Description: New York Timesbestselling journalist John Stossel shows how the expansion of government control is destructive for American society.The government is not a neutral arbiter of truth. It never has been, and it never will be. Doubt everything. John Stossel does. A self-described skeptic, Stossel debunks the idea that our government can solve our problems. He insists that we discard that idea of the “perfect” government—left or right—and retrain our brain to look only at the facts, to rethink our lives as independent individuals—and fast.With characteristic tenacity, John Stossel outlines and exposes the fallacies and facts of the most pressing issues of today’s social and political climate—and shows how our intuitions about them are, frankly, wrong. Topics include: the unreliable marriage between big business, the media, and unions; the myth of tax breaks and the ignorance of their advocates; federal regulations and the trouble they create for consumers; the problems (social and economic) generated by minimum-wage laws; the destructive daydreams of “health insurance for everyone”; the dumbing down of public education and teachers’ unions; how gun control actually increases crime—and more myth-busting realities of why the American people must wrest our lives back from a government stranglehold. As Stossel says, “It’s not about electing the right people. It’s about narrowing responsibilities.”No, They Can’tis an irrefutable first step toward that goal.
