It Is Dangerous to Be Right When the Government is Wrong

I recieved the Kindle version of It is Dangerous to Be Right When the Government is Wrong - The Case for Personal Freedom by Andrew Napolitano from Booksneeze for an honest review. Judge Andrew P. Napolitano examines the concept the government hates and fears the most: Freedom. The United States of America was born out of a bloody revolt against tyranny. Yet almost from its inception, the government here has suppressed liberty. In his sixth book on the Constitution and human freedom, Judge Andrew P. Napolitano asks: Where does freedom come from? How can government in America exercise power that the people have not given to it? What forces have collaborated to destroy personal freedom?

In this back-to-basics on freedom, Judge Napolitano addresses hard questions:

Do we still have a Constitution?

What are the limits to government power in a free society?

Why does the government attack, rather than defend, our rights?

If our rights are inalienable, how can the government take them away?

Do we really own private property?

I picked this book because I don't consider myself to be very knowledgable when it comes to the government. I had not heard of Judge Andrew Napolitano before. He is very knowledgeable about the government and how they are trying to steal our personal freedoms without us even realizing the extent of it.

I didn't enjoy this book. Napolitano writes in a way that I don't enjoy reading. The book is full of very useful information but is a dry read.
