This is one of the seminal documents in the recreation of the Plutocracy which began in the late 60s, after the GOP wrested control of the racist south from the (no longer quite so racist) Democrats.
Basically, its US section explains that we have been suffering from too much democracy. In other words, during the 60s the rabble ceased respecting and obeying their betters. This paper presents the middle of the road, Center Right and Corporate Liberal views about how that rabble might be put back in its rightful, worshipful and obedient place.
BTW, there are now three copies of the report sitting about 1 inch below the fingers with which I am typing. And I BUILT THEM. Or, rather, I acquired them legally.
You should at least skim it over.
