Product description

Imagine if one day, a la 'The Truman Show', you woke up to find that everything you believed was the result of a careful manipulation of your life by someone else? What if much of what you believed was a lie? Well, for you, that day has arrived. In an age dominated by 'Spin', you're about to discover that the best spin campaigns of all are the ones you never even knew about. In the most politically incorrect book ever published in this country, journalist Ian Wishart rounds up a herd of sacred cows, skewering the social engineers and exposing the elites who want your taxes and your children while they laugh all the way to the bank like perverse Pied Pipers... Eve's Bite: Read it before they pass a law against it... WHAT THE CRITICS SAID: "Wishart is not afraid in the choice of his subjects: Karl Marx, Nazi propaganda techniques, Charles Darwin & intelligent design, Richard Dawkins, the gay rights movement, the "safe sex" campaign, abortion & trade in body parts, the anti-smacking campaign, liberal education, the mainstream media eugenics and islam and the threat to the west. He managed to bring them all together and identifies the relationships between them in a more than just compelling way. Having enjoyed a rather liberal approach to life and society this book was most certainly an eye-opener that made me rethink certain positions. "The direct way in which propositions are presented helps in creating effect. Not necessarily to convince you. But to open your eyes to other perspectives so carefully hidden. The book reminds me most of one of Michael Pokocky's remarks after closing SophisticaWorld: "think for yourself." As far as I can see it is what this book is all about: thinking for yourself and trying to make you think for yourself again. For the sake of yourselves and your children." - John Dierckx, The Renaissance Man "Wishart has taken his time compiling a frighteningly well-researched book. "His study calls to account some of the less-than-savoury elements of not just New Zealand but the entire Western world's increasingly liberal morals and politics. He covers abortion, teenage sexual education, the impact of radical Islam at our doorstep, homosexuality, genetic testing and more. "One of his concerns is the Government's use of state education to nurture and encourage tolerance of some of the abovementioned topics. He also muses whether today's sexual freedom is actually as liberating as one might think. Perhaps muse is not the right word; before you get ready to write him off as one man with bigoted opinions, take the time to digest the facts he presents. "His research is deep and thorough. How many times has anyone caught themselves before making a comment in public that may be construed as racist, sexist, conservative or homophobic? There is an apparent undercurrent of fear in this country but Wishart dares to speak out and speak loudly. "As a fairly liberal thinker myself (apparently this is to be expected as I am a Gen-Xer who has gone through the aforementioned education system), I was shocked to find myself not only agreeing with a lot of what Wishart says, but felt a new sense of awakening - the fire in the belly sort of stuff - protesting, opining and the rest. I have been compelled to mention this book at every social occasion I have been to recently because Eve's Bite is so deliciously full of juicy conversation starters." - Times-Age, NZ
