eBook (ePub): $0.00
This pamphlet is about one thing: a solution to our failed two-party electoral system. Abraham Lincoln in his Gettysburg Address invoked a vision of “government of the people, by the people,... More > for the people.” Our present two-party system has moved us far from this ideal to government of the party, by the party, and for the party.

Some people will take the suggestions in the treatise seriously, politicians will scoff at it saying if they had any virtue, they would have come up with those policies themselves; economists will... More > try to prove how impossible it is to implement those measures, the same way as it was proven that it was impossible for an internal combustion engine to power a car, as that would be like lifting oneself off the ground by the bootstraps. Tax accountants will panic as this would mean losing business, as would public servants. But it is the firm belief of the writer that Joseph and Josephine Blow would at least have an open mind about the suggestions. Once the politicians recognise them as vote-getters, they are bound to jump on the band-wagon and become illustrious leaders of opinion who follow the masses. Economic and social security policies have social repercussions. They are either used as insidious tools for social engineering or a blind eye is turned to these repercussions. These are examined in this treatise.< Less

More > citizens, at whose core are seven rights. The author explains why this human rights organizational system would transform society if applied to education, business, and government.
