WELCOME TO DUMBFUCKISTAN by Ian Gurvitz
"I swear I went through the whole gamut of human emotions while reading this book. I wanted to stand up and cheer in solidarity one minute and curl into the fetal position and cry in shame the next. Most people won't appreciate Gurvitz's approach t..." Read more of this review »

“(Ayn Rand was the godmother of laissez faire capitalism, the Virgin Mary of Libertarianism. She died in 1982. She spent her life attempting to turn selfishness into a religion so that people could claim their greed was grounded in the nature of man. Her heinous ideas and crappy books have given politicians philosophical cover to promote their “greed is good” agenda for decades.”
Ian Gurvitz, WELCOME TO DUMBFUCKISTAN: The Dumbed-Down, Disinformed, Dysfunctional, Disunited States of America

“The main thing wrong with religion is that people have gotten it wrong. The goal is to understand religion as it should be understood, as traditions, myths, symbols, and practices intended to lead one to a deeper, more profound experience of human life. The desire for this knowledge is hard wired in us. That won’t disappear. Unless of course we wipe each other out in the next holy war, in which case we’ve successfully screwed ourselves.”

“Crap food. Toxic music. Even pop psychology and religion. We take the human impulse toward self-knowledge, and reconstitute it as EST, The Forum, and Scientology. We pervert the 5000-year-old spiritual discipline of Yoga into a weight loss regimen and an excuse to buy cute, clingy stretch pants. And then there’s our affectation for New Age religion, which is to actual religion as light jazz is to Coltrane: Astrology, palm reading, Phrenology, past life regression, astral projection, tarot, numerology, crystals, psychics, and mediums who talk to the dead.”
