I read the Turner Diaries and still don't know why so many people got upset about it. It was written, as MANY books are, from a *what if* point of view. During the actual time it was written, when laws were being changed rapidly, many people were viewing such accelerated change with alarm. I have seen books that use the same writing/plot device on best-seller lists... There have been several that novelized the world as it would be today (or in the future) if: The South had won the Civil War Germany or Japan had won WWII Certain presidents had NOT been elected and so forth... Yes, the author was racially biased, but again, look at WHEN the book was actually written AND where the author was AND the authors background.
If you delve deep into the book and get past the *civil rights* issues, the author makes some very good arguements for the Second Ammendment and the right and duty of the American people to revolt when the Constitution becomes a document of tyranny,and not the espousal(adoption and/or declaration) of the rights and freedoms of the American people as it was meant to be!
I'm probably preachin to the chior here, but has anyone read the book "Unintended Consequences" Author's name is Ross.
Simply an outstanding book dealing with second ammendment issues.
Yes, twice. Should be required reading any and everyone supporting the 2nd amendment.
