"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
I grew up with 2 brothers and one sister and my mother and father did not go to college. From an early age I always did not like people sugarcoating things when they gave me an answer. It got me in trouble sometimes but I was always content with who I was. I was always very stubborn and strong willed. I was not my mothers or fathers picked in the family. My mom was more bias to my older and younger brother, while my father showed partiality to my sister. I was the second child born to the family, and my father’s first born. Early on it bothered me that I was not one of the favorites but it made me the person that I am today. I don’t mind standing along on issues, and I don’t mind speaking my mind when I feel that I am absolutely right. I like to get along with people but not at the expense of compromising my core beliefs. I liked to think that those core beliefs are grounded and rooted in truth. This is something that is challenged regularly if you are married. You must learn to have a balance which I am still learning after 17 years of marriage. When I first met my wife I knew that she was a strong willed person. She has made me more stubborn with that strong will that she has. We have 3 kids Ariah, Josiah, and Isaiah who have taught me patience.

Mr Elmer Thomas Williams Jr. has more Common Sense than anyone
that I know.
After reading the book , Mr. Williams and a few of my friends think
very much alike. I only wish that I were able to express myself as
elegantly as Elmer has. Mr. Williams has been able to bring out each
point that he wants to highlight, by portraying each one into a little
life setting scenario.
Everyone can relate to most of his stories that he uses to drive each
of his points home.
If the United States were composed of 100% citizens of Mr. Elmer
Thomas Williams Jr. caliber, we would have a nation our forefathers
dreamed the United States to become.
Mr. Williams approach to have every American citizen responsible
for their own actions and welfare, is the way my parents brought me
up in the 1940's. With personal responsibility on everyone's shoulders
we all become contributors to this great nation of ours.
