While speaking to this week's featured guest on The RJ Moeller Show, Dr. Charles Murray, R.J. said he felt like Wayne and Garth bumping into Alice Cooper backstage: "I wasn't worthy!"
Charles Murray has been one of the preeminent thinkers in the country for three decades. He is a political scientist, author, and renowned libertarian. He first came to national attention in 1984 with the publication of Losing Ground, which has been credited as the intellectual foundation for the Welfare Reform Act of 1996. His 1994 New York Times bestseller, The Bell Curve, sparked heated controversy for its analysis of the role of IQ in shaping America’s class structure.
His most recent book, Coming Apart, describes an unprecedented divergence in American classes over the last half century. It is a fascinating read, and a powerful assessment of our society, culture, and class-structure.
