BTW, I am an English teacher, and the books/works of lit. that counteracted all of the liberal crap are as follows:
Starship Troopers by Heinlein
Lord of the Flies by Golding
1985 by Burgess
Any Ayn Rand
Emerson’s “American Scholar”
Solzhenitsyn’s “Denisovitch” and “Archipelego”
but the biggest of all:
Whether you believe it or not, the Bible gave me a depth of understanding of literature and psychology that transcends everything.
