The controversial book linking intelligence to class and race in modern society and what public policy can do to mitigate socioeconomic differences in IQ birth rate crime fertility welfare and poverty, b The American way of life built on individual liberty and limited government is on life support b br br American freedom is being gutted Whether we are trying to run a business practice a vocation raise our families cooperate with our neighbors or follow our religious beliefs we run afoul of the government not because we are doing anything wrong but because the government has decided it knows better When we object that government can and does tell us Try to fight this and we ll ruin you br br In this provocative book acclaimed social scientist and bestselling author Charles Murray shows us why we can no longer hope to roll back the power of the federal government through the normal political process The Constitution is broken in ways that cannot be fixed even by a sympathetic Supreme Court Our legal system is increasingly lawless unmoored from traditional ideas of the rule of law The legislative process has become systemically corrupt no matter which party is in control br br But there s good news beyond the Beltway Technology is siphoning power from sclerotic government agencies and putting it in the hands of individuals and communities The rediversification of American culture is making local freedom attractive to liberals as well as conservatives People across the political spectrum are increasingly alienated from a regulatory state that nakedly serves its own interests rather than those of ordinary Americans br br The even better news is that federal government has a fatal weakness It can get away with its thousands of laws and regulations only if the overwhelming majority of Americans voluntarily comply with them Murray describes how civil disobedience backstopped by legal defense funds can make large portions of the page Federal Code of Regulations unenforceable through a targeted program that identifies regulations that arbitrarily and capriciously tell us what to do Americans have it within their power to make the federal government an insurable hazard like hurricanes and floods leaving us once again free to live our lives as we see fit br br By the People s hopeful message is that rebuilding our traditional freedoms does not require electing a right thinking Congress or president nor does it require five right thinking justices on the Supreme Court It can be done by we the people using America s unique civil society to put government back in its proper box, No description available, b In the bestselling tradition of i Eats Shoot and Leaves i a gently curmudgeonly but invaluable guide to the dos and don ts of the workplace br b br Bestselling social historian Charles Murray has written a delightfully fussy and entertaining book on the hidden rules of the road in the workplace and in life from the standpoint of an admonishing but encouraging workplace grouch and taskmaster Why the curmudgeon The fact is most older more senior people over us in the workplace are closet curmudgeons In today s politically correct world they may hide their displeasure over your misuse of grammar or your overly familiar use of their first name without an express invitation But don t be fooled by their pleasant demeanor Underneath they are judging and evaluating your every move and utterance And in most cases if you want to advance in your career it is their approval that you need to win br br In the course of this pithy and powerful book Murray tells us the proper etiquette for email how to stop using such overused and fuzzy phrases as reaching out and sharing his thoughts on piercings and tattoos and proper dress the importance of rigor in language and good writing why being judgmental is good and other curmudgeonly pieces of wisdom and advice He suggests how to stand out at work work long hours when you are young and unencumbered by family and other obligations when to use strong language and when to avoid it and offers a bare bones usage primer on how to avoid confusing words like advice and advise which look or sound similar but have distinct meanings br br Written with both verve and reserve and drawing on the core values that have historically made good manners the best lubricant to social and professional advancement i The Curmudgeon s Guide i is an invaluable resource for anyone hoping to land the job of their dreams or get ahead in their career of choice
