Synopsis: If you could change the world, what would you do? This is the question answered in "My Druthers" by Art Rude, an independent non-partisan writer, teacher, entertainer, parent, and farmer. Active in reform politics, writing articles, writing and performing original songs, the author worked for the Democratic party, but withdrew to attempt to reform the political process.

On the occasion of his 55th birthday, the author resolved to put together the "perfect" plan for changing the world from his point of view, hence "The Druthers". Starting with 13 original "druthers", in the course of two years of writing the book, the list expanded to 21 "druthers". This book is an attempt to appeal to the idealism within the reader, and cause the reader to think about how he or she would change the world. Much has been said recently about change, but the politicians talking about change do not really change the system itself, and amount to "same old, same old" in spite of the rhetoric. This book challenges many of the assumptions of average Americans, pointing to possible changes in the system, the failure of the two party system, changes in attitudes, the effects of raising children in a fast changing society, and how we as citizens can make a difference.

The book is diverse, dealing with reforming American government, changing attitudes as society changes, hypocrisy in religion, and definitions of personal success and happiness. Not only are there "druthers" of how the world should be, there are specific suggestions of how to achieve the "druthers" in the real world. Background varies from discussing how the brain learns and how the brain actually works, to the misconceptions of the effects of capitalism and free enterprise. The author is intent on challenging many of the assumptions of modern society, so readers can re-evaluate their involvement, their ideals, and choose a course of action that renews their personal idealism, and encourages the reader to develop and seek their own "druthers".
