William J. Bennett's new book, A Century Turns, is a fire proof suite, for someone who has been hit hard by the "Rocket of Change".
The book is a superb historical narrative of the last twenty years (1989-2009).
The book explores changing America. Obama said, "A Change, A Change, and A Change!" But what is the change he is discussing? William Bennett shows where we were and what is happening today in a clear conservative point of view. It is a critical book for those who were raised Liberal, in Blue States, and taught by teachers who loved their leather bound volumes of Marx.
Can you feel the hot flames from the after-burn of the plethora of multiple political pundits? Is your mind numb? Are you striving to be Ignorant of the entire historical hullabaloo coming from your television set? I am afraid to say that when the news comes on I often to turn it off. This mental state is dangerous in a democracy. Democracies require educated people. This ignorant mental state of America is ripe for the power brokers to yield what they believe is best for the people. William Bennett helps me desire to re-tune to the political spectrum without the effects of Future Shock.
(A note to Liberals) Even if you don't change your spots, you will be able to discuss the issues with a clearer perspective and have greater compassion for your conservative friends.
I recommend this book. 4.5/5 Stars. Clucking with Historical Precedent.
