    Mark Mullen s America We Have the Country We Want takes a common sense approach to social issues in the US The author takes a look at some of the shortcomings of corporate America, the issues in education, and other social issues The opinions and arguments set forth by Mullen support the conclusion that we have the country we want, and that we are comfortable with the status quo, no matter if certain familiarities are harmful and warrant changes The book really runs the gambit, covering Mark Mullen s America We Have the Country We Want takes a common sense approach to social issues in the US The author takes a look at some of the shortcomings of corporate America, the issues in education, and other social issues The opinions and arguments set forth by Mullen support the conclusion that we have the country we want, and that we are comfortable with the status quo, no matter if certain familiarities are harmful and warrant changes The book really runs the gambit, covering education, communities, churches, law enforcement, and the media One of my favorite sections is on the myths of education Despite the wide range of topics, the author covers them with reasoned and thought out arguments and case studies Mullen writes extremely well, informs readers with the most pertinent examples, and is refreshingly candid in his thoughtful analyses A good read if you like reading about social issues
