Judge Napolitano’s A Nation of Sheep repeatedly asks where the outrage is. Have we become so totally unaware of (or, even worse, indifferent to) the abuses perpetrated against our freedoms? In a couple of hundred pages, Napolitano highlights the major anti-liberty episodes throughout U.S. history but concentrates most of the book on post-9/11 events.
This is a page turner that often reads like part comedy, part tragedy. Judge Napolitano exhorts us to “reject the satanic bargain which the sheep have accepted that less freedom equals more safety.”
A Nation of Sheep is one of the books to recommend this year.
