"The Death of Right and Wrong" by Tammy Bruce

Anyone read it? What did you think?
I think she’s overly pro-Bush, and too defensive of his administrations actions since 9/11.
But I tend to agree with her that the radical left is full of people with a victim mentality.

I’ll just wildly assume this is also very defensive of the idea of “common sense”.
In which case it sucks :)

No, it’s about moral absolutes vs. moral relativism. And how the latter is a slippery slope that eventually leads to no moral standards at all.

Oh yeah? Why doesn’t she talk about the slippery slope turning a democracy into a tyranny?

Well, then it sucks on that basis.
Objectively speaking.

Well, okay, who knows, maybe it’s a very well-argued point and all.

I think she’s overly pro-Bush

Tammy Bruce pro-Bush? I seem to recall she was a talk show host on KFI out here in LA several years ago. IIRC, her schtick was moderately radical feminism. How the times have changed.


She was apparently also the president of NOW in Los Angeles.

So she’s a proponent of moral absolutism, am I understanding it correctly that this means she believes in objective morality? Just curious, I’d like to criticise her position but without reading the book I would need to know what position she is arguing from, and how she defends it.

I haven’t read this but I may at some point. I definitely like to hear from ex-liberals who have realized that the left is off it’s rocker.


And off its rocker too.

I have this rule: if Sean Hannity praises your book…

If you believe children should be seduced into warped sexual behavior by the Gay Elite, if you think confessed murderers should be set free by defense attorneys who know how to wield the race card, if you feel promiscuous gay men should be empowered to spread AIDS and other sexually transmitted diseases, don’t read this book.


I thought it was juries that freed “confessed murderers,” not defense attorneys. Whatever happened to personal responsibility?

Personal responcibility doesn’t pay very well.
