Title: The Failed Experiment
Author: Mart Grams
Genre: Social Science/Ethnic Studies
When the American government was founded, the Founders and Framers assumed a government “of the people, by the people, and for the people.” That government is dying. It is under the authority of not “we, the people” but rather a small elite that is trying to snuff out the great experiment of man ruling himself, the common man, the man that within the right system of government can attain his purpose to achieve happiness. Were the Framers wrong? Were the ideas of Alexander Hamilton right? Is man incapable of self-rule? Does he need to be taken care of, watched, manipulated? No! It is not a failed experiment! It is time to retake that government.
I feel after reading this book that I got a quick education in what is wrong with the government and some ways that we could possibly go about fixing it. But, I also think that even though change is necessary we are a long way off with how things are going right now. This was a very interesting book and one most people would find interesting, whether you love politics or not.
