    schema:description "In this new collection of thoughtful, hard-hitting essays, Walter E. Williams once again takes on the left wing's most sacred cows with provocative insights, brutal candor, and an uncompromising reverence for personal liberty and the principles laid out in our Declaration of Independence and Constitution. Nationally known as an amusing and radical crusader for liberty, Williams challenges the assumptions of contemporary liberalism with ruthless honesty, presenting an impressive array of powerful ideas and substantive information to frame his perspectives on the issues facing America in such critical areas as race, sex, government, law, education, the environment, and international relations. Most of human behavior, Williams maintains, cannot and should not be regulated by law. He passionately asserts that it is the informal codes of conduct and moral standards that provide the glue that holds society together. But when these codes and standards -- or traditional values -- are ignored, trivialized, or forgotten, we "take another step toward barbarism and incivility." Using the fundamentals of economics -- and basic common sense -- to provide his points, Williams offers wise, witty, and stimulating insights. - Back cover."@en ;
