Be the People by Carol M. Swain, PhD

Be the People by Carol M. Swain is an analysis of America’s morals and attempts to “reclaim America’s faith and promise.” If you are concerned with the direction that America is headed, this book assures you that you are not alone.

Book Description
An insightful analysis of the forces of deception rapidly reshaping America's morals, social policies, and culture, with a call to specific action, written by a thoughtful and courageous Christian social scientist on the front lines of today's issues.

Cultural elites in the media, academia, and politics are daily deceiving millions of Americans into passively supporting policies that are detrimental to the nation and their own best interest. Although some Americans can see through the smokescreen, they feel powerless to redirect the forces inside and outside government that radically threaten cherished values and principles.

Drawing on her training in political science and law, Dr. Swain thoughtfully examines the religious significance of the founding of our nation and the deceptions that have infiltrated our daily lives and now threaten traditional families, unborn children, and members of various racial and ethnic groups—as well as national sovereignty itself--and provides action points for the people of this country to make the political system more responsive.

The book is divided into two sections:

Forsaking what we once knew Re-embracing truth and justice in policy choices It also covers key topics such as:

America's shift to moral relativism America's religious roots Abortion's fragile facade Historical and biblical views on families and children Erosion of rule of law, national security, and immigration Racial and ethnic challenges Reclaiming the future.” – Be the People

My Thoughts
Be the People wasn’t written to be politically correct. Actually, it isn’t… at all. That is what I like about it. It may be an offensive book to some, but we do still have the freedom of speech and can say and write what we think.

The issues covered in this book range from racism, immigration, family matters and more. She is also quite critical of the Obama administration. I enjoyed reading that because I am quite anxious to see him voted out of office in the next election.

I didn’t personally agree with everything that Swain included in her book. I did however, think that on those issues that I disagreed with, she was able to articulate it well enough and include relevant information for me to want to continue to read why she believed what she does. Not many authors are able to accomplish that, but she did.

I don’t trust our current government, and I also believe that we are not being told highly important information that we should be told. I highly recommend this book for everyone to read and make their own decisions on important issues in our country.
