Oh well, you can't please everyone.
When WND reported recently that Managing Editor David Kupelian's new blockbuster book, "The Marketing of Evil," had an average five star rating on Amazon.com – which means virtually all reviewers gave it the highest possible rating – critics took that as a call to action.
Within hours of the five-star report being posted on WND, reader reviews started appearing on Amazon portraying the popular book in a somewhat less flattering light. For instance:
You're Kidding, Right??
"The Marketing of Evil," the title says it all. Someone found a way to market this book, and it is pure evil! A waste of time and money. Save yourself the time and just head over to some lunatic right-wing website instead. It would be the same thing. I was expecting an intelligent discussion with facts. Instead I was taken for 20 bucks and was pushed some propaganda!
'More of the same'
The author has created an unmatched entry in the field of fantasy. He has created an alternative reality at a complete remove from what most of us call "reality," and it's so compelling that he has drawn large numbers of people into it, where they actually try to live. Quite an accomplishment.
'Frightening and ignorant'
If you need any evidence at all that the jihadist fervor we're supposedly fighting from Islamic radicals abroad is alive and well in the homeland, look no further than this book.
This is the most radical rightwing political book out there with an agenda of not just forwarding a political position, but overtaking all areas of society and replacing freedom and pluralism with fundamentalist reactionary totalitarianism.
… The only reason one should read this book is to come face to face with the radical "religious" right movement that sells ignorance and fear and calls it faith. Using a bastardized derivative of Christianity, Kupelian markets Nazism in new packaging – that of religious superiority to all those not goose-stepping in rhythm. A disgusting affront to anyone who values freedom of conscience and civil liberties.
'If you're a hateful, narrowminded loon, then this book is for you!'
Thankfully, I didn't have to buy this piece of garbage – I just read through it in a book store. To say that this is a work of fiction is an understatement. In short, the author takes turns pointing to various groups and calling them the devil in order to play to the fears of its intended audience. It's a conspiracy theory, wrapped in bigotry, with no basis at all in reality.
You get the idea. Thanks to these and other scintillating reviews, "The Marketing of Evil" has been downgraded from five to four-and-a-half stars.
No matter. But in case you'd like to know what everyone else is saying about "The Marketing of Evil," here is a quick sampling of the rest of the reviews. As you will see, they sound a very different theme – in fact, it's hard to believe they're writing about the same book:
'Wow, what an awakening!'
… This book has put a powerful voice to many things that truth-loving people in America have felt in their spirits for a long, long time. David Kupelian has done his homework, and no doubt he's going to take much flak from what is revealed in this book. I like my medicine straight and my truth even straighter, and this book delivers, with no apologies or flinching.
This is a book that will be hard to handle for many; some will write it off as the "extremely right-wing, fundamentalist, bigoted, politically incorrect, intolerant rantings or the Religious Right" and whatever other labels of such nature can be used. But this book is destined to make waves and open eyes for those who dare to read it. (And if you think he spares the Christian church from this factual expose, wait until you read the final chapter ...) His research is delivered with clarity and depth, and the many sources quoted demonstrate that this is beyond one man's opinion.
I for one am forever changed. Thank you, Mr. Kupelian, for such an honest, raw, logical, painful expose of the wounds of our society and your plea for a return to sanity and righteousness.
Score! for good, old-fashioned values
"The Marketing of Evil" irritates only those who hate the light of day, goodness, family and the Truth. I recommend this book for anyone who is looking for an explanation of the simple question: "How could we (Western Civilization) have sunk to such depraved depths?" It's a wake-up call for all honest people everywhere!
This is an excellent book for graduation, Christmas, or anyone interested in understanding modern Liberalism. Don't listen to those who can do nothing but name-call and act superior. They cannot debate, but have to run and hide when the truth is told!
'Opening this book is like turning on the Sun'
Mr. David Kupelian has written a remarkable book that reveals the how the American public has been taken down the slippery slope of moral relativism. It appears that the radical Left in the USA is on a mission to destroy traditional American values.
David shows quite clearly how the schools, courts, churches and family values have been trashed with the aid of the "mainstream" media. Every true American needs to read this book.
'A Must Read Book!'
The socialists in this country no doubt cannot stand this book even exists, however thinking people will find the book an eye-opener! The reviewers who didn't like the book are obviously hard-core leftists of the George Soros variety. If you value traditional American values, this book is for you!
'Every American should read this book!'
David Kupelian effectively enlightens his readers about the degradation of our society and the reasons for the widespread decline in morals and basic integrity. Historically documented and extremely readable, this book should be on every person's reading list. What ever happened to good and honest hearts?
'Read this book at your own risk'
Don't read this book if you value popular, political correctness more than facts. Facts about the individuals and groups that have waged a highly successful campaign to, well, market evil so that in the U.S. today we pretty much call evil good and good evil. Notice how the book's critics avoid any discussion around the facts? They can't dispute the facts in this book. So they just call names. And after all, they know facts don't really matter so much these days ... it's all about marketing.
'David Kupelian pulls back the veil on evil'
David Kupelian exposes like nobody before how key statistics related to crime, divorce and everything negative is related directly to our propensity to literally buy evil. Evil that was intentionally marketed to the public!
David covers everything from the gay rights movement to the ACLU atheist agenda to big-dollar medical establishments promoting abortion as "a woman's right to choose." Even the very slogan "a woman's right to choose" generated laughter when it was coined. It was part of a cold and calculated marketing scheme.
The chapter "blood confessions" explains exactly how a baby dies in the womb during an abortion. This is heart wrenching and very disturbing, so beware. You will never again doubt that a murder is taking place during an abortion. The fact that the American public has embraced this horrific evil is beyond words.
The book is rounded out with how the Christian majority has become morally diluted and therefore lost the moral influence it once had. David adds some insights on how this can all be turned around.
This book really pulls back the veil on evil. A must read for anyone that cares about the future of our nation.
'What an eye-opener!'
This was quite an eye-opening book on the state of the nation and how it got the way it is now. I will forever look at the media and liberalism even more cautiously than I have in the past. …
'This book is an eye opener'
David Kupelian breaks down in very simple terms what is obviously causing a breakdown in American culture and morals. … He shows how slick marketing has broken down our morals and have led our county down a slippery slope. Mr. Kupelian has written what many of us feel has happened but were not sure how to explain it. Most of us now know that we are in a cultural divide of right against left, liberal against conservative, blue state against red state. In "The Marketing of Evil", it is good against evil. He finally shows us how we can get back to the truth of our founding principles. This is a good read. I couldn't put it down.
'Truly an eye opener'
… The author has had the courage and determination to call a spade a spade by exposing the rampant commercial prostituting of our morals, values and principles all in the name of the almighty dollar leaving a current generation of toddlers stripped of any reference to what is right or wrong and without a moral compass. David Kupelian has authored a masterpiece that belongs in every home in America next to the Family Bible.
