Our government plays a vital role in our lives, for better or for worse
Bloomington, IN (Vocus) July 23, 2010
Xlibris, the print-on-demand self-publishing services provider, announced today the release of The Government is not Your Daddy: A Student's Guide to a Better America Part I, an eye-opening read about personal responsibility by authors Steven Rotter M.D. & Bradley Rotter. This book for students is co-authored by a student.
Personal responsibility is not as revered today as it once was. In fact, today, many Americans blame the government for not finding them a job, for not paying for their medical care, and for not sending them to college. Today’s American is a radically different American from the one that watched a man land on the moon in 1969.
Written primarily for students in high school and college, The Government is not Your Daddy: A Student's Guide to a Better America Part I is meant as a primer on what one will face as an American moving out into the “real world” beyond days in school. It discusses larger issues that are not usually taught in schools: the real definition of citizenship, philosophy of the government, the country as it stands now, progressive movements, health care, threats to the government in the forms of unions, and more. Ultimately, this book calls the youth to learn, to work hard, to take control of one’s life, to pay attention to what’s going on, and to take responsibility for one’s own actions.
While this book focuses on the many injustices and faults currently present in the economy, it is also a hopeful look of what could be if the individuals in the country were allowed to flourish. “Our government plays a vital role in our lives, for better or for worse,” the author states. “If it were operated as intended by our founding fathers, we could once again enjoy the benefits of a truly free society. We believe we can once again become that America.”
