How Law Is Suffocating America

Book - 1994
Average Rating:
Rate this:
Distressing, disturbing, devastatingly detailed--this stunning examination of how modern laws are diminishing America exposes the drawbacks of rule-bound government, tells why nothing gets done, reveals the phony pretensions of law, and shows why well-intentioned laws have actually devalued rights. In short, The Death of Common Sense demonstrates how the buck never stops and how ell-meaning laws are creating a nation of enemies. (Poltics/Current Events)

This is an alarming account of how far we have come along the road of state manipulation of our personal and business activities and an indictment of the politicians and bureaucrats who have caused it to happen. The book has been around since 1994; yet, to my knowledge there has been no serious attempt, either in the United States which is the subject of the book or in Canada to reverse this trend even though it should be of much greater concern to the publics of those countries than is whatever happens in Iraq or Afghanistan.

What prevents this book from being of five-star caliber is its lack of an index, which ought to be mandatory for any lengthy work of nonfiction.
