Uncommon Sense

by Daisy Drews

Book Image Not Available Book Image Not Available
Uncommon Sense looks at a range of issues that the United States faces today: gun legislation, abortion, unequal distribution of wealth, the dominance of the military/industrial complex, redistricting, corruption in government, etc. It offers sensible solutions to these problems.
Uncommon Sense uses our fundamental beliefs in democracy to attempt to get us back on track toward a fair society for all. Many of the problems we face have sensible solutions but people in power thwart such in order to make or receive money. When people feel economically insecure, they become angry and want to blame someone. So we have to address the incredible wealth discrepancy that has developed. We need a more fair tax system. We need fair representation. The Constitution was provided as a guideline for organization. But times have changed enormously. Uncommon Sense was written to get people to think about the issues and provides some practical ways to solve some of our problems. Clearly, in such a diverse society, it would be difficult to get total agreement on many of the issues but the government can and should keep decision making to protecting the security of all individuals as much as possible.
