Long Overdue Honesty About Educational Bias
Reviewer Ken Stange
 September 03, 2007
An impassioned plea and well reasoned argument for fundamental human rights -- which are now, tragically and ironically. being threatened by those who most loudly claim to be their promoters. The right to freedom of expression is the cornerstone of all human liberties, and paradoxically it is those who sanctimoniously claim to be most concerned with human rights and dignity who are the ones that now present the greatest threat to these values. I'm not alone in being a member of the generation that initially embraced leftist politics and thought we could fix all the problems of the world but have subsequently been dismayed and appalled and disillusioned to see the politically-correct left adopt the worse tactics, policies and strategies of the fascistic far right of the political spectrum. Alan Kors obviously is a man who really cares about teaching our young critical thinking. The man has both brains and heart -- and balls.
