Globocop: How America Sold Its Soul and Lost Its Way
Lulu.com, 2004 - 249 strani
The first post 9-11 election gave us a choice between two big-government, high-tax globocops quibbling over the details, not an alternative to the aggressive international militarism that makes us the natural and logical target of terrorism. This book looks at the progression from republic protected by militia to empire protected by standing armies in Athens and Rome - and the similar progression in America. It looks at an alternative: The Swiss way, which has kept Switzerland free and republican for 700 years in the center of a warlike continent. America once understood and followed Washington's "Great Rule" and J. Q. Adams' admonition not to go out into the world in search of monsters to destroy. We were then the light, not the sword, of freedom. Now we have picked up the sword only to see the light grow dimmer year by year.

Stran 251 - God has not been preparing the English-speaking and Teutonic peoples for a thousand years for nothing but vain and idle selfcontemplation and self-admiration. No! He has made us the master organizers of the world to establish system where chaos reigns.
