I found this book to by very interesting, informative, and enlightening.

Interestingly, the U.S. has cheered the development of the EU, somewhat reminiscent of Apple welcoming IBM into the personal computer marketplace.

John Fonte has performed his Nation and it's citizens (a word I chose deliberately) a great service.

I found this book to by very interesting, informative, and enlightening. It answered all of my questions that I have been formulating over that past 30 years such as: Who is really controlling the EU. What is really going in American government. Why is the world trying to change American Exceptionalism. I was amazed to learn that changing America has been in play around the world for over 100 years. If you are a patriot and really care about the future of America, and the Globalization of Our America, read this book. It is relevant and applies to what is going on NOW.

In "Sovereignty or Submission" Hudson Institute senior fellow John Fonte has given us a book that is serious, scholarly, intelligent, and timely. It is a well written overview of the global governance movement, which aims to subordinate major areas of national sovereignty to transnational and supranational institutions such as the United Nations, universal human rights treaties, the International Criminal Courts, and of course, the European Union. While the mainstream news media runs occasional stories like the Goldstone Report on Israel or the NAACP taking voter ID complaints to the U.N. Human Rights Council, global governance rarely gets systematic coverage. Yet it is a serious and growing force in global politics.

"Sovereignty or Submission" starts with a discussion of nationalism in general and Americanism more specifically. This review of the foundational basis of a nation's identity is broader and, I think, clearer than similar passages in Mark Levin's "Ameritopia". Given the book's title, it comes as no surprise that there is a detailed discussion of sovereignty, comparing the Westphalian and Philadelphian models and where within the nation state sovereignty resides. A key issue is that in a liberal democracy (Fonte uses the term "liberal" in its classic sense), sovereignty lies with the people and that they assume a moral right to govern themselves.

Fonte challenges the suggestion by Francis Fukuyama that Western liberal democracy is the end point in political evolution, that no compelling, generally acceptable sociopolitical system would supplant it.

This is a serious and scholarly work from John Fonte that elucidates the present peril we face from those who wish to make every American "a citizen of the world." I hold that no such citizen exists and we're better off for it.

The notion amongst the nation's elite politicians, lawyers, and university staff (I shall not falsely call such coddled privilege holders by the title "Educators"), that there's something better for me, my family, my neighbors, and the place where I live, work, and worship, if only, if only, I would submit my decisions and those of the community in which I live to others, who are acclaimed as more "globalist and worldly" is something which would induce vomiting in a normal animal. Yet, our intrusive power-grubbing power elite consistently touts such nonsense. Here's a quiz: If I have to make important personal decisions and live with the consequences, do I pay the consequences or do you? If you get to make my important personal decisions, do you have to endure those consequences or do I? Guess whose rate of successful decision-making will be greater?

Having said as much, I think that this book is exceptionally well reasoned, fully documented and persuasive that local sovereignty is what our Constitution demands, and that any office holder had better re-read the Oath to the US constitution. To keep you in suspense, I wont reveal the concluding story of the book concerning John Adams. But it is precislely what we need. John Fonte has performed his Nation and it's citizens (a word I chose deliberately) a great service. I hope you will buy, read, and persuade others to read this book.
