founding of America, many people, even several of the Founding Fathers, were very doubtful that a democratic form of government could survive Such a form had rarely existed and in the few instances where it had, with the exception of a very limited number of extremely small countries, it had collapsed into anarchy The ordinary people of those democracies lost the ability to control themselves, to see where their rights ended and their neighbors rights began They succumbed to the powerful, basic passions of wanting things their way with callous disregard for the rights of others Invariably this necessitated the emergence of a dictator to restore order The chaotic the society, the brutal the means employed by the dictator to suppress the anarchy.But there was something extraordinary about America It was a harsh, untamed frontier that required of its inhabitants cooperation and hard work for survival, but importantly the early settlers brought with them a radical new view of human nature Like so many of that era they were driven by the belief that humanity had a destiny to lead a moral life, but unlike most, they proclaimed that the ordinary people, without the aid of ritual or relics or a prince or a priesthood class, could ascertain for themselves the path to a moral life They asserted that this could be achieved, not only by their own reading and interpreting of the bible, but also by leading a life in which they fully developed their abilities and used those abilities to improve both the spiritual and material welfare of society This required individuals to work hard, control their passions, and allocate time to helping others They were an educated, literate, ethical people in a state of personal self governance and they translated this personal attribute into a society of self governance, thus making democratic America, against all odds, a resounding success But it is this very success and the world s emulation of it that has caused many, particularly the intellectuals, in modern secular America to view democracy as the natural state of our species, a state to which all societies will eventually, spontaneously progress Hence, these people disparage America as being nothing extraordinary in human history, just an accident in time that any country given the right physical environment could have accomplished They spout the belief that the desire to be free to control one s destiny, that enlightened self interest, is sufficient to provoke people to make the sacrifices necessary to maintain a democracy Nothing could be further from the truth It is pursuit of freedom and self interest that motivates the tyrant to exterminate all those who oppose him It is pursuit of freedom and self interest that motivates the criminal to kill and steal For our democracy to survive, a majority of the ordinary people must feel and act upon the belief that was held by the early settlers of America that is that humanity has a noble purpose than mere self gratification They must believe that humankind has a moral destiny to develop their abilities not only for the betterment of the individual, but also, for the alleviation of human misery throughout society They must accept that this requires not only compassion, but hard work and self discipline Although we should recognize that religion has been important in promoting these desirable qualities, America is a secular, pluralistic society that cannot, and should not, return to being principally dependent upon religion to achieve these ends It needs to buttress the promotion of these qualities through government programs that, not only help the needy, but hold people accountable to one another and through civic organizations that encourage people to work together for the common good Lastly, for America s democracy to survive, we must appreciate how antithetical hard work, self discipline, and compassion are to the much stronger instincts of pursuit of power and pleasure and because of this how extraordinary and tenuous America s existence is In this book, practical policies promoting these objectives in seventeen areas of American life are presented Get A Copy Kindle Store

trumpet it but if you don t believe in them, you will likely lamblast it.I won t say they are all bad ideas, but I definitely think there s a lot wrong with her ideas And as she tries to say near the end that we could be moving closer towards a 1984 Orwellian future her book if followed to the letter would lead us there even quicker Firstly, I think her views on evolution and males and females is horribly misleading and incorrect She also uses cherry picked citations that overlook things and points to some flaws For instance she talks at length about the differences in structure of male and female brains despite in just this past November December could be January, I d have to look up the sources numerous neurological, scientific, and regular AP news outlets CNN, WP, USAT , have posted several studies with in depth results showing how there is no differences structurally between male female brains and thus going a long way towards showing how there is transgenderism, homosexuality, etc Her psychology of how males evolve and how we still operates paints us in the prototypical feministic man ape creature stereotype All with her giving a chapter to feminisim and how we need to remove stereotypes from women She goes into discussions on sterilization, mandatory birth control, mandatory meetings programs tests to _allow_ people to have children She describes how we should create mandatory community service post high school during college or just for two years after High school Programs enabling the elderly should be bumped to 75 and people should be working to 70_minimum.Like I said there is plenty wrong with her ideas and policies The book itself is given its publisher style rather unflattering in the sense that it reads like an internet messageboard Paragraph _ two returns space _ paragraph _ two returns space _ paragraph All in all, if you follow her ideas and policies, you will tout this book and love it, if you don t you won t I wouldn t say its a great think piece because most of these ideas congressional term limits, sterilization for unfit mothers fathers, racial relations and how blacks need to be better parents, etc can all be found on most online forums pages etc especially on most Republican sites There is a Christian backing to her work, but she does outright say that basically the Bible is wrong on numerous accounts, and therefore, reads like a modern Christian the Bible is a metaphor style accounting of Christian backing A post modernism Republican take on how to fix America if you re into that, you ll probably love

of other reviewers who claimed that this book is the work of Republicans or Donald Trump no At almost every problem raised in this book, the author points a big government, authoritarian totalitarian state solution And if you d actually read the book, you d have noticed that the author specifically states she voted for Obama both times So this is no piece of work by a GOP thinker.As to myself, I normally vote Republican and consider myself a small L libertarian and I would never want to live in a country run according to the mandates, requirements, by laws, penalties and other nanny knows best strictures espoused in this book.Two stars only because I finished it without flinging it out the window, and there are a few correct needles in the haystack but not enough to be worth spending the time to find For the first 30 or so pages I was noting down every substantial point I disagreed with and rebutting it, but I gave up I never would have finished the book flag 1 likeLike see review
