9781595230171: Do-Gooders: How Liberals Hurt Those They Claim to Help (and the Rest ofUs)

The New York Times bestseller about the harm that liberal do-gooders have wrought on those they’ve tried for decades to help

Liberals from Capitol Hill to Hollywood, from our major news organizations to our leading universities, are convinced that they know what’s best for America’s poor and middle class. And they are equally convinced that anyone who disagrees with them isn’t just wrong, but morally inferior, cold hearted . . . maybe even evil.

But consider the mess liberals have made of education, race relations, crime, welfare, homelessness, and just about every other domestic issue over the past four decades. It’s a wonder they’re still so smug and self-righteous.

Bestselling author and columnist Mona Charen now offers a comprehensive look at the damage caused by decades of well-intentioned liberal "big-heartedness." She shines the spotlight of truth on the nation’s best-known—and most dangerous—do-gooders, including Michael Moore, Susan Sarandon, Jesse Jackson, Al Franken, Maureen Dowd, Bill Moyers, Dan Rather, Katie Couric, Gloria Steinem, and Hillary Clinton.

Mona Charen holds the do-gooders accountable for their bad ideas, and refuses to let them hide from the real world facts that disprove their naïve theories.

From the Back Cover:

"Charen’s new book . . . comes at the perfect time. . . . Her book is not only an easy read, but her wit and humor make it truly enjoyable."
—Betsy Hart, Chicago Sun-Times

"The indispensable Mona Charen devotes her new book . . . to depicting the severe price that America has paid for past acts of ill-considered liberal beneficence. The array of facts Charen assembles, from crime to welfare to education, is daunting and definitive. . . . To read this excellent book is to receive a keen insight into why America has moved so far in the conservative direction in recent years."
—National Review

"Following up on her bestselling Useful Idiots, Charen seeks to debunk liberal discourse and unearth the facts that never make the New York Times."
—Christopher Benson, The Weekly Standard

"Anyone who does not understand the utter cynicism of politics does not understand politics. An education on that subject can be found in Mona Charen’s incisive new book, Do- Gooders."
—Thomas Sowell, Capitalism Magazine

"Do-Gooders abounds in powerful data."
—Front Page Magazine
