Maxwell believes that times and culture have changed since the United States Constitution and Bill Of Rights were signed. Self –reliance, personal responsibility, and the traditional values of marriage, family and work often give way to the fractured and dysfunctional family, birth out of wedlock, and dependency. The federal government now seems to be moving to guarantee a standard of living for every citizen.
This drift into a federal welfare/entitlement system arguably can be correlated with the Constitution at times being totally ignored or being construed with twisted interpretation. Maxwell forecasts dire consequences unless there is a course correction and believes we are running out of time. He wants a rediscovery of the Constitution in order to return to limited government, and a balanced budget amendment. He proposes a phase out of Social Security and Medicare, but is open to alternatives. There will likely be strong opposition from liberals and progressives
The book, of very modest cost, is well written, easy to read, and contains much information. The arguments are both carefully constructed and timely and can initiate interesting discussions. Maxwell does not believe in cursing the dark. He has lit a candle.
