Current read: FDR’s Second Bill of Rights

I return to FDR’s State of the Union Address from 1944 whenever I’m at my political wit’s end. When I start to believe that there is no altruism or hope or foresight to be found in those that lead, his speech reminds me that there have been great men and women of public office. The Second Bill of Rights: FDR’S Unfinished Revolution and Why We Need It More than Ever is a legal and economic study of FDR’s refutement of laissez-faire economics as well as researching why FDR’s constitutional vision was never fully enacted. This continues my FDR and Eleanor obsession that I started with Champion of Freedom.
