Do you have a voice in your society? How many times a day do you think about or discuss important problems or issues of society? Would it make a difference? By design, America was made to be a government of, for, and by, the people. Learning How to Fly takes on the challenge put forward by Thomas Jefferson about how to give each person a direct voice in government without going through a representative or some political authority. Not the will of the majority, but rather how to achieve the maximum political liberty for everyone, in the face of a world with billions of voices all moving and pursuing different directions. Some of the topics include: · How can a direct democracy preserve the rights of minorities while granting the will of the majority? · Why did the early democracies fail? How is it possible to give each person a voice in his or her society without that society collapsing into anarchy? · Is a republic the final form of government? What are the inherent, fundamental weaknesses and problems of republics? · Logically, and from a theoretical point of view, where does the path of a republic inevitably lead? · How did the designers of the U.S. Constitution define liberty for the common man? · Would our present government meet, exceed, or fall below their expectations? Are you ready to leave the nest, spread your wings, and take flight with Learning How to Fly, and experience real freedom?
