After writing books on personal wealth Kruger discovered that there are two sets of answers to the problem of poverty. Douglas became fascinated by the idea of how families and individuals can escape inter-generational cycles of poverty. He found that, on the one hand, folks are served a set of politically correct ideas about what might work; then, on the other side of the spectrum, there are the things that are economically sound that actually work but are harder to hear.
He became quite attuned to these differences between what he calls “political correctness versus the truth.” This is the heart and soul of his new book.
Kruger commented: ‘Political correctness is Marxism by stealth. Yet most people think it’s about kindness, and make no mistake, politicians are happy to sell it that way. Starting now, we’re going to pull back the curtain and reveal the truth. It’s time for the world’s most important philosophical street-fight. You can have political correctness, or you can have the truth, but you can’t have both.”
