"The United States shall guarantee to every state in this union a republican form of government, and shall protect each of them against invasion; and on application of the legislature, or of the executive (when the legislature cannot be convened) against domestic violence."
This is not about spouse abuse. It is about life-threatening harm that originates from within our borders. The author broadens our perception of what constitutes violence.
Article IV, Section 4 is an all-important provision that justifies the very existence of the federal government by granting it the power to protect its citizens in times of national emergencies. Such a time is upon us.
An environmental attorney, Diamond thoroughly documents how an unprecedented exposure to multiple chemical toxins, a denatured food supply, and other "webs of morbidity" are altering our health, intelligence, and behavior - especially that of our children - and that this is indeed a domestic violence emergency anticipated in the Constitution.
The main point of Diamond's well-researched book (397 footnotes) is that we can, "using the Constitution as intended, change our economy from one based on waste and war to one based on peace, public health, and the survival of future generations."
This is a people's clause, not one for lawyers and courts. Please learn about this vital provision so that we can get together and use it. That's why our founders gave it to us.
It raises some very important concerns about the current safety of our health care system and food and drug safety. The book doesn't just leave you with a feeling of hope;essness but provides you with a means of taking action.
