10. amendment protection - declares that this list of rights are foundation, and can not be nullified or changed except for clarification. clarification can not amended or change these rights listed.
it is hard to argue these rights, but look at what the collectivist world has done with itself and human rights. do you see any examples of these rights in the collectivist world. Mao, Stalin, Hitler, Mussolini, Pol Pot, Castro - these are the examples from the past, but what of the collectivist examples of today? Bush, Obama, Elizabeth II, Prince Charles, virtually all of the UN and the EU parliaments, Gore. These rights seem nice, but where can we find examples of them in reality? collectivist aka socialist supporters aka elitists, don't need these rights... they have money, and they don't want people to have these rights... as exemplified by their international policies. so where are these rights? and, again, who is making the decisions? who will be in charge of these?
all in all it was a very interesting read. i think it is a must read for anyone wondering what the collectivist ideology is all about.
While his motives were laudable and his pleadings heartfelt, his narrative was windy and poorly structured. It allowed him to lash out at various putative flaws such as democracy and political parties and thus often to wander off the subject. As a piece of literature, this book does not earn him first prize, but still, his gut sense, obviously stirred by the new terrifying war, guided him toward a remedy that was dead center.
This book was first published in 1939, when Mr. Wells was into his 70s. By this time in his life, he was already considered behind the times, and this book clearly shows that. He is surprisingly attached to the Nazism, which he imagines as a step in Germany’s movement from democratic capitalism towards international socialism. (It wasn’t until the end of the war that he found out that the SS had compiled a list of prominent Britons to be liquidated after Operation Sea Lion, and that near the top was his own name!)
In point of fact, what this book is is Wells’ taking his love of international socialism and viewing then-current trends with the idea that everyone else was as enamored of it as he was. The analysis, seen from seventy years on, looks more like wishful thinking than like clear-eyed analysis. He was correct in his view of the dangers of Russia’s “Tyranny of the Proletariat,” but he failed to understand the nature of the men in charge of the Soviet Union – writing, for example, “Stalin, I believe, is honest and benevolent in intention...”
But, does it now, in the twenty-first century appear that Wells was right, and that the world is moving towards a socialist, one-world government? And, does that not mean that this book is as prescient as any of Wells’s other works? I would argue that it doesn’t, and that while trends may be moving towards one-world socialism, that Wells did not truly understand what was going on in his world and what the changes then occurring were and what they meant.
Overall, I found the book to be uninformative wishful thinking masquerading as serious analysis. It does not tell you anything about what was happening in 1939, nor does it tell you anything about how we got to today and where the world is going. I think that the book is an interesting look into Mr. Wells’ worldview, but one that has nothing for anyone who is not interested in him personally. As such, I do not recommend this book.
