The Politics of Envy

When toxic envy grows unchecked, it will inevitably destroy an individual, a family, a society —even a civilization. In our day, envy has reached its tipping point, fueling acts of anger, violence, and revenge in America’s cities and corporate boardrooms.

In this timely and brilliantly written book, Anne Hendershott argues that the political class, social media, and advertisers have created a culture of covetousness by relentlessly provoking us to envy others and to be envied. The result is not surprising: a deeply indignant and rapacious generation that believes no one is more deserving of advantages and rewards than they.

Hendershott explains how envy leads to resentment, which eventually erupts into violence and rage, malicious mobs, cancel culture, and the elevation of dysfunctional political systems such as socialism and Marxism.

The Politics of Envy is the first book to provide a sociocultural probe into the root cause of the deadly sin of envy, and it charts a proven path out of this disordered and destructive thinking.  From this pivotal, vitally important book you’ll also learn:

  • Why envy cannot be defeated by politics and requires a heroic attitude to defeat

  • How social media’s illusion of intimacy has fueled the mobs

  • The difference between bullying and the envy-driven cancel culture

  • The Marxist roots of Liberation Theology

  • Why students have always been an easy target for the cult of socialism 

  • Why the truly envious believe that no one is more deserving of advantages and rewards than they

  • How today’s culture of envy traces its roots to the 1950s

Crisis In Culture: How Secularism is Becoming a Religion

In this timely and penetrating book, Fr. George Rutler shows how the West’s decades-long cultural assault against Christianity is finally reaching its inevitable conclusion: the self-destruction of our culture and society.

Fr. Rutler sees the past thirty years as a moral “cold war” between Christians and those for whom personal behavior is of lesser concern than one’s “good intentions.” He explains how relativism and its consequent dictatorship of feeling spun civilization on its head by denying the relevance — and the very existence — of God. Indeed, it seeped into the remotest corners of society and, over time, led our entire culture into a full-on rebellion against our Creator. 

The good news is that Fr. Rutler believes we can emerge from the rubble of civilization, but first there must be a battle between those who are inspired by God and those who are haunted by Him. This deadly winter — which has already begun descending — will be followed by the peace and joy of spring, but only if we turn our hearts to the Lamb of God. 

In these fascinating pages, you’ll also learn:

  • Why the Catholic Faith is the only means by which civilization can be restored

  • Why the twentieth century saw more martyrs than all previous Christian centuries combined

  • What happens when we let the government, rather than the Church, become our “Mother”

  • The difference between nostalgia and tradition

  • The most important virtue for young people today

  • Why, after so much slow disintegration, we are still waiting for true renewal in the Church
