Lighten Up

An Honest Case for a Stronger America

Should the U.S. require military service? Should voting be mandatory? Should drugs be legalized?

In Lighten Up: An Honest Case for a Stronger America, Jess Coleman uncovers some of the most glaring moral, philosophical, and even mathematical inconsistencies that taint everyday American life. Through detailed analysis and innovative reflection, Coleman proposes sweeping changes to everything from our criminal justice system, to the Supreme Court, to the method by which we conduct elections.

In doing so, he makes a uplifting case for change, one that diverts from our usual course of stagnation and cynicism.
