Rethinking Politics and Your Life
Do you feel that life is too focused on making ends meet: mortgage, credit card, and car payments, paying back student loans, childcare fees, health insurance premiums, and perhaps putting food on the table? And on top of that thinking about saving for a rainy day and for retirement?
Do you think that you don’t have as much control of your life as you would like? And as a result, are you attracted to the promise of a government safety net from cradle-to-grave that will take care of all of the above and more, and let you focus on the important things in life?
Whether you answered “yes” or “no” to these questions, this book is for you. Asserting that you have the moral Right to be in control of your life, “Think Right or Wrong, Not Left or Right: A 21st Century Citizen Guide” advocates that neither today’s political left nor right have your best interests at hand. Their alluring promise of a cradle-to-grave safety net is deceptive, as in reality it transfers control of your life from you to society, one government program, one tax, and one regulation at a time.
The book shows why the traditional political left-to-right spectrum presents you with two false alternatives, and that politics instead should be viewed through a morally Right-to-Wrong lense. It explains “the moral groundswell” required for change to take place, and concretizes how we may get from here to there with examples from health insurance and healthcare, retirement planning, and education. Finally, the book offers you a blueprint for affecting change that will move society towards giving you more control of your life.
Whether you consider yourself left-, right-, or independent-leaning, “Think Right or Wrong, Not Left or Right: A 21st Century Citizen Guide” challenges your views of morality and politics—and provides a reset of what it means to be in control of your life.
