Combating Culture for Our Kids

Home Invasion: Protecting Your Family in a Culture That's Gone Stark Raving Mad is a brand new book by Rebecca Hagelin, vice president of The Heritage Foundation, a conservative think tank in Washington, D.C. From all indications, the book, which is Hagelin's first, appears to be an excellent and practical guide for parents to use in combating the corrupt cultural "invaders" in our children's lives, such as . . . unmonitored Internet access, television, magazines and music. My wife and I have often found Hagelin's Townhall.com columns on parenting extremely helpful and look forward to reading a more in-depth treatment.

Townhall.com is offering an excerpt from Home Invasion on its site today. And here's an excerpt of that excerpt:

Even the best of families have fallen victim to a Home Invasion—not by a pack of criminals who brazenly and forcefully assault us in order to rob us of our possessions, but by a culture that has slyly slithered into our senses in order to rob us of our souls.

The purpose of this book is to encourage you to listen to that inner voice, that deep feeling that tells you something is amiss in the culture, and to act on it. Parents around the world are equipped with an instinct to protect their young—we know in our hearts basic truths about child-rearing and what characteristics are desirable in our kids. However, due to the constant onslaught of a culture that attacks basic moral principles and entices us to compromise, give in, and cast our good judgment aside, many of us have silenced our hearts through our own refusal to listen to what we know is true.

The book, which was officially released today, has, at this posting, already climbed to No. 66 on Amazon.com's Top Sellers list.

If you had any sense, you'd realize how stupid this book is.
