Discovered this little gem at my local bookstore purely by accident when I picked it up due to its eye-grabbing title. Read it cover-to-cover right there in the store, in the amount of time it took me to enjoy a single cup of coffee. Didn't buy it that day, though, and never saw it again at any of the local bookstores. But the things articulated in this book stuck with me. Years later, still having only ever laid my eyes on that one copy, I bought it here on Amazon.
This book has one of the highest ratios of "Transformative Notions Per Dollar" ratios in my entire personal library, and I recommend it to every critical thinker I meet.
"the danger to America is not a single politician with ill intent. Or even a group of them. The most dangerous thing any nation faces is a citizenry capable of trusting a liar to lead them. In the long run, it is much easier to undo the policies of crooked leadership than to restore common sense and wisdom to a deceived population willing to elect such a leader in the first place. Any country can survive having chosen a fool as their leader. But history has shown time and again that a nation of fools is surely doomed."
Are we as a nation doomed? I think that the jury is still out on that.
Andy Andrews point is to jolt the reader awake and lead that reader to act. One of the obvious villains in todays world is Political Correctness. Think how many times you wish to convey a point of view and realize you just don't want to go there. Perhaps even more serious is our acceptance of lying from our elected leaders. We joke about it, "How can you tell a politician is lying?" "If his lips are moving." Politicians lie to protect themselves or just to get you to support them or some cause they want you to support. This phenomenon goes back at least as far as Woodrow Wilson and FDR, each of whom lied about their intentions to lead the country to war. Each to be reelected. I would contend there is little value to having free elections if we do not hold our leaders responsible for their lies. (I am not naive enough to say we should only elect leaders who never lie lest we find ourselves leaderless!) Mature judgment is required.
Read this book. Pass it along to a friend. Reach deep within yourself and determine how to react to the moral failures of our leaders. Ultimately we cannot blame only our leaders for their lying behavior. A long, studied look into the mirror will reveal it is you and I who are largely to blame.
