Be the People by Dr. Carol Swain

I received this book via Booksneeze and I am so delighted I chose it to review. One of the best, concise, and easily read tomes I've discovered which pulls back the wool that has been pulled over The People's eyes.

Dr. Swain is an unusual, but not so very rare, Black Conservative. She makes a lot of sense and I would love to take one of her classes. I love it that she's reprinted the Constitution at the back along with some other documents our founding fathers composed so that blind eyes may, perhaps be opened. I pray The People of America will one day not settled for interpretations of what someone has said, but truly dissect and discern direct quotes and speeches for themselves.

It is incredibly sad how so many are blindly following a color in this country which has nothing to do with skin color but has everything to do with party colors. If we do not pay attention to what the Executive Branch, Legislative Branch and Judicial Branch are doing, we will have put ourselves under the thumb of a dictator rather than the Republic we actually are.

I give it 5 out of 5 stars

Book Description

An insightful analysis of the forces of deception rapidly reshaping America's morals, social policies, and culture, with a call to specific action, written by a thoughtful and courageous Christian social scientist on the front lines of today's issues.

Cultural elites in the media, academia, and politics are daily deceiving millions of Americans into passively supporting policies that are detrimental to the nation and their own best interest. Although some Americans can see through the smokescreen, they feel powerless to redirect the forces inside and outside government that radically threaten cherished values and principles.

Drawing on her training in political science and law, Dr. Swain thoughtfully examines the religious significance of the founding of our nation and the deceptions that have infiltrated our daily lives and now threaten traditional families, unborn children, and members of various racial and ethnic groups—as well as national sovereignty itself--and provides action points for the people of this country to make the political system more responsive.

The book is divided into two sections:

Forsaking what we once knew Re-embracing truth and justice in policy choices It also covers key topics such as:
  • America's shift to moral relativism 
  • America's religious roots 
  • Abortion's fragile facade 
  • Historical and biblical views on families and children 
  • Erosion of rule of law, national security, and immigration 
  • Racial and ethnic challenges 
  • Reclaiming the future
