Government Ruins Nearly Everything: Reclaiming Social Issues from Uncivil Servants Paperback – March 23, 2016
"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete?

About the Author
Laura Carno is a Colorado citizen who understands that politicians are not kings, endowed with some birthright to parcel out our freedoms in tiny doses as they see fit. She knows it’s not the job of hired civil servants to tell us what size soda to drink, which light bulbs to buy, or what kind of insurance our family needs. She believes instead that we’re all adults who don’t need to be told how to live, but who instead need to stand their ground when government gets the relationship with its citizens upside down. When elected officials forget whose money they are spending and whose rights they are eroding, when they forget who’s the boss and who’s the public servant—then it’s up to citizens to speak out and reset the balance. Find her speaking out against the “Mother, May I?” culture, one issue at a time, at www.lauracarno.com and @LauraCarno.

It's hard to imagine a world where can all have different beliefs and values but yet all happily and peaceful coexist. But Ms Carno does make this world seem possible.
I hope she is right, but also realize it is all our own individual responsibility to make it happen.
Very inspiring and worthwhile read.
She makes a powerful case for the free-market cure to a government sick country!
It is a quick but AMAZING read!
