Lies the Government Told You, by Andrew Napolitano
Lies the Government Told You: Myth, Power, and Deception in American History, by Judge Andrew P. Napolitano, most likely disappointed many conservatives. Even though Napolitano does share a few valuable insights, they are mostly overshadowed by his liberal ideas. The most disconcerting concept is how he views truth. "Truth," Judge Napolitano says, "is identity between intellect and reality." This nondescript view, which implies that truth is not absolute, casts doubt on the truthfulness of his remaining arguments. He also attempts to smear several respected Americans in history and at times neglects pertinent details, causing nearly imperceptible historical inaccuracies. I was also surprised to find several cases of offensive language. In conclusion, even though it does contain some truth, I would not recommend this book.
