Return to Book Page. Preview — Makers and Takers by Peter Schweizer. Fifty-five percent of conservatives said yes versus only 20 percent of liberals. The American left prides itself on being superior to conservatives: more generous, less materialistic, more tolerant, more intellectual, and more selfless.

For years scholars have constructed—and the media has pushed—elaborate theories designed to demonstrate that conservatives suffer from a host of personality defects and character flaws. According to these supposedly unbiased studies, conservatives are mean-spirited, greedy, selfish malcontents with authoritarian tendencies.

Far from the belief of a few cranks, prominent liberals from John Kenneth Galbraith to Hillary Clinton have succumbed to these prejudices. But what do the facts show? Peter Schweizer has dug deep—through tax documents, scholarly data, primary opinion research surveys, and private records—and has discovered that these claims are a myth. Indeed, he shows that many of these claims actually apply more to liberals than conservatives.

Much as he did in his bestseller Do as I Say Not as I Do , he brings to light never-before-revealed facts that will upset conventional wisdom. Conservatives such as Ronald Reagan and Robert Bork have long argued that liberal policies promote social decay.

The review challenged my social-moderate-with-liberal-leanings views and made me think it would be good for me to read this book, even if it might not be enjoyable to have liberal views laid bare in the same way that conservative views often are.

Well, I was right about not enjoying it, but it wasn't because the liberal views were taken to task In the process, his points which are actualy good ones are often obscured and you end up just being annoyed with his method of communicating.

I ended up learning more from the chapter titles than from the chapters themselves, and I think the book would have been better if it had: a been shorter, perhaps even essay-length, going straight to the author's very valid points; and b included fewer stories and more solid, better organized research, statistical and otherwise. Unfortunately, the way it is written rather works against the author's points, making the right-wing social conservative author and, by extension, his intellectual colleagues look like unreasonable, mean-spirited complainers.

Mar 20, David rated it really liked it. In Makers and Takers: How Conservatives Do All the Work While Liberals Whine and Complain the author, Peter Schweizer, contrasts what the left spouts confidently as factual with more scientific survey-based truth and blasts what liberals hope what they want the general public to accept as true.

This was the tactic used by Hitler and the National Socialists Nazis used, to paraphrase: Make the lie big, make it simple, keep saying it, and eventually they will believe it! This is so obvious when y In Makers and Takers: How Conservatives Do All the Work While Liberals Whine and Complain the author, Peter Schweizer, contrasts what the left spouts confidently as factual with more scientific survey-based truth and blasts what liberals hope what they want the general public to accept as true.

This is so obvious when you take a skeptical look at what is being claimed as fact. The author points out that in many of these cases those putting out false accusation as facts are essentially doing what they claim the targets of their propaganda are doing. Their philosophy can be summed up as Do as I say, not as I do. Examples are plentiful and are presented by the author throughout the book. He draws on national polls and academic studies, along with actual testimony by liberals themselves.

He also states that the emergence of this type of liberalism as a philosophy of selfishness is a direct result of big government. Apr 08, Brendan Steinhauser rated it it was amazing. This is an excellent book that destroys certain liberal myths about conservatives. The book cites studies that show conservatives to be more hard working, happier, more family oriented, less materialistic, more honest and more generous than liberals.

This book is well worth a read. View 1 comment. Jan 11, Douglas Wilson rated it really liked it Shelves: culture-studies.

The thesis of this book -- that conservatives are far more generous in their personal lives than liberals -- is in equal measure both surprising and predictable. Schweizer thesis is pretty straight forward, Conservatives aren't what people think they are, and when I say people I mean gentlemen like George Lakoff who seem to think that if you don't believe in a broken welfare state or handouts for everyone then your a heartless moron who doesn't know how to think.

Although I appreciate the view of Lakoff that I'm a moron and heartless, Schweizer gets it right through statistics and anecdotes on the realities of conservatives versus liberals. No surprises Schweizer thesis is pretty straight forward, Conservatives aren't what people think they are, and when I say people I mean gentlemen like George Lakoff who seem to think that if you don't believe in a broken welfare state or handouts for everyone then your a heartless moron who doesn't know how to think.

No surprises for me is that people who self-identify as conservative value honesty more then liberals, since liberalism puts a greater emphasis on the ends justify the means insofar as liberals consider liberal policies good for everyone and one may argue regardless of outcome. Schweizer is probably preaching to the converted in his book, and for people like me who are tired of hearing how stupid they are btw, I have multiple degrees , or how heartless they are as a humble man I don't talk about my charitable giving , this book can be a breath of fresh air in an often contentious environment filled with the uninformed and self-righteous individuals who want to tell you how the world works.

Feb 18, Rhonda rated it liked it Shelves: read-in Author explains the differences between liberals and conservatives. To quote the author in his conclusion: "I began this book with two simple assumptions: first, that ideas influence our behavior; and second, that modern liberals and conservatives have distinctly different behavioral patterns reflecting their different philosophies.
