520    "There's a war against truth... and if we don't win it, 
       intellectual freedom will be a casualty. The West's 
       commitment to freedom, reason, and true liberalism has 
       never been more seriously threatened than it is today by 
       the stifling forces of political correctness. Dr. Gad Saad,
       the host of the enormously popular YouTube show THE SAAD 
       TRUTH, exposes the bad ideas--what he calls "idea 
       pathogens"--that are killing common sense and rational 
       debate. Incubated in our universities and spread through 
       the tyranny of political correctness, these ideas are 
       endangering our most basic freedoms--including freedom of 
       thought and speech. The danger is grave, but as Dr. Saad 
       shows, politically correct dogma is riddled with logical 
       fallacies. We have powerful weapons to fight back with--if
       we have the courage to use them."--Jacket flap.
