Restore Our Democracy: The Case for Equality and Justice by Werner Neff is an extremely important book. In five major parts, it covers everything a US citizen needs to know about American democracy, its crisis, and the way to repair it. Part 1 deals with basic concepts such as freedom, the republic, and democracy. Part 2 covers the constitution of the United States of America. Part 3 enumerates the democratic principles of true democracy, such as voting rights and ethical elections, and some of the unethical practices such as gerrymandering and voter suppression. Part 4 goes into current political issues such as obstruction of justice, mass shootings, drugs, healthcare, and tax avoidance. Part 5 deals with the question of how to strengthen democracy.
Restore Our Democracy is concise, thorough, and comprehensive in dealing with all the essential elements of democracy without burdening the reader with details of secondary importance. If the reader has an honest desire to understand what is wrong with their country and find out what needs to be done to turn things around, this is the book they should start with. Werner Neff's language is easy to follow, straight to the point, counting on the reader’s own experience with recent events as they were reported daily in the news. It challenges us to face reality, not as it is muddied by inaccurate and confusing reporting by the mainstream media, or, even worse, the hysteria of social media-based conspiracy theories, but solid facts and their logical analysis. I highly recommend Restore Our Democracy to anyone who wishes to understand the actual reality they live in and wants to do the right thing as a responsible citizen.
