More on The Once and Future King: The Rise of Crown Government in America fromAmazon:
This remarkable new book shatters just about every myth surrounding American government, the Constitution, and the Founding Fathers, and offers the clearest warning about the alarming rise of one-man rule.
Most Americans believe that this country uniquely protects liberty, that it does so because of its Constitution, and that for this our thanks must go to the Founders.
F. H. Buckley’s book debunks all these myths. America isn’t the freest country around and the Constitution as we know it today was not what the Founders had in mind.
The country began in a revolt against one king, and today we see the dawn of a new kind of monarchy. What we have is what Founder George Mason called an “elective monarchy,” which he thought would be worse than the real thing.
Is the damage to the Constitution irreversible? The way back lies through Congress, but how likely are amendments to redress the balance of power to pass? Most Americans seem to have accepted, and even welcomed, Crown government. Can today's status quo be overturned?
