Judge Andrew P. Napolitano examines the concept the government hates and fears the most: Freedom.
|The Truth Will Set You Free|
The United States of America was born out of a bloody revolt against tyranny. Yet almost from its inception, the government here has suppressed liberty. In his sixth book on the Constitution and human freedom, Judge Andrew P. Napolitano asks: Where does freedom come from? How can government in America exercise power that the people have not given to it? What forces have collaborated to destroy personal freedom?
In this back-to-basics on freedom, Judge Napolitano addresses hard questions:
- Do we still have a Constitution?
- What are the limits to government power in a free society?
- Why does the government attack, rather than defend, our rights?
- If our rights are inalienable, how can the government take them away?
- Do we really own any private property?
The Judge gives a sweeping treatment of natural rights and all the philosophical, religious, and ideological principles that underscore the concept of human freedom.
When it comes to the truth, it doesn’t matter your political view.. facts are facts, and they cannot be denied. We live in a very deceitful world where the government is trusted entirely too much. I recommend reading this book if only to open your eyes and shed light on topics most people don’t even realize and the role of the government.
I originally picked this book for my Dad to read, but life threw us a curve ball and he’s been reading other books for now–but I can’t hardly wait to hear his opinion of this one when ever he does read it!
I only know the Judge from what I saw on Fox News, and now that he’s off the air I am very happy to learn he has several books I can read. This was actually a great opportunity for me to dive into his musings, and I look forward to the others.
