Why Liberal Thinking Changed America: The Evolution of Justice in Our Nation’s History was written for two reasons. First, it was written to help give support and courage to those people with a liberal mind-set and to embolden them to step forward for a good cause, and to fight for justice, as our forefathers did. Second, it was written to summarize, for those who will listen, that it was the liberal-minded person who always took up the cause for justice. It is never an easy road to make major changes for the sake of justice in any country and most times there are very powerful conservative thinkers who will stand in the way of justice. How difficult is it to convince those who oppose such just movements to reverse themselves and support these just movements?
