The smoothness and impartiality of Sandra Burr's narration are remarkable achievements, considering the author's searing arguments and her sensational examples of liberalism's ideological excesses. As in all polemics, the audio is full of dramatic and overgeneralized conclusions that rest on worldviews and assumptions not explained. Over the course of the nine hours, however, one slowly does gather up the assumptions that permeate the thinking of this and other conservative writers--a reliance on Old Testament justice, oversimplified accountability, and nostalgia for a less complicated moral climate. This is one of the more effective attempts to disguise the righteous indignation that is ever present on both sides of the Left-Right debate.
