What I'm reading-

Right now it is The Liberal Mind, The Psychological Causes of Political Madness and what an interesting book it is. I'm just 5 chapters in but already my head is swimming with concepts to ponder and ideas that make me nod my head in agreement. Lyle Rossiter Jr, M.D. has really put some thought and insight into this book and it explains so much about what is wrong with our society and government.
One quote from Chapter 4:
The adult citizen's dependent attachment to government comes at an enormous price: the constant growth of the politician's power to gratisfy his constituents is paralled by a constant growth in his power to dominate them.

So this book is pretty thought provoking. It's not an easy read because it takes time (for me) to grasp everything the good doctor is trying to impart.
Highly recommended by me.
