review: lies the government told you - myth, power, and deception in american history by Andrew P. Napolitano

"... And the star-spangled banner in triumph shall wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave!"
- Francis Scott Key 1814 

Lies The Government Told You
Judge Andrew P. Napolitano minces no words when he boldly enumerates 17 lies that the government of the United States of America manufactures and continues to perpetuate to its citizens. he traces its roots from the Declaration of Independence on July 4, 1776 to the present Obama administration. he supports his claims by mentioning, detailing and cross-referencing historical records, court decisions, state and federal laws, reports and other anecdotal evidence.
if the bastion of democracy and the champion of freedom could allegedly get away with these lies, what then can one say of other governments whose democratic principles are modeled after those of the United States? what does one do now? what options does one have? where does one go or turn to if the institution that he relies on to protect his rights is the very same one that denies and infringes upon them?
corruption in government and other institutions is certainly a world wide phenomenon. despite what history has repeatedly shown and taught us, we have never truly learned its lessons.
indeed with power comes great responsibility. it is a responsibility to preserve the truth and not twist nor conceal it, to create and not destroy, to promote life and not a culture of death.
this book and its contents is certainly an eye-opener for me. though i am taking everything with a grain of salt, it is still disturbing to say the least. truth, they say, is stranger than fiction but after reading Lies The Government Told You, i amend that to truth is really scarier than fiction.
