“The loss of religious belief has meant the West has replaced reason and truth with ideology and prejudice, which it enforces in the manner of a secular inquisition. The result has been a kind of mass derangement, as truth and lies, right and wrong, victim and aggressor are all turned upside down. In medieval-style witch- hunts, scientists who are skeptical of global warming are hounded from their posts; Israel is ferociously demonized; and the United States is vilified over the war on terror-all on the basis of falsehoods and propaganda that are believed as truth.”

“One is disturbed each day by verifiably untrue statements touted as incontrovertible facts about hot-button issues. With cold, perceptive, exhaustive and persistent passion, Melanie Phillips dissects the phenomenon among disparate movements, to reach disturbing but compelling conclusions about the erosion of modern liberal society by ideologies whose surprising interconnections are meticulously identified. One can only hope that her book will penetrate the information cocoon into which many of our intelligentsia have sealed themselves.”
-Richard S. Lindzen, Alfred P. Sloan Professor of Meteorology, MIT

“A brilliant tour de force, beautifully written and powerfully argued.”
-Norman Podhoretz, author of Why Are Jews Liberals?

“A trenchant sequel to George Orwell’s Politics and the English Language. Melanie Phillips courageously flushes out today’s equivalents of Orwell’s targets-those who with indignant self- righteousness suppress free debate and liberty itself.”
-R. James Woolsey, former Director of Central Intelligence(1993-1995)

Melanie Phillips

Melanie Phillips (born 4 June 1951) is an Orwell Prize winning British journalist and author. Her articles appear mainly in the Daily Mail newspaper and cover political and social issues from a conservative perspective; she has also written for The Guardian, and is a regular panelist on the BBC Radio 4 programme The Moral Maze and BBC One’s Question Time. She has authored four books, including most recently World Turned Upside Down in 2010. In 2003, The Guardian wrote of her that her “trademarks of social concern, pessimism about modern Britain and seemingly absolute certainty have made her – against stiff competition – arguably the most high-profile and prolific British pundit on moral and political matters.”[1]
