This is the New York Times bestseller which takes an eye opening look at how governmental rules and regulations are fettering the lives of all Americans. In segments like "How Law Replaced Humanity," "The Unfairness of Uniformity," and "Remembering Rationalism", the author explains how law is suffocating America.

From the Inside Flap:

disturbing, devastatingly detailed--this stunning examination of how modern laws are diminishing America exposes the drawbacks of rule-bound government, tells why nothing gets done, reveals the phony pretensions of law, and shows why well-intentioned laws have actually devalued rights. In short, The Death of Common Sense demonstrates how the buck never stops and how ell-meaning laws are creating a nation of enemies. (Poltics/Current Events)
