The Mercy of Allah By Hilaire Belloc
Paperback: $15.95
Prints in 3-5 business days
The Mercy of Allah is not a book about Islam. Purporting to be the memoirs of an enormously wealthy and wholly conscienceless merchant of Baghdad, it is in fact a satirical exposé of... More > corruption in politics, government, law, religion, but above all in the world of banking and finance. Belloc reveals himself as a humorist in the class of Wodehouse and Waugh, but more importantly as a well-informed and perceptive commentator on how the world, and particularly its finances, are run. For you may read this book to enjoy its richness and wit, or you may revel in the story as a work of fiction, but at the deepest level, the author bequeaths to us in this immortal story his analysis of why the international banking system violates reality and must eventually collapse, dragging down in its wake the corrupt system of pseudo-democratic government which is its puppet—a prophetic commentary on the events we are living through.< Less
The House of Commons and Monarchy By Hilaire Belloc
Paperback: $20.55
Prints in 3-5 business days
Here is Belloc’s mature thought on political systems in general and on the state of England in particular. The main function of government is “to protect the weak man against the strong,... More > and therefore to prevent the accumulation of wealth in a few hands, the corruption of the Courts of Justice and of the sources of public opinion.” He explains the nature of monarchy, aristocracy and democracy, the conditions in which they can function, their advantages and disadvantages as systems of government and their relation to English requirements. A scathing denunciation of the corruption and irresponsibility of the House of Commons which had lost the respect of the governed. An appeal for a return to true monarchy, rather than puppet kings, as the only hope for England. A prophecy that England cannot remain great, nor Englishmen achieve true freedom and fulfilment, if they continue to tolerate the existing oligarchy. First published in 1920.< Less
