This book explores the decline in public trust in government, and the efforts of the public to use the powers of democratic governing to improve the lives of people—especially people who require such government intervention.

It focuses on the debate over government size and the role of the public sector, with a look at the implications of unqualified disdain for politics, institutions, public servants, elected officials, and the very process of democracy itself. A look at the key and current issues helps expose the anti-democratic sentiments that underlie much conservative criticism of government size.

For individuals who want to make their lives more rewarding, productive, and just—through the use of the tools of governing in democratically organized societies.
