Die globale sexuelle Revolution, vorangetrieben von UN und EU, hat sich zunächst hinter dem Rücken der Öffentlichkeit in Politik, Institutionen und Ausbildungseinrichtungen eingeschlichen. Inzwischen ist daraus längst ein gewaltiges gesellschaftliches Umerziehungsprogramm geworden, welches die Voraussetzungen einer freiheitlichen Gesellschaft zerstört und zunehmend totalitäre Züge annimmt. In diesem Buch lesen Sie, was man heute nicht mehr sagen darf über • UN und EU als Betreiber der sexuellen Revolution • die große Umerziehung zum sexualisierten Gender-Menschen • die politische Vergewaltigung der Sprache • die Seuche der Pornografie • die Homosexuellen-Bewegung • Sex-Erziehung in Schule und Kindergarten • die schiefe Ebene zum Totalitarismus im neuen Gewand "Dass Gabriele Kuby den Mut hat, die Bedrohung unserer Freiheit durch eine antihumanistische Ideologie beim Namen zu nennen, bringt ihr möglicherweise Feindseligkeit, ja sogar Hetze ein. Sie hat stattdessen für ihre Aufklärungsarbeit unser aller Dank verdient. Möglichst viele Menschen sollten dieses Buch lesen, um aufmerksam zu werden, was auf sie zukommt, wenn sie sich nicht wehren". (Aus dem Geleitwort von Prof. Robert Spaemann)

A “new liberal with old values” argues nothing is the matter with Kansas—and that the Democratic party needs to lead America out of its moral crisis (The New York Times). In this insightful book, the author of The Cheating Culture addresses the anxieties that many Americans share, pointing out that the problems most people care about are not hot-button partisan issues like abortion and gay marriage, but rather deeper subjects that neither party is addressing—the selfishness that is careening out of control, the effect of our violent and consumerist culture on children, and our lack of a greater purpose. As Republicans veer into zealotry, liberals can find common ground with the moderate majority. But to achieve electoral victories, they need a powerful new vision. In The Moral Center, David Callahan articulates that vision—and offers an escape from the dead-end culture war. With insights garnered from in-depth research and interviews, he examines some of our most polarized conflicts and presents unexpected solutions that lay out a new road map to the American center. “Brilliant, challenging, practical and hopeful.” —E. J. Dionne Jr., author of Why Americans Hate Politics “Callahan shows why progressives often seem not to have such a [moral] center, ceding values to the Right, and why they need to get one to win the political battle.” —Benjamin R. Barber, author of Consumed and Jihad vs. McWorld “Callahan wants . . . to create a new public morality that is concerned about both poverty and video game violence, both wages and rap lyrics. He wants to soften the jagged edges of the culture wars.” —Michael Tomasky, The New York Review of Books

What do women want? The same thing men were promised in the Declaration of Independence: happiness, or at least the freedom to pursue it. For women, though, pursuing happiness is a complicated endeavor, and if you head out into America and talk to women one-on-one, as Jill Filipovic has done, you'll see that happiness is indelibly shaped by the constraints of gender, the expectations of feminine sacrifice, and the myriad ways that womanhood itself differs along lines of race, class, location, and identity. In The H-Spot, Filipovic argues that the main obstacle standing in-between women and happiness is a rigged system. In this world of unfinished feminism, men have long been able to "have it all" because of free female labor, while the bar of achievement for women has only gotten higher. Never before have women at every economic level had to work so much (whether it's to be an accomplished white-collar employee or just make ends meet). Never before have the standards of feminine perfection been so high. And never before have the requirements for being a "good mother" been so extreme. If our laws and policies made women's happiness and fulfillment a goal in and of itself, Filipovic contends, many of our country's most contentious political issues--from reproductive rights to equal pay to welfare spending--would swiftly be resolved. Filipovic argues that it is more important than ever to prioritize women's happiness-and that doing so will make men's lives better, too. Here, she provides an outline for a feminist movement we all need and a blueprint for how policy, laws, and society can deliver on the promise of the pursuit of happiness for all.

Der Weiblichkeitswahn Oder Die Selbstbefreiung Der Frau

Der Titel dieses heftig umstrittenen Bestsellers ist in die Umgangssprache eingegangen. Weiblichkeitswahn – das ist die von mächtigen wirtschaftlichen Interessengruppen manipulierte Umkehrung der Frauenemanzipation. Die Frau wird durch psychologische Dauerbeeinflussung in der Werbung und in den Massenmedien zur «glücklichen Hausfrau und Mutter» umfunktioniert, wird als kaufkräftige Konsumentin umschmeichelt und auf ein Sexualsymbol mit Warencharakter reduziert. Betty Friedan führt ein erdrückendes Beweismaterial ins Feld gegen das entstellte Image des weiblichen Wesens in unserer Zivilisation. Die Autorin zeigt allerdings auch Wege, auf denen die moderne Frau trotz aller Widerstände ihren eigenen Glücksansprüchen und denen der Familie gerecht werden kann. Dieses Werk einer intelligenten und temperamentvollen Frau über die Frau sollte auch Pflichtlektüre für Männer sein.
