Dr. Bolton's essential "Surrender is not an option" is a must read.

Leo Strauss - ancient philosopher king and professor in Chicago. Dissident who fled Naziland before WWII, Strauss is an iconic figure - the founding father of 'Which one of these is not like the other?' politically wise - Strauss pointed out that relativism (and realism too) shared a dangerously retarded "easy going belief that all points of view are equal (hence none really worth passionate argument, deep analysis or stalwart defense) and then into the strident belief that anyone who argues for the superiority of a distictive moral insight, way of life, or human type is somehow elitist or antidemocratic and hence immoral."
Check out Allan Bloom’s The Closing of the American Mind to get a pop version, Then try Strauss’s own Natural Right and History, followed by Persecution and the Art of Writing. Strauss also edited The History of Political Philosophy, which has essays on all the major political philosophers and is an excellent and reliable intro.

Straussian Purists include Pentagon Vulcans, Neocons and America Firsters. Sir Winnie is a big hero to the purists, they often celebrate his BDay with brandy and blunts.
