I disagree with some of his points. But listening to the reviews against him. They're condescending, they're insulting, they're telling him that he should keep his mouth shut, that he should remember his place, that he shouldn't forget about the education that he was given. This man, his story, is one of hard work. His contribution to medicine is legendary. This man was not given anything. And even if you disagree with his political views, that doesn't diminish the man nor his contributions to society.
But this is a book review and this is a 5 star book.
Let me make this clear, I don't agree with everything that he writes. I'm pro obamacare though I think it could be done better and I don't believe doing nothing is a proper structure either. If he has a new plan, I'd love for him to go into it in more depth, and I'd be happy to consider his solution.
Political Correctness he nails completely. I don't want to be tolerated. I don't mind being insulted. You have the right to be offended in this country, it's not a right to never be offended. Our colleges have it wrong, they're silencing free thought, hindering the growth of minds to think outside the box, to ask controversial questions, to engage in conversation with people they disagree with. This is why everyone we have discussions with now a days with disparate views becomes a yelling match.
This book supports itself with a strong structure of common sense, basic morality, and a willingness to compromise and listen to opposing views. Those who write negative reviews, should be more respectful of the nature of the book, instead of proving his point that we are incapable of holding opposing views in our minds.
In February of 2013, he gave a speech at the National Prayer Breakfast. With President Obama nearby, Dr. Carson criticized the direction the country has taken, indirectly criticizing the President's domestic policies. With this book he hones in in his observations and follows through exposing the ills afflicting American society, deteriorating moral values, political correctness, and the government attempts to take over the health care system.
As a result, Dr. Ben Carson was singled out for IRS auditing (harassment) by the Obama administration last fall. He came out clean! Dr. Carson had criticized ObamaCare in October of 2013, while speaking in Washington, D.C., stating that ObamaCare "was about control," and went on to quote the Russian communist founder of the Soviet Union, Vladimir Lenin, who admitted, "Socialized medicine is the keystone to the establishment of a socialist state."
For Dr. Carson this passionate, informative and excellent book was necessary: "the future of my grandchildren is in jeopardy because of reckless spending, godless government, and mean-spirited attempts to silence critics left me no choice but to write this book." I agree. And he has done a great job putting his thoughts and ideas into words that every American can read and understand.
In this latest book, "One Nation: What We Can All Do to Save America's Future," (2014), co-authored with his wife, Candy -- Dr. Carson makes novel but common sense proposals to get us out of the morass in which we are mired. It does not matter whether one is a Democrat or Republican; we are all Americans and must get together to solve our problems and preserve our American Republic! His book is written well with passion, conviction, and statesmanship. Let me state for the record that I have known of Dr. Carson's great surgical achievements as they developed, but have never had the pleasure of meeting him. Hopefully, one day I will. In the meantime get to know him and his plans to save America by getting his book and reading it!
