The Authority of Divided Authority Federalism
By: Alan Scott Hammurabi
About the Book
How many Americans actually know, let alone understand, the U.S. Constitution? That document overtly cited, yet the spirit and text ignored? Even in the most liberated institution, the Academy, the Constitution is understood by a minority faction within a faction. This is clearly not due to ignorance, but to the prodigious substance that goes into understanding what the Constitution was meant to be, what it became, and what it is.
Decades of adaptation and intellectual evolution have wrought a different document than was intended. Many changes were good, but some proved fatal to the tranquility of an extended republic.
Federalism is the body of the original document and we, as citizens of humankind, must understand the concept. It is not a collection of individual liberties or rights, but a structure learned through experience and time to protect the former. Generations of intellectuals, politicians, lawyers and laymen discovered the law of nature known today as federalism. As some, such as Prof. Jeffrey Rosen, have discovered, it has become imperative to understand the Constitution, and therefore, federalism. This is the first book that synthesizes as much knowledge over the concept of federalism prior to and then claims the concept is actually a law of nature.
