The State of the Nation: A Dictatorship Without Tears

A lot of good, if depressing points, but at the end, this author shied away from the obvious conclusion as nearly all others seem to do. After illustrating the pitfalls of government very clearly, instead of taking the obvious leap, Anarchy, he defaults to the tired old trope of minarchy. That's what the founders set up in the first place, and the Constitution was their best effort to boilerplate it shut. That lasted all of about "four-score and seven years", so what makes ~anyone~ think another cleverly worded document can do better? Remember, Anarchy is an absence of ~rulers~, not an absence of rules or order.
