Book description

The sabotaging of family and marriage is a watershed moment in history. Extreme-left radicals have tried different tactics from the early 19th century to the sexual revolution of the 1960s, but at long last they have the vehicle to make it happen: same-sex marriage. Now, as the legal definition of marriage is changed, the floodgates are open, and the fundamental transformation of the family will take on new speed. Efforts to redefine the family structure have been long at work, and there have been some influential forces on the far left and communist left that cannot and should not be ignored in that process.

In Takedown Paul Kengor exposes these origins, starting with Karl Marx, and traces them through the sordid history of people like Margaret Sanger, Wilhelm Reich, Herbert Marcuse, and assorted 1960s radicals. What were once fringe concepts have become accepted by mainstream thought and are today welcomed by many legislators and judges. Kengor notes how not so long ago today’s leftists who are attacking traditional marriage would have been dismissed with no serious concern as left-wing cranks. But now, with formal legalisation of same-sex marriage afoot, they are getting what they’ve wanted for generations: the literal redefinition of the family.

Takedown exposes how same-sex marriage is serving as a Trojan horse for the far left to secure the final takedown of marriage that it has long wanted, and countless everyday people are oblivious to the deeper forces at work. Takedown takes no prisoners and bluntly shows the reader that even Karl Marx and his more anti-marriage comrade Engels would be dumbfounded at the mere thought that ordinary people would gladly join them in their rejection of God’s design for natural marriage and the family.
