I'm currently working on "The Case for Democracy" by Natan Sharansky.
While it's not really directly tied to conservatism, I highly suggest Eric Hoffer's "The True Believer." It's a collection of thoughts on what drives fanatical mass movements, the types of individuals who become members of mass movements, and the personalities that start mass movements. I find it invaluable in understanding the mindset of the fundamentalist Muslims that seem so intent on destroying Western civilization. And a number of passages are also very apt descriptions of the liberal moonbats that we find so infuriating. It's important to know one's enemy.
Another excellent title is "A Conflict of Visions" by Thomas Sowell. It's an intriguing look into why the mindset so many liberals have that, despite their own moral relativism, anyone who disagrees with them is genuinely evil.
What do you think about "The Case For Democracy" so far? I've just begun reading it myself.
Thanks for the reference
I am very impressed with Sowell's work. His Vision of the Anointed gave me a remarkable whole framework to view current events. I highly recommend it.
Hoffer's "The True Believer" should be required reading.
