In Harold Wright’s most recent book, he challenges the foundation of the United States Government, its leaders, and the systemic injustices within a country he fought to defend wearing the uniform of a US Marine. By highlighting the wrongdoings of the past, there is a chance for a brighter future, but only if we are critical of the advantages handed to white America. Freedom is more arbitrary than most Americans are led to believe, and Wright breaks down the misleading term and how it is loosely applied to our way of life. With examples of mistakes made by all former presidents, he calls for his fellow countrymen to pay attention to the corruption rooted deep in scandal. Staying informed and aware of our country’s problems is how we navigate towards improvement.
