According to Jonah Goldberg, if the greatest trick the Devil ever pulled was convincing the world he didn't exist, the greatest trick liberals ever pulled was convincing them- selves that they're not ideological.
Today, "objective" journalists, academics and "moderate" politicians peddle some of the most radical arguments by hiding them in homespun aphorisms, such as "One man's terrorist is another man's freedom fighter;" "Better ten guilty men go free than one innocent man suffer;" and "We need complete separation of church and state."
With humor and passion, Goldberg shows that the grand Progressive tradition of denying an ideological agenda while pursuing it vigorously under the false-flag of reasonableness is alive and well. And he reveals how this dangerous game may lead us further down the path of self-destruction.
