United in Hate analyzes the Left's contemporary romance with militant Islam as a continuation of the Left's love affair with communist totalitarianism in the twentieth century. Just as the Left was drawn to the communist killing machines of Lenin, Stalin, Mao, Pol Pot and Castro, so too it is now attracted to radical Islam.Both the radical Left and radical Islam possess a ...more

I have often wondered with both genuine puzzlement and rage, why the radical Left seems to have vigorously supported every murderous tyranny on the face of the earth, providing it is anti-Western.
It has always been galling and sickening how left wing radicals have had no humanity towards anyone who was a victim of the totalitarian regimes or bloodthirsty terrorist movements that they have supported over the last century.
The shameful death cult odyssey that has lead left wing radicals of the

The most ambitious chapter in this book is #2 where Glazov attempts to explain why the Leftist is the way he is. And his argument rests on these pillars: the believer is alienated from his society, he fantasizes about creating a perfect society in its place, he lacks meaning in life that frustrates him from establishing real and lasting interpersonal relationships, and he rejects the basic reality of the human condition that human beings are flawed and selfish.

He writes "The believer...is

I didn't need a book to tell me that the American Left is essentially a death cult--their embrace of abortion and euthanasia, and apparent eagerness to destroy Judeo-Christian capitalist culture, already convinced me of that long ago. But this well-researched and persuasively written volume by PhD historian Jamie Glazov looks more deeply into the psychology of _why_ leftists so hate the culture and nations that give them freedom and opportunity, and instead flock to support the bloodiest regimes ...more

Fascinating theories on why those on the far left think and behave the way they do. The ideas ring true and make sense, even when applied to more moderate progressives. A worthy read for those of all political stripes.

Why hasn't more folks read this book? It's sure to open the eyes of those liberal's in Washington.

This is one book I recommend for all of humanity to read. Highly informative and to the point. American will only survive if it learns the lessons of this book.

Unable to find meaning in life, many of the ‘Left’ find meaning in death. They strive to fill the void in their life with causes. Since our society no longer needs to struggle for food each day, they are a ‘lost’ group, finding a new purpose to live for. We are no longer taught to live our life for God, to mimic Jesus in out actions, to practice self-denial or to put the needs of other first. As our society slowly eases restrictions on deviant behaviors more will need to find fulfillment by ...more

Embracing the viper

One of Aesop's fables concerns a farmer who found a half frozen viper. Taking pity on the venomous serpent he placed it inside his jacket to warm it. Upon reviving, the viper bit the farmer, mortally wounding him. This is exactly the position that modern liberals put themselves in in embracing ideologies whose adherents would just as soon kill them if they ever had the liberals in their power. This has happened not once, but twice, first with militant Communism, and now again

Finally a physiological account for the progressive phenomenon (rather than just ideological analysis). Very deep and very, maybe too detailed. A must book for understanding where the Western elites are pushing, hopefully, unsuccessfully.
Look for more detailed reviews of this book. It deserves it.

United in Hate is an interesting concept of a literary work. While I agree with most of the messages and point that Glazov presents, there are many hypotheticals portrayed in the book that are not supported by fact but are portrayed to be true. Again, an interesting read, but one must take it with a grain of salt.

It's been a few years since I read this, after a friend insisted. I remember I found it pretty off: Where I think other critics of the political Left, like Nick Cohen or Christopher Hitchens, know their subject, I get the impression that Glazov doesn't really know the Left very well. He makes no difference between, say, the large European social democratic parties and feverish Maoists, which makes the whole book a bit difficult to take seriously. Still, there is no denying that you'll find a lot ...more

It's a possible explanation for the left's infatuation with violent regimes, from communist Russia to the islam. If it wasn't so sad, it would be hilarious, seeing how the people that would repress them the most (remember, leftist regimes love killing intellectuals) get the most praise from the left.
