I have enjoyed this book very much! I had entered a search engine on Amazon.com books to study the differences of liberals and conservatives and purchased this book along with two other books, one from USA Today, by Victor Kamber and Bradley O'Leary, and the other on Moral Politics by George Lakoff, I then read Richard Maybury's book. I next bought Maybury's book on Ancient Rome and then ordered five more. My next book to read was this book, Whatever Happened to Justice?, apparently not the revised version. I really found convincing this book as accurate in historical truth in regards to the original political model set by Hamilton, Jefferson, Henry, Adams & etc. This is the first time I've read a critical difference between democracy and liberty and the argument for the later. While Democracy is majority rule, it is whatever the mob or majority decides, where as Liberty is based on the two eternal, multi-religious, multi-culture laws of "Do all you have agreed to do," and "Do not encroach on other persons or their property.". Now that's ecstasy for me.

The information on the differences between the old British Common Law and Political Law. Now this is significant, as Common Law is based on the above two maxims, while Political Law is on whatever the government decides, whether it be a monarchy, fascist, socialistic or democratic - the government creates the laws. Common Law, the two maxims, are historical science, laws higher than man's; laws of nature itself.

This book lucidly and simplistically explains the origins of government, that is, the thoughts and conceptions of the founding American government; Jefferson, Hamilton, Adams, the ideas of the Federalists and the Anti-Federalists, are some of the most lucid and clearest explanations I have ever read on this subject.

The learning just continues with this installation of Mr. Maybury's books. I learned a great deal about the economic arena in the first three and now he has taken us on a ride through the successes and failures of nations, governments and social entities that fail to follow the most basic rules of good government.
Mr. Maybury is fabulous in bringing complicated issues down to a level where average Americans and even our youth can understand them.
The sad truth about the world is that society itself is allowing young people to loose sight of the true and significant moral model of the world that they should have. Is this a direct result of a planned attack on the basic principles Mr. Maybury indicates are esential for a free people to survive or even the concept of freedom itself? Perhaps.
It is interesting to find that the absense of morality being intertwined with government has caused the downfall of so many economies in the past and contribute to the loss of the freedoms, civil liberties and individuality so cheerished by other countries and Americans for over 200 years.
It would appear that the world is sliding into a more barbaric time where we will depend only on our own devices and our own intellect to save us. But when we turn so abruptly away from the inspiration of Divine Law we actually digress in our dealings with others rather than progress.
This book should be a wake up call to all who turn away from history and the facts of life in this area. Justice made and enforced only by men or women and their own prejudices is not justice at all but mere Choas.
All we have build and all we have achieved stands on the brink of destruction brought about by our own egos and ignorance of histories lessons.
A great read and thought provoking book.

Maybury cuts to the heart of what all well-intentioned religions and philosophies have in common with his 17 words: "Do all that you agree to do, and do not encroach upon other persons or their property." I have taught this as a mini-ethics course at my high school- one made up of over 60 ethnicities and nationalities- and all students understand it. Given the recent Florida election law war ,this book serves as a timely reminder that ultimately law must be found not in overly detailed law books, but in people's hearts. This book was recommended to me by author Harold Klemp (Autobiography of a Modern Prophet) who finds these 2 principles useful as an aid to spiritual living. So do I!

I'm not kidding. I've read mises, hayek, rothbard, dawkins, and many other great writers and influential works. But page for page, with its clarity and ability to transform an average uneducated person to almost genius... The logic, peppered with awesome bits of history... This is one of the greatest books of all time. The one-two punch of Richard's Whatever happened to penny candy(about economics) with this book, is perhaps the best gift one can make to a young person just starting out in life and to an adult as well. Just awesome, all the books in the uncle eric series are must haves period. No sequence of easy to read pages can do so much to educate a human being as the uncle eric series.
