and our jobs. And I’ve just gotten to see it. I’ve toured Pennsylvania. I’ve toured New York. I’ve toured so many of the states. They have been cleaned out. Their manufacturing is gone.

Never again, only the reverse — and I have to say this strongly — never again; only the reverse will happen. We will keep our jobs and bring in new ones. There will be consequences for the companies that leave the United States only to exploit it later. They fire the people. They take advantage of the United States. There will be consequences for those companies. Never again.

Under a Trump administration, no American citizen will ever again feel that their needs come second to the citizens of a foreign country.
(APPLAUSE)

I will view as president the world through the clear lens of American interests. I will be America’s greatest defender and most loyal champion. We will not apologize for becoming successful again, but will instead embrace the unique heritage that makes us who we are.
The world is most peaceful and most prosperous when America is strongest. America will continue and continue forever to play the role of peacemaker. We will always help save lives and indeed humanity itself, but to play the role, we must make America strong again.

(APPLAUSE)

And always — always, always, we must make, and we have to look at it from every angle, and we have no choice, we must make America respected again. We must make America truly wealthy again. And we must — we have to and we will make America great again. And if we do that — and if we do that, perhaps this century can be the most peaceful and prosperous the world has ever, ever known. Thank you very much, everybody. I appreciate it. Thank you.

Yesterday I got Western

Yesterday I got Western Values Defended: A Primer. So far a great read. Congrats Olivia! Today in Trump's very presidential foreign policy speech he called for a recommitment to Western values. I am all in for a western resurgence.

I don't recall Olivia congratulating me on my publications such as my critique of PARC.

You should know that someone pretending to be you is parading an astonishing ignorance of history in your name. In your name this imposter asks:

I realize Christians have done some bad things, but can you point to any historical examples of what Christians did that was like what ISIS is doing in the Middle East?

I know that, being as intelligent as you are, you recognise that the God of the Goblianity narrative, who tortures trillions of human beings for ever knowing in advance that he would do precisely that if he proceeded with his Narcissistic exercise, is a cosmic monster. I know also that the real you cannot be unaware that this monster's earthly representatives have, when politically dominant, been exactly the sorts of sick sadistic fucks you would expect, given the nature of the monster they worship. Next to them, ISIS are wimps and amateurs. For example:

I think you should expose and repudiate this imposter and establish your credentials as a human being as a matter of urgency.

Is this your annual cameo on SOLO? Smiling If so I'm delighted that Lady Slapper's book is what occasioned it.

I see that it's still #1, ahead not just of To Kill a Mockingbird but also of Tantric Massage!!

At this rate, Bro Hubbard, by the time you get to Total Passion I'll have published the sequel!

Pauline (aka Mrs H said this morning 'that book you just bought is in the bestseller lists, I might read it.'

Me: looks to sky.

Well done Olivia.

[Now, I've got to make time to read Linsday's 'Passion' which I bought an age ago. He should've done it as a primer Smiling ... Running.]

Number 1 in two Amazon Best Seller categories this morning....

In Education Philosophy and Social Aspects. Outsold To Kill a Mockingbird Eye! Of course these rankings change from hour to hour but mine seems to be holding. http://www.amazon.com/gp/bests... Also number 1 in Education and Reference, which pleases me! (Education and Teaching, Schools and Teaching.) Number 3 in Philosophy and Social Aspects of Education. (Teacher Resources & Education Theory.) Thanks very much Philip! Smiling

PhilipD's picture

Down where he lives in his parent’s basement, Neil trembles and unzips his fly. For he finally has purpose in his life again- the immediate knocking of an achievement.

Neil, it’s just good manners to congratulate someone you know (even if only an online acquaintance) on finishing a book. Once that’s done you can start wanking again….

Congratulations, Olivia.

Great interview with an attractive woman. "We need a male revolution." Sounds like she is Christian. She wants European men to defend their women-folk. Maybe Yaron Brook will talk about this before his wife is forced to wear a Burka.

Linz:

"Pierson's primer, while justly indicting Islam, is also a sobering testament that in its heyday, Christianity could be just as virulent . . . "

I realize Christians have done some bad things, but can you point to any historical examples of what Christians did that was like what ISIS is doing in the Middle East?

For example, sex slaves . . .

And don't give me that Hypatia crap.

-NP

Right on cue.

Olivia's picture

Yeah, I bet- your idea of a "mistake" is a fact that doesn't support the Christian Faith to be "the truth."

Neil Parille's picture

Sorry, but I just bought the book. Found plenty of mistakes already . . . .

Just made number 2 on Amazon Best Sellers in its Category!

Olivia's picture

And short listed in other categories: History, 90 Minute Short Reads and Education.

I'm rapt.

To all my friends who care about Western Values being defended, go and purchase and feel free to write me a good review!

Except you Neil - as you will only nitpick the shit out of it, as is your wont. Eye

Western Values Defended - a Primer

And for only a ludicrous

And for only a ludicrous 99cents (US), a steal.

In my Kindle queue ... look forward to reading next up Olivia.
