Born the son of a farmer, 19-year old Ty goes off to college, fulfilling his father’s dream of a better life. The only mistake was sending Ty to a liberal university. Sure enough, in his second year, Ty begins to reject his father’s values—the very values of hard work and individual responsibility that provided him his education. The biggest fear of conservative parents is not experiencing the “empty nest” syndrome when their children leave for college. It is a brainwashing of their child by the pervasively liberal academic world. Author Michael Adams recounts a true story of liberal indoctrination and intellectual redemption in his new book Letters to a Young Progressive: How to Avoid Wasting Your Life Protesting Things You Don’t Understand.Presented as a series of letters between Adams and his former student, Ty, Letters to a Young Progressive demonstrates how the world of progressive education encourages the next generation in the pursuit of unhappiness. Confused and angry, today’s college students and grads have come down with a bad case of moral relativism, comparing Rush Limbaugh to Charles Manson, and George W. Bush to Hitler, and confusing fairness with justice.Witty and enlightening, Letters to a Young Progressive is the perfect book to help parents prevent—or undo--the ubiquitous, liberal brainwashing of their children before it is too late.
