Mormonism has never abandoned its secrecy and its enmity to America.

There seem to be more answers than problems bobbing about on the sea of humanity. Layman’s License poses a few more answers as well as a few more questions. This book is a little bit about a lot!

Both drug-taking and drug-control can be done to excess, and "Against Excess" shows how we can limit the damage done by both errors. It argues we need a middle ground: "grudging toleration" -- neither prohibition nor full legal availability.
