country were running things. They are united against us, the country class. We're stupid and the biggest thing they have in common is their
absolute conviction that they are better equipped than the people to rule. The professor goes over the history of how these things came to be.
It's a short book and if anything, things have progressed further in the direction Professor Codevilla laid out in the book.
Tea Party people couldn't care less about being cool and hip, but are deeply concerned about the future, and this is where Codevilla takes us. This is a guide to the Ruling Class and how to counter it. This is the guidebook for those of us that don't like where we have ended up after being led for years by this subspecies of human being. Codevilla includes the Declaration of Independence, as well as the Constitution in his book. Even those who consider themselves well educated on issues have read the original article that Codevilla wrote and have been astounded by his insight. This book takes it further. I would recommend this book, as well as Goldberg's "Bias," and Hayek's "The Road to Serfdom" as must reads for those who are looking for insight. Codevilla's book on Switzerland during WWII and the extortion by politicians, those connected to them, and corrupt judges of over one-billion dollars from Swiss banks is a good read also(Between the Alps and a Hard Place).
