You - The Greatest Good: An exploration of History, Morality, and Authority

J. A. Mitchell

Beneath the surface of modern governance lies a hidden tug of war, silently shaping the fabric of law and politics in liberal democracies. This book uncovers and explores the two enduring sets of ideas behind this conflict - natural law and utilitarianism.

From the world's largest hydroelectric facility to vaccine mandates and government tax-and-spend policies, You: The Greatest Good explores and reveals the diverse moral roots that have laid the groundwork and influenced the current direction of Western nations in the 21st century.

Examine the history, great minds, arguments, and applications of these two giants of moral philosophy and see how natural law is - now more than ever - in need of a resurgence. This is not a call to selfishness. Instead, this book simply aims to demonstrate that everyone should be treated as their own end rather than just another cog in the machine.
