Andy Andrews believes that good answers come from asking good questions. Through the powerful, provocative question, “How do you kill eleven million people?”—the number of people killed by the Nazi German regime between 1933 and 1945—he explores a number of other questions relevant to our lives today: Does it matter that millions of Americans have checked out of participating in the decisions that shape the future of the United States? What is more dangerous: politicians with ill intent, or the too-trusting population that allows such people to lead them?
How are we supposed to tell the difference between the “good guys” and the “bad guys”? How do truth and lies in the past affect our destiny as a nation? What happens to a society in which truth is absent? Andrews issues a wake-up call to voters across the political spectrum: become informed, passionate citizens who demand honesty and integrity from our leaders, or suffer the consequences of our own ignorance and apathy. Furthermore, we can no longer measure a leader’s worth by the yardsticks provided by the left or the right. Instead, we must use an unchanging standard: the pure, unvarnished truth.
