Liz Truss's Ten Years to Save the West: Faltering Conservatism, the Tyranny of Technocracy, and CINOs

Liz Truss's book, "Ten Years to Save the West," argues that the Conservative movement in the West has been faltering for over a decade.
According to Truss, the West has become decadent and complacent, with Conservative politicians accepting extremist environmentalist dogma and wokeism.

The text discusses former Conservative Party leader's criticism of her party for being too lenient towards decisions made by the previous Labour government, specifically the Human Rights Act.

She believes there are "leftists" within the Conservative Party and labels some of her colleagues as "Conservatives in Name Only." She also criticizes the Conservative Party's handling of the environmental debate, claiming they have lost arguments to the left and that many environmentalists are "watermelons" (green on the outside, red on the inside).

The greatest threat to the environment, according to her, is the rise of authoritarian regimes.

Another major theme of the book is her concern about the "tyranny of the technocracy." The text discusses former UK Prime Minister Liz Truss's criticisms towards the current political and economic landscape.

She believes there are too many powerful officials with insufficient accountability, specifically targeting Bank of England Governor Andrew Bailey for her downfall.

Bailey has chosen not to respond to her criticism.

Truss also intends to abolish the independent economic forecaster, the Office for Budget Responsibility, and withdraw the UK from the European Convention on Human Rights.

Additionally, she suspects an excessive number of civil servants are political activists.
