After writing books on personal wealth Kruger discovered that there are two sets of answers to the problem of poverty. Douglas became fascinated by the idea of how families and individuals can escape inter-generational cycles of poverty. He found that, on the one hand, folks are served a set of politically correct ideas about what might work; then, on the other side of the spectrum, there are the things that are economically sound that actually work but are harder to hear.
He became quite attuned to these differences between what he calls “political correctness versus the truth.” This is the heart and soul of his new book.
Kruger commented: ‘Political correctness is Marxism by stealth. Yet most people think it’s about kindness, and make no mistake, politicians are happy to sell it that way. Starting now, we’re going to pull back the curtain and reveal the truth. It’s time for the world’s most important philosophical street-fight. You can have political correctness, or you can have the truth, but you can’t have both.”
In the interview, Douglas discussed how specific politically correct ideas may seem like an obvious initiative, but then digging deeper another agenda comes to light, and also his opinion that the most murderous concept humanity has ever experienced is…equality!
Kruger said: “If you had to perform a SWOT-analysis for our species, you would discover that the deadliest idea we have ever had is not religion, but ‘egalitarianism.’ That strikes most people as surprising. Yet the politically correct idea of ‘group’ over ‘individual’ is responsible for more deaths, via government genocide and mass starvation, than any other idea in human history. That’s why I choose to have this fight. That’s why I continually say: You can have truth, or you can have political correctness, but you can’t have both.”
