"A Government of Wolves"

A Government of Wolves
From: NextNewsNetwork

The size of government has grown extensively over the last 100 years. This is especially true during the last 20 years. A political system once designed for the ordinary person has become intrusive and warlike, according to many critics.

Classified documents released by Julian Assange, Private Manning and Edward Snowden reveal a far different government than many Americans believed. Widespread spying on Americans and foreign leaders and citizens angered people of all political persuasions.

Government waste has always been a problem. However, revelations of warehouses of brand-new aircraft being scrapped, and other evidence of wholesale waste have created new opposition to spending.

A national mandate to buy health insurance has lost the support of a majority of young people. The President led youth -- and their premiums -- to support his law. He now appears to be losing both.

John Whitehead is a historian and author who has extensively studied American history. His latest book, "A Government of Wolves," discusses how the government has grown. In this work, Whitehead talks about the rise of government power and intrusiveness.

Whitehead is our guest on the show today.
