There s a moment in this book where Larry Elder xplicitly says that his life goal is not to better the world but to be rich This is ultimately the most self reflective moment in this tome which undoubtedly Cause Of Fear eludes the author Elder has no principles He s just trying to make moneyIf you re at all withxperienced with Larry Elder s radio shows he spouses a neo fascist ideology under A Pretense Of Libertarianism While Exhibiting Bizarre Fits Of Rage pretense of libertarianism while xhibiting bizarre fits of rage views are at times disconnected from reality itself much like his refusal to acknowledge that he was wrong to support the neocon agenda He s a Republican hiding behind the pretense of libertarianism He went completely in when Bush sold America the Ira war in 2003Elder hasn t lived an interesting The Game of Love enough life to write a compelling autobiography If he has he does not want to write about such matters which might be refreshing if it didn t feel like he is nonetheless attempting to communicate something here about himself his father or his socio political views He spentight hours in jailbecause he mouthed off to a cop after being rightfully accused of jaywalking Not Solo: A Star Wars Story: Expanded Edition exactly Hurricane territory and this doesn t go anywhereInvery ancedote Elder nds up doing the right thing Everyone who doesn t listen to conventional wisdom and Larry Elder nd up doing the wrong thing They suffer the conseuences of not listening to Larry Elder This is incredibly bad writing of man obsessed with framing himself as great without also acknowledging his faults This is comparable to Barack Obama s memoirs however Obama has lived a interesting life a biracial child ssentially abandoned by his father and thru ambition and character attended the Ivy League became a law professor a community organizer a US Senatorand then the President of the United States a leader ven if you don t necessarily agree with where he is leading Elder s work in the The Lady in Pink entertainment industry pales in comparison to that and his light tomends up reflecting how uninteresting his life has been with only the benefit of addressing how much better Compton used to be though he still presents it as an urban Mayberry of sortsHis parents had a fraught relationship which was perhaps the most scandalous part of Mr Elder s life they Eyes ended up sleeping in separate rooms Divorce was taboo for their generation This is one of the few interesting things that happened in his household that Elder should vexpanded on but he doesn t He also doesn t get too much into his relationship with his brothers He lost one to drug abuse and he does pay tribute to how beloved he was despite not being conventionally regarded as good or usefulElder s main complaint about his father was that he was humorless man who did not show affection asily It doesn t occur to Elder that his father might be surly for a reason He grew up in a time and place where black men weren t xactly treated well This is a sociological idea called conditioning which is the root of all mind sciences Elder meanwhile was spoiled by a greater degree of tolerance towards blacks that weren t given to Depression Sinner's Heart era blacks who had to deal with not just legalized racism but the Klan as annforcer of the status uo He takes issue with government sanctioned discrimination however whites can discriminate against blacks because that s the way things are which makes it okay The government shouldn t get involved to stop racial discrimination ither because the government is normally the problem Elder imagines veryone hated his father for being a Republican however he s also depicted as a pillar of the community which completely voids the argument that blacks hate Republicans or are hostile to conservatism More precisely it s the shrill and delusional messenger that has kept so many blacks loyal to the opposition since the Johnson administrationNor has Elder been abused Spirit of the Wolf enough to write a compelling memoir of survival Elder and his brothers were spanked with belts and switches notlectrical cords or rods and only to discipline them not out of parental cruelty When the kids cry as they are disciplined the father declares I ll give you a reason to cry This was unbelievably a common saying amongst the Greatest Generation as they raised their kids and is not uniuely something that happened to Larry Elder My grandmother used it on my mother The senior Elder was prone to comical fits of outrage However a moment of levity comes from his pronouncement.
