Fight Fire With Fire by David Horowitz

I’m pleased to be here. I want to thank Tim Phillips for inviting me to this
gathering, and the Koch brothers for organizing it. Most of you probably know that
I grew up in a Communist family and had a misspent youth as a Marxist leader of
the New Left in the 1960s. In later years, when I re!ected on the damage our
“revolution” had in!icted on our country, I would ask myself “Where was the ruling
class? Why didn’t they defend the System from these modern day Luddites and
America haters? Why didn’t they expel us from the schools we tried to shut down?
Why did they give us platforms to advance our agendas? What were they
thinking?”


As the years progressed, and the radicals first infiltrated and then took over the Democratic Party, I found myself asking, “Where is the ruling class? Why don’t they see the threat this radicalized party is posing to their interests and the country’s? Why isn’t the ruling class mobilizing its resources to oppose an assault that is threatening the free market system and the very foundations of our democracy?

And then, last year, I was invited to this event, and here you are. Except that I
no longer believe there is a ruling class or that you are one. America is — as it has
always been — a pluralistic society with competing centers of power. Moreover, as
Jacob Laksin and I have shown in our book The New Leviathan the preponderance
of political wealth is on the left, and has been put in the service of parties and
causes that are anti-capitalist. As Jacob and I showed, progressive foundations
engaged in political activities are more than 10 times wealthier than their conservative counterparts, and are able to deploy resources for political ends that are greater by far than even that.

Historically the movers of radical transformations have always been drawn
from the ranks of the upper classes. The French Revolution was initiated by French
aristocrats; Karl Marx was funded and promoted by a capitalist factory owner. And
the Obama socialists who today threaten our way of life are swimming in wealth
up to their eyeballs. The purpose of these observations is "rst to underscore how
important you as creators of wealth are to the battle facing us; and second, how
much catching up you have to do in order for us to prevail.
