Riassunto: "Remember, democracy never lasts long. It soon wastes, exhausts and murders itself. There never was a democracy yet that did not commit suicide." ~ John Adams These words of one of the most influential men involved in the founding of the United States seem increasingly prescient and relevant today as issue after issue gathers on the horizon to cloud our nation's future. The problems are evident. But as common American's struggle to place the nation on a path to a viable future, their efforts have consistently been met with failure. We find every effort to change the errant direction of our nation frustrated. Are we truly free to chart our own future? Or has the great American experiment failed? The consistency with which government grows and liberty recedes seems the product almost of plan. Yet it is not the result of an unseen hand manipulating events. The study which you are about to embark on is an examination of the legacy of freedom left by the Founding Fathers and the inherent nature of the government they gave us. From the "consent of the governed" to the "division of power", from the "rule of law" to "freedom of religion", these are the pillars of American liberty. But closer inspection finds many of these foundational principles more myth than reality. Democracy itself has come to be the opponent we battle to restore what has become The Myth of American Freedom.
