David Hogg Book in Children's Literature

Random House to publish Hogg book

Alinsky Rule #5 Post 18:

On April 18, 2018 the website EW.com announced that: “David Hogg and Lauren Hogg, students at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School and survivors of February’s deadly mass shooting in Parkland, Florida have signed a deal with Random House for a book to be published in June, EW has confirmed.”

The Hogg book entitled #NeverAgain is due to be released next June 5.

According to Random House, the book will be “a statement of generational purpose, and a moving portrait of the birth of a new movement.”

EW states that “the book will explore their efforts taking on some of the most powerful forces in Washington and beyond, and will detail their commitment to new legislation aiming to prevent future tragedies.”

David is quoted as saying that, “In times of struggle and tragedy, we can come together in love and compassion for each other. We can see each other not as political symbols, but as human beings. And then, of course, there will be times when we simply must fight for what is right.”

Gun Control Activist David Hogg

To date, David Hogg’s struggle has been largely aimed at the National Rifle Association (NRA) and Florida Republican politicians.

Anonymous sources with alleged indirect knowledge of the publishing efforts underway for this first Hogg book report that it is the beginning of a sequence of literary works that will establish David Hogg as the spokesperson for an array of social justice issues that address a variety of topics including, but not limited to, Climate Change, Poverty (lacking access to food, clean water, and shelter), Death Penalty, Environmental Rights, Access to Health Care, Heterosexism, Labor Law, Civil Rights (racism and sexism), Access to Education, White Supremacy, No More Guns Movement, Ban the NRA Movement, No Firearms Mean Peace Movement, Homelessness, International Disarmament, Nuclear Power, Unemployment, Food & Water Security, Criminal Justice System, Lowering Voting Age to Thirteen, and Caged Chicken Farms.

Sources familiar with the movement Hogg plans to lead suggest that the follow-on to #NeverAgain may be entitled My Struggle and will outline Hogg’s socio-political ideology for his generation’s vision of the future America.

Additionally,  other sources allege that book agents representing Hogg are in final discussions with MSNBC network executives concerning a hour-long, weekend, televised program where Hogg will interview others from his generation engaged as social warriors in movements such as Black Lives Matter, Antifa, Young American Socialists Movement (YASM),  Code Pink, A.N.S.W.E.R. Coalition, Adverse Childhood Experiences Movement, Animal Rights movement, Anti-bullying Movement , Anti-Capitalism Movement, Anti-Jock Movement, Anti-war Movement, Black Power Movement, Chicano Movement,  Ecofeminism Movement, Economy for the Common Good, Esperanto Movement, Farm Worker Movement,  Anti-Hate Speech Movement (on campuses), Indigenous Peoples Movement, Voluntary Human Extinction Movement, and many more.

The two leading names being considered for the program are “Hogg Wild” and “Hogg Heaven.”

Also, in an unrelated development, David Hogg was recently the honored recipient of the 2018 “Amazing Young Citizen Award” presented by the “Amazing” Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel.  His award included a plaque and a $100 scholarship to a college, somewhere, eventually.

Trumped Up: How Criminalization of Political Differences Endangers Democracy


“There are great legal minds; there are those who can also communicate well on television; then there is Dershowitz. The professor is uniquely capable of arguing a position, while putting a premium on legal and ethical legitimacy, not its popularity. Bravo, Dershowitz!” – Chris Cuomo, anchor and reporter, CNN

“This collection shows Alan Dershowitz at his best—passionate, fearless, and occasionally very wrong.” – Jeffrey Toobin, bestselling author of The Nine, Too Close to Call, A Vast Conspiracy, and The Run of His Life.

“Alan Dershowitz doesn’t twist the constitution to fit an agenda. He tells you what it REALLY means. That’s why he has always been my go-to guy on the law and the Constitution.” – Greta Van Susteren, former anchor at CNN, Fox News Channel, and MSNBC

“This book will reinforce Alan Dershowitz’s well-earned reputation as a brilliant legal analyst who, although often swimming against the established current, is usually right. Dershowitz substitutes his trenchant legal analysis for the wishful thinking and self-aggrandizing moral superiority that is presented by many in the academy and media, as well as Trump’s political opponents. Dershowitz’s arguments should cause all rational citizens to take a deep breath and recognize, as Dershowitz demonstrates, that Trump may be many things, but, under current law and the known evidence, the President is not a criminal. His analysis seems flawless to me.” – Harvey A. Silverglate, Criminal and civil liberties lawyer, author of Three Felonies a Day: How the Feds Target the Innocent

In our current age of hyper-partisan politics, nearly everyone takes sides. This is especially true with regard to the Trump presidency. It has become difficult to have a reasonable discussion about the most controversial president in our recent history. For Trump zealots, their president has not only committed no crimes, he has done nothing wrong. For anti-Trump zealots, nothing Trump has done—even in foreign policy—is good. Everything he has done is wrong, and since it is wrong, it must necessarily be criminal. This deeply undemocratic fallacy—that political sins must be investigated and prosecuted as criminal—is an exceedingly dangerous trend.

Hardening positions on both sides has been manifested by increasing demands to criminalize political differences. Both sides scream “lock ‘em up” instead of making substantive criticisms of opposing views.

The real fear, as Alan Dershowitz argues, in this compelling collection, is that we have weakened our national commitment to civil liberties as the Left becomes ever more intolerant and the Right slips into authoritarian rhetoric. The vibrant center is weakening, with traditional liberalism and conservatism becoming further apart, not just in approach, but in their respect for Constitutional norms that have served us well for more than two centuries.

While Donald Trump is not the only cause of this profound division, his election drew it to the surface and made it the dominant paradigm of political debate. Unless we as a nation begin to focus again on what unites us rather than on what divides us, America might not survive the next decade.
