“A critical insight into malignant ideals devastating Western civilization”
- Peter Titlestad, Professor Emeritus of English Literature, University of Pretoria

“A perturbing but necessary exploration of primary human values struggling for survival”
- Henk Stoker, Professor of Apologetics & Ethics, North-West University

“The harmful effects of complex ideological forces threatening the legal and ethical order of society are revealed in this compelling study”
- Hilton Staniland, Professor of Law, Queen Mary University

The real “enemies of the innocent” – the vulnerable in society – are the visionaries: those intellectuals, idealists, philosophers, and social engineers who aim to destroy traditional values under the guise of an ideological social justice theory. Nils Haug’s penetrating new book explores these critical challenges to our society with its established way of life. Long-standing political, legal, and cultural arrangements, with the essential freedoms inherent in the democratic political order, are under lethal threat. Yet, the core conflict is between Judeo-Christianity and heretical secular humanist, new age, neo-pagan ideologies, with focus on the deep issues of truth, personal identity, meaning, and purpose of life. These heresies are not new, originating in ancient times, but arising again to cause much discord in our culture.
