This Little Opinion Plus $1.50 Will Buy You a Coke: A Collection of Essays

134In these sixty-five essays, political science professor emeritus Dr. Douglas Young examines a tremendous variety of American and global political issues and leaders. Whether making his case for or against particular public policies or scrutinizing major politicians, Dr. Young offers an independent perspective colored by Judeo-Christian conservatarian (conservative and libertarian) principles. Many major American political issues are explored in this collection, including abortion, Afghanistan, AIDS, alcohol, China, Confederate monuments, feminism, gun control, healthcare, marijuana, mass shootings, political polarization, presidential politics, press (mis)conduct, religion, secularism, and US foreign policies. Also studied in this volume is a diverse cast of public figures, including Abraham Lincoln, James Longstreet, John Kennedy, Ernesto "Che" Guevara, Richard Nixon, Jimmy Carter, Jesse Helms, Clarence Thomas, George Bush I, Earvin "Magic" Johnson, Bill Clinton, Pat Robertson, Jesse Jackson, Donald Trump, Ron DeSantis, Tucker Carlson, Prince Harry, and Meghan Markle. Informed by a lifetime of intensive political study, wit, and a penchant for being eloquently blunt, Professor Young finally answers the question he so often got from students but declined to address while teaching for over a third of a century: "But what do you think, Dr. Young?" Now you will know.
