We hear about them almost daily.

“Mentally ill” loners who slaughter a classroom of students before shooting themselves; young Americans, male and female, who travel overseas to join ISIS and become barbarians and sex slaves; people who amputate healthy body parts in a desperate attempt to become the opposite sex, or who purposely put drain cleaner in their eyes to blind themselves or cut off their own hand, all to “feel more comfortable” with themselves; entertainment idols who revel in wild sexuality and mock God; and of course, the latest outrages of a “transformative” president who supports America’s enemies, betrays her friends, and leads a lawless government that daily tramples the Constitution, encourages massive invasion of the American homeland and prosecutes Christians as criminals.

Yes, such sensational and bizarre stories increasingly dominate the news cycle.

snapping-of-the-american-mind-coverBut these represent only the barest tip of an iceberg, harbingers of a massive and growing pathology sweeping America in the Age of Obama, as bestselling author David Kupelian reveals in his newest book, “The Snapping of the American Mind: Healing a Nation Broken by a Lawless Government and Godless Culture,” releasing nationally on Oct. 13.

Kupelian, vice president and managing editor of WND and editor of Whistleblower magazine, is the author of two other influential books, “The Marketing of Evil,” and its sequel, “How Evil Works.”

Turbocharged by the Obama presidency, explains Kupelian, long-coalescing forces of the political and cultural left are bringing about their much-heralded “fundamental transformation of America.” That much everyone knows.

But this revolution is also causing a fundamental transformation of Americans – in profoundly negative and heretofore undocumented ways. In “The Snapping of the American Mind,” Kupelian shows how the progressive left – which today dominates America’s key institutions, from the news and entertainment media, to education, to government itself – is accomplishing much more than just enlarging government, redistributing wealth, and de-Christianizing the culture. With its wild celebration of sexual anarchy, its intimidating culture of political correctness, and its incomprehension of the fundamental sacredness of human life, the left is also, whether intentionally or not, promoting widespread dependency, debauchery, family breakdown, crime, corruption, addiction, despair and suicide.

In this powerful prosecutorial indictment, which marshals evidence from every sphere of life, Kupelian shows that not only is the left unhinged from reality and the lessons of history – it is literally driving tens of millions of Americans completely over the edge.

Examining the various social experiments the left has subjected Americans to in recent decades, the results are revealed to be nothing short of catastrophic. For example, abortion: Major studies now prove women having abortions are far more likely to later become mentally ill than pregnant women who do not. What about the widespread family breakdown so encouraged and incentivized by leftist policies? Fatherlessness is the No. 1 indicator for child poverty, drug abuse, sexual abuse, gang membership and imprisonment. What about the far-left orientation of most U.S. universities? Experts now conclude the extreme political correctness dominating many campuses and classrooms is literally inculcating “pathological thinking” in students.

In one groundbreaking chapter (“Chaos Theory”), the book even shows how the Alinsky-left persuasion techniques employed in the Age of Obama literally mimic classic wartime brainwashing – though in very slow motion.

Ironically, as Kupelian documents, the political and cultural left, continually claiming to be champions and defenders of society’s “victimized” classes (blacks, women, students, gays, Hispanics, “migrants”), turns out to be the greatest victimizer of all.

Living in a society dominated by a lawless government and godless culture has, unfortunately, borne bitter fruit, says Kupelian, as the statistics confirm:

In a nation of 325 million men, women and children, more than 130 million Americans are now dependent on mind-altering substances just to get through life; a staggering 1 in 4 middle-aged American women is taking antidepressants, 1 in 5 high-schoolers diagnosed with ADHD and 1 in 10 girls reportedly engages in “cutting” their bodies with a knife or razor. Pornography addiction is pandemic, and an astonishing 110 million Americans currently have a sexually transmitted disease. And Americans are increasingly unhealthy: One in 3 adults is clinically obese, as are more than 1 in 6 of the nation’s youths; and suicide has surpassed car crashes as the leading cause of injury death for Americans.

Surveying this growing chaos and suffering in American society, Kupelian exposes both the utopian revolutionaries and their extraordinary methods that have turned America’s most cherished values literally upside-down – to the point that today, in America, madness is celebrated and normality demonized.

Other highlights of “The Snapping of the American Mind” include:

  • How the left has succeeded in redefining not just “marriage,” but the rest of Americans’ core values, from “equality” to “justice” to “freedom”;
  • Why America, unquestionably the least racist nation on earth, is now being portrayed as a deeply racist pariah state;
  • Why the United States is intentionally being flooded with millions of needy, dependent, Third World immigrants;
  • How a group that amputates healthy body parts and has a 41 percent attempted suicide rate is officially declared “normal,” yet new “research” suggests conservatives have malformed brains;
  • Which of the two major U.S. political parties has a far higher incidence of mental illness;
  • Why Americans today are more stressed-out, confused, conflicted and addicted than at any time in the nation’s history – and where this ominous trend is leading.

Fortunately, explains Kupelian, the book “ultimately is focused on understanding, on real solutions, on healing, on redemption.” The book’s final chapters, he says, “explore in detail how America can be restored to her former, and still underlying, goodness and greatness – and just as important, how individuals, despite living in an age of high anxiety, moral confusion, and growing chaos, can find genuine happiness and personal healing.”

Joseph Farah, who as CEO of WND Books is the publisher of Kupelian’s latest work, says “‘The Snapping of the American Mind’ is so unique and deeply affecting that I believe it could actually influence the presidential race and even the future of our country.”

And the book is already resonating strongly with other prominent voices:

“David Kupelian is one of the very few must-read writers in the 21st century. He has the insight and wisdom to perceive the true state of the culture and the world, and he has the incredible ability to tell the Truth in a readable manner that helps the reader not only understand the Truth, but to understand how to redeem America’s culture as well.” – Dr. Ted Baehr, Chairman of the Christian Film and Television Commission, and publisher of MovieGuide®

“David Kupelian’s ‘The Snapping of the American Mind’ chronicles the decline and fall of America and shows that it is no accident, but rather a direct result of progressive misrule – an eye-opening, scary and galvanizing book.” – Dinesh D’Sousa, author and filmmaker

“In an era when our nation’s Judeo-Christian foundation is coming under increasingly open and brutal attack, Kupelian’s powerful and redemptive book couldn’t have come at a better time.” – David Barton, historian, author, and founder of WallBuilders

“An absolute must-read in the Age of Obama.” – Jamie Glazov, editor of and host of “The Glazov Gang”

“As every form of evil, unethical, ridiculous, bizarre behavior is normalized by the mainstream gatekeepers of America, we ask ourselves, ‘Are we losing our minds as a society?’ Kupelian answers that question with a resoundingly well-researched conclusion. Read it!” – Michele Bachmann, former congresswoman and Republican presidential candidate

“David Kupelian has once again given us a must-read in these times of political turbulence and cultural insanity.” – Paul Kengor, author of “Takedown” and professor of political science at Grove City College

“This book is a stunning exposé of all that is evil and delusional in the liberal-progressive plan to destroy the American miracle. A moral tour de force!” – Lyle Rossiter, M.D., forensic and general psychiatrist and author of “The Liberal Mind”

“Kupelian points the way to national and personal renewal.” – Phyllis Schlafly, author, lawyer and founder of Eagle Forum

“Maybe once in a generation are we so graced with a communicator like David Kupelian.

In ‘The Snapping of the American Mind,’ David explores the root cause of our age of lawlessness and moral anarchy, yet somehow leaves us filled with hope for American revival and renewal. It’s just the book Americans need at such a time as this.” – J. Matt Barber, columnist and associate dean at Liberty University School of Law
