Book Review: SJWs Always Lie

Recently I read the book SJWs Always Lie:  Taking Down the Thought Police, by Vox Day. This book has many hidden and not so hidden treasures in it, and came highly recommended.

I've read Vox Day's blog posts for years. Generally I skip over his penchant for detailing his clashes with folks over matters of gaming or science fiction writing, as I'm not overly fond of either topic. To be sure, this book has plenty of gaming and sci-fi; but it is quite forgivable, as it helps Day give solid advice for dealing with Social Justice Warriors (SJWs) everywhere. 

Day describes in detail his dealings with SJWs in the gaming and sci-fi arenas. In so doing, he draws several broad conclusions that are true of SJWs everywhere. He summarizes the three laws of SJW, eight stages of SJW attack sequence, what to do when SJWs attacking, strategic principles (for dealing with SJWs), and winning the Social Justice War in the West.

There are also many other related tidbits of wisdom scattered throughout the work. I made notes as I read along. You may wish to do the same.

All you absolutely need to know from the book are summarized by Day's Three Laws of SJW:
1. SJWs always lie.
2. SJWs always double down.
3. SJWs always project.

Additionally, he gives other lists, mentioned above, that you will be better for understanding. Most of these I already knew and adhered to. However, it's good to see it formalized in list fashion.

Great book. 10/10
If you are classically conservative, libertarian-leaning, or otherwise part of the American political "fringe," then this book is a must-read.
