Lost American Principles

The Counter-Revolution

by Steven L. Hall


Book Details

Can the Idea of America survive?

The whole world is engulfed in economic chaos, deficits and debts. War and terrorism are in the daily headlines. The arguments over the solutions, and how much government is necessary to achieve them, are very confusing.

The author explains some of the Fundamental Principles that can lead to real solutions, principles that our founders believed in, but which we seem to have lost somewhere along the way.

In fact, there has been a Revolution against those Principles, and it is time to mount a Counter-Revolution, to re-discover our Lost American Principles.


Book Excerpt

Our economy is crumbling. Foreclosures, bankruptcies, bailouts, deficits, debt; these are the headlines - worldwide. Yet we seem to be doing more of the same things, faster, that landed us here. We have our military in two-thirds of the world’s countries and are engaged in eternal wars. We have a myriad of issues facing us, from infrastructure to energy to climate change to education to . . .

We need to find solutions. Pretty darn quick. But not by arguing about tactics that stem from unsound theories in the first place; rather, we need to rebuild upon solid foundations. We need to re-discover the Idea of America. We must work together to identify the problems that we have brought upon ourselves, and correct them. And then find ways to resolve the challenges that are not our own fault, effectively.

This book is based on these Fundamental Principles:

• that all people are created equal;

• that all people have certain natural Rights;

• that Government should be of the people, by the people, and for the people;

• and, that the Golden Rule is the most basic, most universal moral principle.

If you, too, believe in these principles, then we have a great deal of thinking to do, together.
