  • To fully understand oligarchy (the "Establishment"), read John Adams

    07/04/2016 6:03:17 AM PDT · by cotton1706 · 6 replies
    Over the past several years, the term "the Establishment" has been frequently used. The Republican Establishment, the Democrat Establishment, etc. The "Establishment" is nothing more than the ruling oligarchy, "the few" who have consolidated power within themselves and pass it around amongst themselves (witness the Bushes, the Clintons, the Romneys, the Cuomos, the Kennedys, etc.). And witness the means that congressional leaders select and elect only their own types for power (the NRSC, NRCC, DNSC, DNCC and the oligarchs that fund them). There is nothing new in this. In fact, it is quite common in world history. And there is...

    There has been a reoccurring thought- that POTUS would declare martial law if he saw his legacy about to go down the drain. So, I wrote a book along this line. Essentially, I believe that there would be a schism, with much of the south and midwest declaring their allegiance to the Constitution and resisting the Washington dictates. Some states would sit it out, others, like California, would support martial law. If interested, the book is out there on Amazon Unlimited. Those that have read it think it is a good read.

  • A Defence of the Constitutions of Government of the United States of America

    Available for the first time in a modern and readable edition! Preceding The Federalist by several years, this first volume of John Adams' A Defence of the Constitutions of Government of the United States of America, is a profound work of political and governmental theory. What prompted Adams to write such a remarkable treatise was a letter, a letter exchanged between a French statesman and a Welsh philosopher, between Anne-Robert-Jacques Turgot and Dr. Richard Price. In his letter, Turgot criticized the constitutions of government that several of the American states had adopted since their separation from Great Britain. In Turgot's...

  • My latest publication, for those interested in the French Revolution

    The letters of Publicola, a fascinating window into the debate that occurred in the early days of the French Revolution, before significant blood had been shed in France, before the French people had beheaded their king and queen, before the Reign of Terror, before Napoleon was a name of any significance, and before all of Europe became engulfed in war, written anonymously by John Quincy Adams.
  • Arsonist: The Most Dangerous Man in America by Nathan Allen

    In this landmark work of history, Arsonist reveals the secret role of one man who challenged the foundations of feudalism and instigated the American Revolution. James Otis was disgusted by the anti-democratic feudal structure of society and threatened to set it all in a flame though, he confessed, he too would likely be consumed in the fire. By the winter of 1760, this provincial bourgeoisie, one of the wealthiest and most intelligent men in the British colonies, had become fully radicalized. That his words a promise and a prophecy came to full fruition and his predictions about the...

    I am pleased to announce the publication of my new novel Nation Of One. Some here at FR have already read a draft version and I received some very good comments.

This a great escapist, lazy day at the beach kind of novel that I know you'll enjoy. So if you have a mind to help my efforts, click on the link above and help spread the word! Thank you very much and CONSTRUCTIVE criticism...

    Some time ago, I got tired of hearing politicians, etc. refer to the United States as a democracy when it is a republic. So I took it upon myself to do something about it. My idea was to produce a short, cheap book which explains the fundamentals of the American government, that could be easily distributed far and wide, similar to Thomas Paine's "Common Sense" or Barry Goldwater's "The Conscience of a Conservative." There is very little material out there on republics and republican government, due to the fact that the word republic has had numerous and various meanings over...

    Amazon ^ | Jan. 31, 2014 | Bruce Deitrick Price
    [Review of "Credentialed to Destroy: How and Why Education Became a Weapon"]Ideally, everyone would read this book, especially those hoping to stop the continued degradation of the public school system. I think it's fair to call Robin Eubanks the nation's foremost education intellectual. She explains the decline of the public schools thoroughly and at deeper levels than you will typically find. She is an attorney and her book can be regarded as a lawsuit brought by The People against a reckless and destructive Education Establishment. In short, she takes on the extremists plotting to make the country dumb and dumber....

    Who is John Galt?: A Navigational Guide to Ayn Rands Atlas Shrugged is now available at Amazon. Click here for a link to the book. This book is the result of our first FReeper Book Club. In recent press articles and among the general public, there is a sense that Ayn Rands monumental Atlas Shrugged is a prophetic work, accurately predicting the Great Recession and the path on which Americas economy and society are set. But Atlas Shrugged is a difficult book to read. Many are daunted by its extreme length, Rands prose style, interminable speeches where the action stops...

    Harvard Business Review ^ | 15AUG12 | John Coleman
    When David Petraeus visited the Harvard Kennedy School in 2009, one of the meetings he requested was with author Doris Kearns Goodwin. Petraeus, who holds a PhD in International Relations from Princeton, is a fan of Team of Rivals and wanted time to speak to the famed historian about her work. Apparently, the great general (and current CIA Director) is something of a bibliophile. He's increasingly an outlier. Even as global literacy rates are high (84%), people are reading less and less deeply. The National Endowment for the Arts (PDF) has found that "[r]eading has declined among every group of...
