The Firm League of Friendship: A Restoration of the Classical Studies
Elderberry Press, Inc., 2003 - 384 pages
It was once held that all educated men were liberal-liberal in a sense far removed from today's usage. Educated men once had faith that all public and political questions might be settled by reasonable men taking counsel together. Thus could men live together in liberty. The founders of these United States, men who pledged their lives, their fortunes, their sacred honor to the cause of revolution took this faith for granted when they assembled in 1787 to draft a Constitution promising domestic tranquillity. Whatever powers they delegated to the new Congress were both necessary and correct. By use of logic and concrete example gleaned from a career as engineering consultant for the auto industry, Brian W. Firth proves that there is but one requirement of a free peope if they would stay free-that they insist the Congress, President and courts abide by the law of the land.
