Acted upon,could end the tyranny currently reigning in the U.S.

(5 stars)

this man is one of my all-time favorite philosophers and writers. If the knowledge and wisdom imparted by him were acted upon in the united states, we could get rid of the corrupt tyrannical federal government that currently runs this country and execute all of them for High Treason, which is what they perpetuate and get away with on a daily basis. I hope to all that is good that one day the American people use this information to destroy the evil Beast that has become the greedy, corrupt, self-serving Ruling Class in America.

The title says it all, but the book itself is very much worth one's time. Excellent reading. Thank-you!
