Letters to a Young Progressive: How to Avoid Wasting Your Life Protesting Things You Don’t Understand

Do you suppose the biggest fear among conservative parents is experiencing the dreaded “empty nest” syndrome when their children fly the coop for college?

If you do, think again.

According to author and college professor Mike S. Adams, their biggest fear is that their children will be brainwashed by the pervasively liberal academic world.

In his new book Letters to a Young Progressive: How to Avoid Wasting Your Life Protesting Things You Don’t Understand, Adams recounts a true story of liberal indoctrination and intellectual redemption presented as a series of letters between himself and a former student, “Zach,” who fulfills a dream by heading off to college.

Except that it’s devolved into a nightmare.


Because Zach is attending a liberal university, and sure enough he begins to reject his faith and the conservative values he brought with him to campus—the very values of hard work and individual responsibility that provided Zach’s education in the first place.

As the Letters unfold, they begin uncovering in a larger sense how the world of progressive education encourages the next generation in the pursuit of unhappiness! Confused and angry, college students and grads have come down with a bad case of moral relativism, Adams declares.

Adams appeared on Wilkow! to discuss why America’s young people are falling into this path and how it can be stopped. Check out the clip right here:

Indeed everything they knew before (i.e., what their parents taught them) is stupid and evil. Such as, America isn’t the greatest nation on earth; in fact, it’s a racist, sexist, homophobic country. Or how they so freely compare Rush Limbaugh to the likes of Charles Manson and George W. Bush to Hitler. And on and on.

In the end Letters to a Young Progressive reveals how the “education” of college kids across the country is producing a generation of unhappy, unimaginative, and unproductive adults…but it also provides intellectual footholds that any student can use to extricate himself or herself from the grip of progressive values.

With high school graduations just weeks away, this witty and enlightening book is the perfect tool to help parents prevent—or undo—liberal brainwashing of their children. In fact, it can help students survive (and even thrive) on campus as conservatives.
