It is 2018, and we would be pretty clueless to assume that American education is not completely infiltrated by radical teachers and professors. Universities, public high schools, middle schools and pre-schools — these institutions shamelessly seek to indoctrinate your impressionable sons and daughters with their biased agendas.

Rather than meekly throwing your offspring into the arms of the radical Left, equip them with the facts, knowledge and confidence necessary to stand up to their professors and peers. Below are five books published by Regnery (a conservative publishing company) authors who skip the nonsense, embrace the politically incorrect and realistically diagnose the dangers America faces today.

Letters to a Young Progressive: How to Avoid Wasting Your Life Protesting Things You Don’t Understand

 Mike S. Adams (Regnery, 2013)

If anyone understands the dangers of social activism on college campuses, Mike Adams does. Using the framework of a series of letters between himself and a former student, Adams demonstrates why and how so many college students emerge indoctrinated, unhappy, unimaginative, and helpless to provide for themselves.

“Letters to a Young Progressive” examines faith and political discourse, free thought and political dogmatism, diversity, harassment, and much more. It’s “The Screwtape Letters” of the Right-leaning world – a must read for your bright young conservative.

The Problem with Socialism

Thomas DiLorenzo (Regnery, 2016)

There is a reason why uninformed women like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has gained such wild popularity with millennials; as Allie Stuckey says, are told to “be who you are” – and then everything else will be handed to you.

Socialism’s call has proved enticing to many young people, but DiLorenzo’s “The Problem with Socialism” will open your child’s eyes to socialism’s many and disastrous dangers. As DiLorenzo shows, socialism is the answer only if you’re looking for increasing unemployment and poverty, stifling bureaucracy, catastrophic environmental pollution, rotten schools, and much more (plus, the book is pocket sized with a funky little cover).

Not a Daycare: The Devastating Consequences of Abandoning Truth

Dr. Everett Piper (Regnery, 2017)

In “Not a Daycare”, Dr. Everett Piper exposes today’s educational situation: safe spaces, trigger warnings and all. Piper draws on his own experience as a professor to urge young people to abandon victimhood and embrace independence, citing specific examples from liberal schools across the country.

Glenn Beck says it best: “You must read this book. Everett Piper is a man of courage and conviction. He stands nearly alone as an academic leader confronting the ideological fascism of the snowflake rebellion. His call for intellectual freedom must be heard.”

Erasing America: Losing Our Future by Destroying Our Past

James S. Robbins (Regnery, 2018)

USA Today columnist James Robbins sets out to expose Leftist vigilante extremism for exactly what it is – malicious attempts to control the American mind by destroying America’s history.

Drawing on hundreds of examples from towns and cities across America, Robbins shows how the Left manipulates NFL football, schools and universities, victims of racism, Christmas, and much more. Intellectually intriguing yet still maneuverable for young people, “Erasing America” is the perfect book to equip collegiates with facts to combat progressive ideologies.

The Politically Incorrect Guide to American History

Thomas E. Woods (Regnery, 2004)

“Will Rogers once said that the problem in America isn’t so much what people don’t know,” author Thomas E Woods wrote. “The problem is what people think they know that just ain’t so.”

American history is composed of a series of hard facts, but these facts have been obliterated and skewed by progressives. Thomas Woods’ “PIG to American History” clears up common historical myths, propagated lies, and common misconceptions– and is packed with fun facts to boot! Every true conservative needs a couple “PIGs” on their bookshelf to whip out when the need arises, and Woods is a great place to start.
