From the invention of writing c. 3,300 BC, the world has mostly been ruled by kings. Though called different names: Pharaohs, Chieftains, Emperors, Caesars, Sultans, Khans, Maharajas, Monarchs, & Dictators, they act the same. Power, like gravity, concentrates into the hand of one person who rewards friends and punishes enemies. Socialist & Communist countries, too, though professing equality, inevitably are run by dictators. The most powerful king on the planet was the King of England. When Americans got the chance, they set up a government as far from a king as possible. A "republic" is where the people are king ruling through representatives. The Constitution is essentially a collection of hurdles to prevent power from snapping back to a king. Where did founders get their ideas? England's Magna Carta; Roman Republic; Athenian Democracy; and ultimately, Ancient Israel. Israel's initial 400 years out of Egypt was the first well-recorded instance of a nation ruled without a king. Did this influence colonial pastors who founded New England? What is needed for a nation to function without a king? Is the God of Bible an integral part? What is the difference between a democracy and a republic. How do they rise & fall? Did political activists develop tactics to help them fall: Machiavelli, Robespierre, Hegel, Marx, & Alinsky? Are these tactics being used in America today? -Identify racial & class fault lines running through society. -Fan real or perceived injustices into flames, creating tension & unrest. -When domestic violence erupts, everyone is so desperate to have order restored they relinquish freedoms to the state. 45 countries fell to communist dictators this way. How is domestic unrest created? With agitators, labor organizers, community organizers, agent provocateurs. Political advisor David Axelrod explained in a NPR interview, April 19, 2010: "In Chicago, there was an old tradition of throwing a brick through your own campaign office window, and then calling a press conference to say that you've been attacked." Stalin stated: "Crisis alone permitted the authorities to demand - and obtain - total submission and all necessary sacrifices from its citizens." Discover keys to preserving America's republic!

King S Counsel A Memoir Of War Espionage And Diplomacy In The Middle East

A CIA station chief, later Jordan's lawyer in Washington, reveals the secret history of a lost peace. Jack O'Connell possessed an uncanny ability to be at the center of things. On his arrival in Jordan in 1958, he unraveled a coup aimed at the young King Hussein, who would become America's most reliable Middle East ally. Over time, their bond of trust and friendship deepened. His narrative contains secrets that will revise our understanding of the Middle East. In 1967, O'Connell tipped off Hussein that Israel would invade Egypt the next morning. Later, as Hussein's Washington counselor, O'Connell learned of Henry Kissinger's surprising role in the Yom Kippur War. The book's leitmotif is betrayal. Hussein, the Middle East's only bona fide peacemaker, wanted simply the return of the West Bank, seized in the Six-Day War. Despite American promises, the clear directive of UN Resolution 242, and the years of secret negotiations with Israel, that never happened. Hussein's dying wish was that O'Connell tell the unknown story in this book.

"The story of the future is written in the past."-Lord Acton, 1877. Did you know Greek philosopher Plato predicted democracy would degenerate into anarchy once people lost their virtue, then a tyrant would arise? Did you know POWER inevitably concentrates into the hands of ONE person? What was the first nation in recorded history that attempted to rule itself without a king? (Hint: they left from Egypt around c.1400 BC). How did Caesar fundamentally change Rome's Republic into a dictatorship? George Washington warned in his Farewell Address, 1796: "Disorders and miseries ... incline the minds of men to seek security ... in the absolute power of an Individual ... [who] turns this disposition to the purposes of his own elevation, on the ruins of public liberty ... and thus to create ... a real despotism." Ben Franklin observed June 2, 1787: "There is scarce a king in a hundred who would not, if he could, follow the example of Pharaoh - get first all the people's money, then all their lands, and then make them and their children servants forever ... I am apprehensive that the government of the States may, in future times, end in a monarchy." Yale President Ezra Stiles stated May 8, 1783: "Whatever mutations may arise in the United States, perhaps hereditary monarchy and a standing army will be the last." President William Henry Harrison, warned March 4, 1841: "The tendency of power to increase itself, particularly when exercised by a single individual ... would terminate in virtual monarchy." Of communist dictatorship, Vladimir Lenin said: "The goal of Socialism is Communism." Can 6,000 years of history help predict the future? This volume is an in-depth review of the rise and fall of great republics, kings and tyrants, with profound quotes from notable philosophers, statesmen and historians, allowing the reader to gain powerful insights from the past into what is happening in the world today. By the end of this book, you will be one step closer to answering the question, "is history repeating itself?"
