Description

New York Times bestselling journalist John Stossel shows how the expansion of government control is destructive for American society.

Politicians—and we voters—can dream of guaranteed incomes or green energy. But the mature response to cries of “Yes, we can!” should be “No, we can’t”—not when “we” means government. There is nothing that government can do that we cannot do better as free individuals. —John Stossel in No, They Can’t

John Stossel debunks the most revered of society’s sacred cows in this spirited New York Times bestseller: our belief that government can solve our problems. Stossel insists that we discard the myth of the “perfect” government—left or right—and retrain our brain to rethink our lives as independent individuals in light of such topics as

HEALTH CARE • DEFENSE SPENDING

JOB CREATION • GUN CONTROL

PUBLIC EDUCATION • ENERGY

MINIMUM-WAGE LAWS • CLIMATE CHANGE

THE NATIONAL DEBT • POLITICAL CORRECTNESS

THE ASSAULT ON FOOD . . . and much more!
