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!

Balance is lost throughout the kingdom when the whimsical King, overcome by impatience, decides to plant the wrong type of tree in the Royal Gardens, ignoring the cautious advice of his wisest counsellors. As havoc spreads across the land an absurd, and at times comical, battle unfolds where nature plays its part alongside humans and other beings. This deeply symbolic tale, to be enjoyed by children and adults alike, provides an allegory on the inner struggle of humankind. It is a reflection on how our lack of internal clarity has generated much of the chaos and environmental degradation we see in the world today. Based on an original story published in South America in 1998, this new bilingual edition presents some minor corrections to the Spanish version along with an excellent translation to English. Students will also find in it a valuable tool, alternating between both languages by simply flipping the book over.

DIV The Bible has always been an integral part of American political culture. Yet in the years before the Civil War, it was the Old Testament, not the New Testament, that pervaded political rhetoric. From Revolutionary times through about 1830, numerous American politicians, commentators, ministers, and laymen depicted their young nation as a new, God-chosen Israel and relied on the Old Testament for political guidance. In this original book, historian Eran Shalev closely examines how this powerful predilection for Old Testament narratives and rhetoric in early America shaped a wide range of debates and cultural discussions—from republican ideology, constitutional interpretation, southern slavery, and more generally the meaning of American nationalism to speculations on the origins of American Indians and to the emergence of Mormonism. Shalev argues that the effort to shape the United States as a biblical nation reflected conflicting attitudes within the culture—proudly boastful on the one hand but uncertain about its abilities and ultimate destiny on the other. With great nuance, American Zion explores for the first time the meaning and lasting effects of the idea of the United States as a new Israel and sheds new light on our understanding of the nation’s origins and culture during the founding and antebellum decades. /div
