How to Ruin the United States of America / Edition 1

On the heels of his very successful books, How to Ruin Your Life, How to Ruin Your Love Life, and How to Ruin Your Financial Life, Ben Stein, in collaboration with his pal Phil DeMuth, has tongue firmly in cheek once again as he comes up with surefire ways to ruin the greatest nation in the history of the human race.
Try a few of these on for size:
·       Trust the United Nations to protect us and our security.
·       Make it unlawful to worship God or even to show images of the Ten Commandments.
·       Convert our universities into fortresses of anti-Americanism, hatred of freedom, and centers of confusion and ignorance.
·       Encourage contempt for the family and for the community.
·       Allow Hollywood to brainwash us into believing that only suckers and criminals fight for their country.
·       Treat the military, the police, firefighters, and teachers as losers and pay them starvation wages.
Hey, does any of this sound familiar? Maybe that’s because it’s already happening! Ben and Phil give you all the information you’ll ever need in order to successfully ruin the USA even further! Sardonic, humorous, but also angrily emphatic, this is a book every old-fashioned patriot really needs to read!

The authors frame an excellent narrative that highlights many of the absurdities occurring in the current American culture. The points are well made and this is a good read. One weakness is they did not support many of their arguments or declared facts with clear sources.

Stein and DeMuth hit it on the head with this book. Intelligence and candor abound. Ben's sarcasm also comes out at just the right junctures. A perfect combination.
