"Jefferson believed that in the long arc of history, we can see repeated over and over again the struggle for individual freedom against a monopoly of force. The monopoly of force has killed, stolen, lied, and cheated its way into power and wealth. The first two decades of the twentieth-century America - an era arguably dominated by Theodore Roosevelt and Woodrow Wilson - are not an exception to Jefferson's conclusion: rather, they are a heightened paradigm of it. In those twenty or so years the role of the federal government changed so radically that it would never be the same again." (pg. 248)
Besides providing fascinating details about these oddly juxtaposed yet soul-mate-like troubled men, I especially liked how Judge N. ties the Constitutional amendments of the time together. The only one that was any good, and worth changing the Constitution for was the 19th (women's vote). All the others have damaged the Constitution beyond recognition, yet are still in place today, except for the short live 18th (alcohol prohibition). I had never before realized how destructive the 17th was (Senators selected by popular vote and not by State appointment), and how fundamental the old arrangement was to the balance of powers established by the original framers.
Before the 16th amendment (legalizing income tax) the federal government got 40% of its revenue from taxes on alcohol.Read more ›
Starting around 1900, under the Teddy Roosevelt and Woodrow Wilson administrations, and followed by Franklin Roosevelt, Lyndon Johnson, and others, the federal government has been dealing directly with the people on more and more key issues such as the entitlement programs, federal income tax, etc., and the States are being silenced. This has changed the nature of the Federal Republic and the American people are losing their freedoms[...].
I would like to learn what Judge Napolitano can offer as to how to correct the above problems and how we can return to the founders' principals.
For those who value liberty, this is a great book explaining how exactly our freedoms have been eroded away and how the two presidents discussed in this book are responsible.
