Since its national debut last week, David Kupelian’s latest book, “The Snapping of the American Mind,” has soared up the Amazon bestseller charts and elicited rave reviews, which the author hopes is a sign Americans are hungry for a rare commodity in today’s culture: truth.
In the book, says Kupelian, “I endeavor – kind of like Neo in the popular sci-fi film ‘The Matrix’ – to ‘unplug’ the virtual reality program that has captured the minds of so many of us. It’s not much of an exaggeration to say that in today’s America, tens of millions of people are living in a delusional dream state.”
He explains: “Even our everyday terminology is fantastical and dreamlike, seemingly designed to obscure our reality. For example, in politics and culture we speak casually of ‘the left’ and ‘the right,’ as though these were two morally equivalent camps or worldviews. In reality, as I document in the book, the socialist/Marxist ideology that has captivated today’s Democrat Party is at war with reason, human nature, common sense, history and truth – indeed, at war with God and His laws.”
In fact, Kupelian claims the far left cannot operate without violating the Ten Commandments. “Leftist radicals,” he says, “continually elevate and excuse murder (abortion), adultery (‘sexual liberation’), stealing (‘wealth redistribution’), lying (deceiving Americans as to their real intentions) and covetousness (Churchill called socialism ‘the gospel of envy’) – thereby wiping out Commandments 6, 7, 8, 9 and 10, all in the guise of championing freedom, justice and equality.”
The problem for the rest of us, he adds, is that the political and cultural left that dominate today’s America is “driving millions of unsuspecting Americans completely over the edge – into depression, family breakdown, debauchery, mental illness, violence, addiction and worse.” “The Snapping of the American Mind” exhaustively documents this stunning correlation.
“Fortunately”, he adds, “the better we understand the madness that has captured us – both as a nation and as individuals – the more clear becomes our escape route back to the God-blessed land we once knew, and would know again if we could find the way back.” The book is hopefully subtitled: “Healing a Nation Broken by a Lawless Government and a Godless Culture.”
Kupelian, vice president and managing editor of WND and editor of Whistleblower magazine, is the author of two other influential books, “The Marketing of Evil,” and its sequel, “How Evil Works.”
On Tuesday, radio talker and Fox News personality Laura Ingraham, while interviewing Kupelian, told her vast radio audience, “David’s a compelling writer, and the way he presents the narrative of what’s happened to our political psyche, our spiritual psyche, all of it, is really compelling. It’s a page-turner. I really urge you all to get this book.”
She added, “Some people may think, ‘Oh I already know all this stuff, we’re going to hell in a handbasket, why do I need to read it?’ Because you need to know the way out! And we need to help each other.”
Other interviews in the last few days – including George Noory on “Coast to Coast AM,” Steve Deace, Barry Farber, Bill Martinez, Dr. Michael Brown, Carl Gallups, Rev. Jesse Lee Peterson and Fox News radio host Kate Dalley – have echoed Ingraham’s assessment.
Joseph Farah, who as CEO of WND Books is the publisher of Kupelian’s latest work, says “‘The Snapping of the American Mind’ is so unique and deeply affecting that I believe it could actually influence the presidential race and even the future of our country.”
