about Stability, Justice, and Clarity
The United States is at a crossroads. Changing conditions have diminished our society’s cohesion and endangered our course of self-governance, leaving We the People and our republic on the brink of collapse.
James Madison drew on Aristotle’s Book 5 of Politics when he wrote of mortal diseases “under which popular governments have everywhere perished.” Whereas Aristotle and the founders had to rely on their innate understanding of human nature, we have numerous modern tools to help us better understand social and institutional dynamics. These tools include techniques of system development and those of Payne, Pournelle, Keynes, Hayek, von Mises, Rickards, Tainter, Strauss, and Howe.
Stability, Justice, and Clarity are the opposite of Madison’s mortal diseases. This book offers analysis for repairing and maintaining the American condition. By revisiting the very foundation of society and government with a fresh eye, the reader is left with a solid understanding of the choices and potential consequences that await.
