Breakout: pioneers of the future, prison guards of the past, and the epic battle that will decide America's fate
It is not between the Left and the Right, but between the past and the future.
America is on the edge of a breakout. In fact, we are poised for one of the most spectacular leaps in human well-being in history. Pioneers of the future--innovators and entrepreneurs--are achieving breakthroughs in medicine, transportation, energy, education, and other fields that will make the world a dramatically different and better place.
Unless the "prison guards" of the past stop them. Every American must choose a side. Will you be a champion of the future or a prisoner of the past?
Every potential breakthrough has to get past a host of individuals and institutions whose power and comfort depend on the status quo. These prison guards of the past will strangle every innovation that threatens to change the way things have always been done--if we let them.
In Breakout you'll learn:Why environmental extremists cling to the myth of "peak oil," and how the fracking revolution is about to make America the world's leading oil producer How personalized healthcare--radically individualized treatments made possible by advances in genetics--and regenerative medicine could wipe out our most feared diseases, and why they're on a collision course with Obamacare How self-driving cars are on the verge of making traffic jams--and traffic deaths--a thing of the past, unless regulators wreck them before they leave the lot Why a one-size-fits-all education will become a historical curiosity, unless the teachers' unions and professional academicians succeed in preserving the current dysfunctional systems How NASA--once the repository of American dreams of the future--became a textbook case of death by bureaucracy Americans don't have to settle for a shrunken future. We can escape from the prison of the past into a future of undreamed of opportunity and abundance. All we need is the courage to break out.

Our biggest enemy? Special interest groups, powerful lobbyists, and government bureaucrats who are determined to squash, control, or prevent these innovations--and permanently change the future of America.|
