The Fight of Our Lives

The Fight of Our Lives is a call to stop being “politically correct” and instead call things by what they need to be called so that America does not destroy the values that it was built upon and has fought for. William J. Bennett and Seth Leibsohn discuss what happened after September 11 and how since then America has become weakened by our fear of speaking the truth and acting on that truth. Through the course of the book the authors boldly call out radical Islam for the things that have happened that our government is afraid to label. However, they do not label any situation without reasonable and reliable resources.

A major focal point was that President Obama has tried to have open communications to stop terrorism and the like from happening but instead more terrorist attacks have happened since he has tried his foreign policy. America is seen as weak by those countries who would destroy us and turning a blind eye to the real issues has only made things worse.

While I though Bennett and Leibsohn did a good job and laying out what had happened in the past and how America was going to disintegrate what ideals it has as a country, I did not feel that they gave us anything that we could do to change the problem. Yes, we can vocalize what we see as truth but when our government is headed in a direction that goes against standing up for the truth, it seems that voting is the only thing to do—and even then nothing is guaranteed.
