Facing the Beast: Courage, Faith and Resistance in a New Dark Age (Dr. Naomi Wolf)

Facing the Beast is about the last three years, and about my personal journey — a journey in which many people, I am humbled to learn, seem interested — from having been a fixture in the DC/NY/CA left-wing legacy-media universe, to being cast out into non-personhood because of an unacceptable commitment of mine to telling the truth, only to learn to reassemble my life and thoughts while finding myself in “the rest of America”. In that formerly forbidden universe, I also found personal freedom, a culture in which questioning of lies and cant was not only accepted but welcome, a new set of life-and-death conversations to take the place of cliches, conformity and falsehoods, and new friends; altogether, I found an intellectual and emotional new home, the experience of which forced me to question most of my previous assumptions and certainties. The book is also about the genuine revolution in which we find ourselves, and the heroes and heroines fighting it. And it is about what it was like to open the door that revealed bodies stacking up in the thousands and hundreds of thousands — babies dead and dying — amounting to the greatest crime against humanity ever.”
