Item description for LIBERALISM AND THE AGE OF THE WOMAN by JERRY SAWYER...
The purpose of this book, like the founding of National Review Magazine in 1955, is to stand athwart the course of history and yell STOP! It is not a red-meat, man-versus-woman book. Instead, it shows how liberalism and radical feminism based in it now control our very culture. Sexual relations are but the tip of the ice-berg. The 1960's did usher in the greatest revolution the world has ever seen, the Sexual Revolution. What had for centuries been condemned as a "shack-up", or sin, was now called a "lifestyle choice." Men contributed to the role-breakdown by beginning to wear earrings and their hair long; and women cooperated by taking off the covering in churches and putting on pants. In the professions, dirty, grimy jobs such as road-work and construction, formerly reserved for men, were now taken by women. Not only jobs but clothing and appearance were "same-sex."
Sexual-relations, however, are but a visible part of the revolution. Underlying this sexual-revolution is the collapse of our major institutions. This book has space to address only four: 1) marriage, 2) education, 3) the media, and 4) politics. As just one example of this collapse in the institution of marriage, over fifty per-cent of marriages now end in divorce. In education men are staying away from academia in droves; and it is ninety-nine per-cent guaranteed that if you mortgage your home and send your son or daughter to about any college or university now, (with an exception, which I identify), you will receive back not an educated Person but a fully-programmed liberal Product. Finally, many churches are feminized, causing men to stay away, and use of various gimmicks to try to lure them back.
This Revolution did not just "happen." It had a cause, as philosophy underlies politics. It is often remarked that the institutions of Hollywood, academia, and the media are militantly liberal. But why are they liberal? It turns out that the surface politics, as important as they are, but reflect a profound philosophy under the surface that has been building and building. This book identifies and traces that cause, -which at last burst out into the open in the 1960's. I am using apocalyptic language to describe this philosophy and its resulting politics. The reader will see the reason for such language by the time he finishes the book.
Long-term philosophy waits out short-term politics. For example, voters gave us the liberal Clinton Administration, which in turn expanded a liberal Supreme Court. It was that Court which radically expanded eminent domain. Outraged voters, mugged by reality, protected themselves against that ruling in the November 2006 elections with state constitutional amendments; at the same time, they contradictorily gave us back more liberals in the Senate. Eminent Domain will be back in some guise or other, as patient philosophy waits out politics.
The collapse of the institution of politics involves both domestic policy and the foreign- policy involved in our membership in the U.N. What is the connection between the Sexual Revolution and illegal immigration in this Age of the Woman? And what about this Age of the Woman makes us almost defense-less against the violence and loveless-ness which characterize Islam? Ideas have had unexpected consequences.
Identifying and fleshing out both the cause of the Sexual Revolution and the collapse of our institutions, or foundations, has involved some hard thinking. What is a Liberal? What is Truth - and its relation to truth? What is love? Why is the love-song now ubiquitous. Such questions had to be answered along the way. The hard thinking required in writing this book has revolutionized my thinking as author. It may revolutionize yours' as reader.

A must Read! Jul 2, 2007
America is imploding! Western civilization is dying! We are living in the end times! There are many voices claiming to have the answers. Some are close but only one has discerend the source of the true problem. Author Jerry Sawyer is the one! In his book "Liberalism and the Age of Woman" Mr. Sawyer, with the precision of a surgeon, dissects the problem as no one else has or could.
"Liberalism and the Age of Woman" should be required reading or every political leader, church leader and college student. If you care about the ideals that made America great, you too should read it!
GREAT book! Jun 24, 2007
It took a while for me to read this book because I found myself stopping and thinking about what I was reading quite often. It challenged me and made me look at my society in a different light. After reading it I returned to university after a long hiatus. Time and again during my classes I am reminded of points the author makes in this book.
Some of the reading was difficult for me because I had not previously studied the history of philosophy or read many of the writings mentioned, but the book was definitely worth the effort. As I read this book I felt that I was gaining enough new knowledge to qualify for a few university credits.
Two thumbs up, Mr Sawyer! You have the courage to say the things that need to be said, in an age when few people want to listen.
Are you a PERSON, or a PRODUCT?! Jan 16, 2007
Are you an individual, or are you enslaved by the burden of the latest fad (such as "political correctness" or "militant feminism")? Do you accept ideas like your computer routinely accepts "cookies"? The answer may surprise you! Sawyer's analysis cuts CLEAN to the bone, carefully dissecting the subtle cancer of undisciplined and sloppy thinking...the sort of thinking that has enslaved individuals and whole societies...and threatens to do the same to (the) US! After all, if man is a mere animal, what is wrong with slavery, terrorism, or abortion as management-systems?
Did Human Rights REALLY not exist prior to Government? Government would have you THINK so, but this must-read book tells you from whence and why rights do exist, AND how they are now threatened like never before! Ideas DO have certain consequences, and Sawyer lays bare the bankrupt liberal thinking for all to see in the clear, clean, sunlight.
A former Atheist, Sawyer makes no apology for his clearly Christian world view, that man is very special, and pleads for a post-Christian culture to return to the Truth that created the greatest culture on earth. If you want to change the world (or just yourself!) read this book. It is a pearl.
OUTSTANDING INDICTMENT OF LIBERALISM Nov 4, 2006
Ann Coulter move over! Sawyer has herein demolished the myths of Liberalism and Feminism in one volume. Rush, O'Reilly and Hannity listeners will enjoy this book as much as I did.
