“With the unapologetic outrage of a saint and the fearless fury of a General Patton, here comes David Kupelian turning a blowtorch of good upon the putrid cobwebs of evil.”  That’s how legendary radio talk-show host Barry Farber sizes up David Kupelian’s newest book, “How Evil Works.”

Released this week by Simon & Schuster (Threshold Editions), “How Evil Works” – subtitled “Understanding and Overcoming the Destructive Forces That Are Transforming America” – makes its official national debut on the Sean Hannity Radio Show this afternoon.

“Despite the human race’s extraordinary capacity for invention and progress,” says the book’s description, “we clearly have a millennia-old blind spot in one all-important area. We don’t understand evil – what it is, how it works, and why it so routinely and effortlessly ruins our lives. Put another way, we don’t understand ourselves.”

In “How Evil Works,” the bestselling author of “The Marketing of Evil” probes the ancient question of evil through a modern journalist’s eye, once again demonstrating his uncanny knack for demystifying complex, elusive, and intimidating subjects with fresh insights into the hidden mechanisms of seduction, corruption, and power politics. Diving into today’s most electrifying news stories – from terrorism and school shootings to high-profile sex scandals and political dysfunction – Kupelian explores such profoundly troubling questions as:

  • What’s really going on in Washington, D.C., today? (The Marxist strategy of manufacturing and exploiting crises is the central operating principle of the Obama presidency.)

  • How does terrorism really work? (It’s intended not just to frighten and intimidate, but to reprogram our beliefs, per the Stockholm Syndrome.)
  • Why are big lies more believable than little ones? (Everyone tells little white lies, but not big, bold, audacious ones, and so they assume others wouldn’t either – an assumption world-class liars use to their great advantage. More importantly, big lies possess an inherent power to upset us – triggering a key control mechanism.)
  • Why are neo-pagan and New Age religions like Wicca becoming so popular? (America’s increasing disillusionment with Christianity has created a giant cultural and spiritual vacuum, into which alternative religions are being drawn.)
  • Why do so many entertainment celebrities that “have it all” – talent, fame, good looks, wealth, influence – end up self-destructing? (Being worshipped like gods is similar to taking a potent, intensely pleasurable drug like cocaine – it feels good for a time, but inevitably causes tremendous problems.)
  • Why are boys doing worse in school today than girls? (As America becomes increasingly “feminized,” boys, men and masculinity are being subtly but seriously maligned.)
  • Why do we treat mental-emotional-spiritual problems like rage and depression with drugs? (We’ve been seduced by secular medical “experts” who tell us what all egos love to hear: “It’s not your fault.”)

“Using today’s most sensational news stories as a starting point,” writes Kupelian in the book’s introduction, “together we will explore the actual mechanics, the inner workings, the ‘operating system’ of this most vexing and under-examined part of all our lives.”

Now here’s the good news: “Once we really understand how evil works – not just in the disasters and mega-crimes that dominate the headlines, but in our own lives as well – evil actually loses much of its power over us, and the way out becomes more clear. Thus, ‘How Evil Works’ bears a powerful message of genuine hope.”

David Kupelian is an award-winning journalist and managing editor of online news giant WorldNetDaily.com as well as its monthly newsmagazine, Whistleblower. His bestselling book “The Marketing of Evil,” currently in its eleventh printing, has become a modern classic, widely praised for its uncommonly clear and powerful explanation of exactly what has gone wrong in America – and why.

WND founder and editor Joseph Farah says this about “How Evil Works”: “Thoreau said ‘There are a thousand hacking at the branches of evil to one who is striking at the root.’ In his tour de force ‘How Evil Works,” WND Managing Editor David Kupelian strikes at evil’s root with devastating effectiveness, building on the revelations in his classic best-seller ‘The Marketing of Evil.’ No library is complete without both the original and the dazzling sequel.”

And No. 1 New York Times bestselling author Jerome R. Corsi, Ph.D., says: “‘How Evil Works’ is fresh, original, and startlingly insightful. David Kupelian reveals the hidden mechanisms that allow lies and deception to take root in modern America. A truly important book.”
