The Rantings of An Uneducated Reactionary is a work of non-fiction focusing on current government and political issues and was penned by author Oscar J. Phillips. As the title suggests, the writing produces an accessible look at current philosophy, politics and the state of the social world from a conservative perspective, but not from an elitist or nose-turned-down viewpoint. Phillips writes with clarity and confidence about his beliefs, producing some controversial and unusual opinions that are not typical of the conservative thinker. This results in an interesting observational piece which also acts as a kind of manifesto to evoke future change.

Whilst I have to say that I don’t personally agree with all the opinions and ideas laid out by author Oscar J. Phillips, those who are seeking a radical new approach to their conservativism will certainly enjoy the truly reactionary work of this first-time author. Phillips writes well and with conviction, producing easy to understand prose and converting the jargon of the political world into digestible sections for readers to consider. Whilst his definition of some areas of politics is heavily slanted to a right-wing view, those definitions and introductions lay some good groundwork for people taking up a first-time interest in politics and allowing them a good base to go and research more for themselves. Overall, The Rantings of An Uneducated Reactionary makes a bold statement about the general discontent of all types of people in the world today and would make a solid addition to anyone’s shelf in the current climate of opinions.
