33 Questions About American History

33 Questions About American History You’re Not Supposed to Ask, by Thomas Woods, Jr. ★★★★
This is a nice book that has 33 short chapters covering a broad array of subjects in American history that are generally taught with a mistaken bias in public school. Woods looks at American history from a libertarian perspective and notes that we are generally misled on many issues. These issues all center around the promotion of big government, whether it be the issues of the wars we’ve fought, the taxes we pay, or the ever-increasing laws and regulations imposed on us, all for our supposed good. Woods capably shows that in general, the government has consistently made matters worse for us, rather than better and that we now have far less freedom and security, rather than more of the same. He capably discusses the real issues of the civil war that generally are not mentioned any longer and takes aims at various subjects including Teddy Roosevelt turning the presidency into a Monarchy, Hoover, and FDR creating and maintaining the depression, Clinton creating a far worse racial slaughter in Kosovo than before we entered the Balkans, how unions have killed themselves, immigration issues, Indian issues, affirmative acti0n, and many buzz words of contemporary issues that are not really so contemporary, and have been solved in a manner contrary to the constitution, and essentially to the disadvantage of all parties. It summarizes issues I’ve already been aware of, but provides for some informative, fun reading.
