Charles Murray is no stranger to controversy and, piggybacking on a similar theme from a recent episode of this program, was castigated in the media for his findings in his hugely influential book, The Bell Curve, published back in 1994.

His newest work, By the People, is no less important and incredibly timely in its focus on the American political system.

Highlighting how we can use the leviathan nature of government against itself and, interestingly, by taking the approach of the Church of Scientology of using the courts against those that threaten liberty, Murray outlines a way to take the nation back to its founding principles. Also fascinating is his fresh look at how increases in immigration can also return us to those values of liberty. They appeal to new Americans, even if they’ve been lost on those here for generations.
