Much like Chairman Mao's famous compilation of hilarious witticisms published during Communist China's zany Cultural Revolution way back when, this little red book is a comic collection of pointless nonsense and senseless drivel dedicated to the culturally revolting Enlightened Left of our present day.
This remarkable anthology of pun-ridden put-downs offers unenlightened readers like yourself a refreshing alternative to the more conventional compilations of lowbrow humor otherwise at your disposal and is sure to repeatedly tickle your fancy with jovial jibes and sarcastic swipes taken at the expense of those who would rule over us in their relentless pursuit of progressive, reformist and enlightened world domination for our own good.
So just who are these Enlightened Left, you ask? I thought you never would. The Enlightened Left are those who refuse to leave the rest of us alone. They are the nannies, the anti-self-reliant, the pro-collectivist, zero-sum redistributors and interventionists so overly active in our daily lives. Incapable of accepting the idea of government as a system of negation, checks and balances within which an individual is allowed to develop and think freely on his or her own (a don't do this, don't do that model, if you will), the Enlightened Left insist instead upon actively intervening in the lives of their subjects in any and every way they deem fit (a do this, do that model). They are paternal. They are autocratic. They are from the government and here to help.
Although not particularly well known for their sense of humor (telling others how to live their lives and what to think is no laughing matter), the Enlightened Left can nevertheless be very funny indeed. This little book is a modest attempt to prove that. I hope you will enjoy reading it. I also hope you will remember to buy additional copies for your friends and family. I am told it is also an ideal gift idea for all of those you care little or next to nothing about, not to mention the many perfect or near-perfect strangers you will inevitably run into in the years to come.
In closing, please try to keep two things in mind while reading this insightful oeuvre: First of all, the Enlightened Left mean well. Secondly, the road to hell is paved with good intentions.
