Product Description

In <>Do As I Say (Not As I Do)<>, Peter Schweizer exposed the hypocrisy of liberal elites in Washington and Hollywood. In <>Makers and Takers<>, he broadens his scope to examine the damaging effects of liberal philosophy on ordinary Americans. Drawing on national polls and reputable academic studies, as well as the revealing testimony of liberals themselves, Schweizer shows that Liberals are, on the whole, less honest, less generous, lazier, and more materialistic than their conservative counterparts. Moreover, conservatives are better parents, spouses, and citizens.
Schweizer's portrait is not a mischievous exercise in "gotcha" journalism. Instead, tracing political and social changes over the past fifty years, he argues that the emergence of liberalism as a philosophy of selfishness is a direct result of big government. The enormous expansion of government has fostered the assumption among many Americans that the state is responsible for our financial, social, and moral well-being. From the myth that wealth is the result of luck and exploitation to the insistence that individuals are not accountable to God or social institutions, the principles of liberalism have corrupted the personal virtues and community values Americans once honored.

Publisher's Weekly

Schweizer (Do as I Say [Not as I Do]) expands his critique of modern American liberals to contend that “liberalism not only leads to social decay, but can also lead to personal decay.” Drawing upon polls and psychological studies, the author argues that “conservatives work harder, feel happier, have closer families, take fewer drugs, give more generously, value honesty more, are less materialistic and envious, whine less... and even hug their children more than liberals.” Schweizer is noticeably silent on current affairs; instead, he focuses on the culture wars of the 1990s, demonstrating how Clinton “lied... and did so in a fine fashion,” that Al Gore has also “told lies” and that the Clinton administration was “notable for its tolerant attitude toward drugs.” Schweizer refrains from making substantive commentary on the upcoming election; he spends more time attacking Garrison Keillor, for whom he reserves a special distaste. The readable prose and vigorous defense of Republican voters ensure that this book—despite its dated material and lack of analysis of the current campaign—will rally and rouse conservatives.
