Mark Levin, who is a former Reagan administration official, conservative activist, constitutional scholar, and radio talk show host, has authored an important work in Plunder and Deceit: Big Government’s Exploitation of Young People and the Future.
The book, which debuted at #1 on The New York Times bestseller list, is relatively short but dense with mind-boggling facts, sound arguments, and thoroughly thought-provoking material. Here is a sampling of what you can expect in this new book that exposes the Ruling Generation’s abuse of millennials and the Rising Generation.
The top eleven quotes from Plunder and Deceit in 140 characters or less:
#11. The opening question.
Can we simultaneously love our children but betray their generation and generations yet born?
#10. Purpose of public policy.
The well-being of America’s young people through the restoration of founding principles should be the primary objective of public policy.
#9. America and the civil society.
Ultimately a vigorous civil society and a well-functioning republic are only possible if the people are virtuous and will them.
#8. On minimum wage laws.
Any mandate from the government that employers pay an established wage reduces opportunities for America’s youth to obtain entry-level jobs.
#7. On the welfare state.
The erosion of individual society, free will, and self-sufficiency give way to dependance, conformity, and finally tyranny.
#6. On government-run education.
Students are not lab rats to be subjected to endless educational experiments…to be conditioned as societal malcontents…
#5. Modern government in America.
The consolidation of power, a mortal threat to the individual and liberty, is now the primary object of government.
#4. Notions of government.
The notion that government dispenses rights, rather than erodes and threatens them, has become an article of faith.
#3. The ruling generation’s failure.
Why do so many parents abandon the civil society for a voracious central government that steals their children’s future?
#2. On the Constitution.
The Constitution provides the governing order of a republic intended to protect the individual’s liberty from a centralized authority…
#1. A call to action.
It is time that young people muster the courage to defend themselves from big government’s reckless designs.
