I am currently about half way through The Broken Compass by Peter Hitchens. Hitchens is a bloke who, even a year ago, I wouldn't have given him the time of day but nowadays I pay far more attention.
His basic argument, which underlines all his writing, is that since World War Two British institutions have been slowly taken over by Marxist thinking which is designed in the long term to undermine Britain in order to move towards a global socialist state. In his firing line are politicians, the education system, immigration, religion, the undermining of marriage and the family and the media, especially the BBC, who he sees, with good reason, as being complicit in it. He is scathing about the "drinks and lunch" culture where deals are made between politicians and journalists in Westminster, away from the public's gaze. He makes clear that this is not a conspiracy in the sense that we usually understand it.
He asserts that the collapse of the Soviet Union was not the end of socialism but in fact provided Marxists with an excellent opportunity to pretend that they have abandoned their extremist views and enter mainstream politics and he identifies several leading New Labour politicians as having been involved with extremist groups in the past who now claim to have moderated their opinions. So does this make Francis Fukuyama complicit in this deception, having declared in 1992 that the end of the Soviet Union was "the end of history"?
Hitchens himself used to be an extremist Marxist so this would help give him insight into their tactics. For example, he recounts how in the post-war period very keen communist supporters were told not to actually join the party because it would be too obvious what they were up to. Personally, that tells me everything I need to know.
When I finish it I may write a more detailed review.
