Replacing The Failed Ideologies Of Right And Left

Book Cover: Try Common Sense
Book Cover: Try Common Sense

In "Try Common Sense: Replacing the Failed Ideologies of Right and Left ," Philip K. Howard attacks the failed ideologies of both political parties and proposes a radical simplification of government to re-empower Americans in their daily choices. Nothing will make sense until people are free to roll up their sleeves and make things work.

Americans are a practical people. They want government to be practical. Washington can’t do anything practically. Worse, its bureaucracy prevents Americans from doing what’s sensible. Conservative bluster won’t fix this problem. Liberal hand-wringing won’t work either. Frustrated voters reach for extremist leaders, but they too get bogged down in the bureaucracy that has accumulated over the past century.
