Grades are so inflated at Harvard that 85 percent of students graduate with "honors"...

These absurdities are a sampling of the spreading decay in the American culture, a phenomenon best-selling author Martin L. Gross has dissected in The End of Sanity, a carefully researched examination of contemporary social madness. Watching the nation's tradition of fairness and individuality decline, he describes how it is giving way to a reign of conformity and error, including the insidious "Political Correctness." The crisis he describes goes beyond an attack on reason--actually heralding the end of sanity in American life.

Spearheaded by what he calls the "New Establishment"--a coalition of anti-intellectual academics, bureaucrats, politicians, judges, military leaders, social workers--the concepts that made America great are being thrown onto the cultural scrap heap in favor of a new "experimental" society that favors the few and ignores the many.

But, says the author, there is a cure for America's ailment once we have diagnosed how deeply social and cultural insanity has infected the nation. Gross gets to the root of the problem, including examining the "gods" of the New Establishment, then provides remedies that can reverse the wrong-headedness.

The End of Sanity is the most explosive book yet from the New York Times bestselling author of The Government Racket. This new work is essential reading for everyone concerned about the direction in which our nation is headed--a much-needed guide on how to lead America out of the social and moral morass toward a greater, saner tomorrow.

In 1987 Alan Bloom wrote THE CLOSING OF THE AMERICAN MIND, predicting the insanity that would result from a politcally correct educational system. In Martin Gross' book, THE END OF SANITY, it becomes quite apparent that Bloom was absolutely correct. Gross provides practical examples of what happens when society pursues public opinion over truth.
Gross outlines how deconstructionists have supressed reason and denied truth in the name of philosphy. He points out that current politcally correct thought is evidence of not only the real problems in modern mass societies but also of the superficiality of the response to those very real problems.
The decay of our society is a sad thing to witness, let alone read about. Yet THE END OF SANITY is oddly entertaining, and hopefully will awaken the American spirit before it is too late to be saved.

Great read.

The bad reviews for this book came from Washington DC, and "Saneville" probably a suburb of DC. This is an important point. The DC establishment does not understand, and never can understand the damage they do. Anyone that has to actually work for a living, raise a family and worry about reality will relate to Mr Gross.
While this may not be his best work, I think it is an important work and should be required reading in High Schools. (except Washington DC high schools where they measure illiteracy rates of high school graduates).
Read this book, I am buying several more copies to pass out to friends

I recently browsed through this again, and what Martin Gross lays out in detail is more relevant, powerful, and frightening than ever. The New Establishment he defines as the driving force for the disintegration from within, equipped with the perverse, destructive Trinity of Freud (victimization/entitlement), Marx (class warfare/income redistribution), and Jesus (guilt-based compassion/diversity and multiculturalism), has taken complete control of the 21st-century American psyche. People are bombarded by the mantras such as paying your so-called fair share, 'safe spaces,' Black Lives Matter, legitimacy of sanctuary cities, and transgender bathroom rights while there is a continuous threat of a terrorist attack on American soil any day of the week. Gross' work is an indispensable source for anyone to comprehend the Left's diabolical plan before any attempt to counter it can even be conceived. An amazing analysis of what was already taking place back in the 1990s and has now become the absolute norm in societal/human dynamics of today, these passages in the Prologue leaves the reader so much to ponder and how to survive in this ever-changing world of 'collective insanity': 'The attack comes in various forms, but it is united within a single rubric, the New Establishment, which is defined here for the first time and which has woven itself into the very fiber of the nation, weakening it as never before.' 'The most disturbing aspect of this new force is that it exploits America's desire to conform, an insidious way in which our culture suffers damage.' 'Today, we are living through such a form of collective insanity that daily gains in power despite its punishing effect on everything it touches, including the national psyche.' 'Like many tyrannies, it seeks to impose its supposed "beneficence" (more likely, vainglory) through intimidation and false dogmas that harm the majority of the citizens.' 'Rather than advance "fairness" and "equality" as claimed, these new forces have set back that goal a generation by producing a divided and divisive nation, a rare failure of onetime American civic genius.' 'By conforming to someone else's definition of proper speech, attitudes, thought, and behavior, we are both losing our freedom and violating common justice, attributes that had distinguished America from the once-dogmatic states of Europe and Asia. 'We gave these blessings to the world, only now to find ourselves losing them at home.'

Wanted to read up on someone who is being a watchdog to shed some light on what is going on in politics. This book makes you feel a bit bad about what is going on. Heard he has another book on how to cut some of the fluff from the budget to balance it and start paying off the big US debt. I'm into that.

It was a citing in one of Neil Postman's books that made me purchase "The End of Sanity," an unsuccessful work written to point out an invisible enemy called the "New Establishment."
The cover is almost identical to the Star Wars logo and on the back cover you read a self-gratifying section taken from the prologue and a 'the end is near' call. Now you're invited to save the world. So please proceed in !
First chapter is introduction. In one sentence, white males are being oppressed in the "New Establishment."
In the second chapter Freud and Marx are described as being the "Gods of the New Establishment." Mr. Gross touches good points when he argues about Freud but when it comes to Marx, there are no evidences, works cited, or any kind of economic argument that would make one believe that some kind of "hidden marxism" in the USA has been destroying the middle class. There are just meaningless arguments hovering in the midair.
In the third chapter he attacts women, attacks women, attacks women, attacks Yale Medical School Admission Officers (for admitting women) and attacks women. Mr Gross should spend some time and read "The Mismeasure of Man" to have an idea about the Bell Curve. What he should have done was to clearly say "I hate women !"
In fourth chapter, Mr. Gross turnes his interest from women to universities. Here, Brown University appears as the next victim. It's difficult to believe in what I say so let's read what Mr. Gross has written : "Despite that, in the modern world of academic deception, Brown has an undeservedly fashionable reputation, particularly among those who fail to gain admission to Harvard" (Gross 110). Does he get paid for writing such kind of phrases ? I don't think so because Yale, Stanford and Harvard are the next in line to receive free tuition! Surprisingly, Columbia happens to be the only 'proper' university in the USA according to this book. As a Columbia undergraduate student (but not CC), I can tell that the Columbia Administration, apart from offering money, would not even lend their sins to Mr.Gross. (By the way, many students at Columbia, including minorities are quite happy about the core curriculum.)
Then there is the immigration section where immigrants are attacked. Please bear in mind that in this section you'll read how the "ultrarich" hates poor immigrants. This section would not be different if those ultrarich Americans hired a writer to express their displeasure from seeing non-white people waiting at the local bus stop from their multi,multi-million dollar houses. However, this section is worth reading and it clearly and aptly expresses some gaps in the constitution that are exploited by illegal immigrants.
The madness expressed by Gross clearly exists, but his work is much closer to a ufology type of non-creditable work rather than being a scientific study. You might get excited, very very excited but this book will not satisfy your mind. (It can not!)
I received this book today from Amazon and very soon this bestseller author's title will return back to Seattle.
