Item Description...
The warring ideas of centralization and decentralization are at the core of modern political debates about the national economy, U.S. foreign policy, and citizens' cultural values-just as they were among our Founding Fathers. In this controversial and thorough study, Professor Marshall DeRosa explains how the Confederate constitution carried decentralization even further than the original Constitution and added a number of safeguards against government, features which he argues would benefit Americans today. Noting the presence of big government and excessive rules, DeRosa's examination serves as a lesson and inspiration with his emphatic call for Americans to gain control and restore the substance of our democracy. He addresses the power of the threat of succession on rogue leaders-one of several astute theories posed that will inspire readers to reconsider their role in our nation's redemption. The ultimate question remains: Will decisions be made in the communities where people live-or in Washington, D.C.?

Brilliant, original analysis deserving of thoughtful reflection  Dec 18, 2007
In the movie the Devil's Advocate, Keanu Reeves asks Al Pacino, the devil, why he picked the law as a profession instead of something high profile, like military leadership or political office. Pacino responds that the law is perfect because you can operate behind the scenes, unencumbered because you are not noticed. Pacino concludes, "They don't see you coming."
Professor Derosa shows this tactic makes not only for an interesting movie plot, but is one that is and has been fully operative in the national and world community for many decades now, dating even back to the many of the federalists in the early years of the American republic.
The brilliance of his analysis first demonstrates how the Confederates, in their constitution, tried to shore up the weaknesses of the American Constitution and protect local governments and peoples from the authoritarian rule of centralized authority, thus preserving true Federalism and protecting the Republican nature of American Constitutional government.
Next, he shows the consolidators reasoned that uniformity must be imposed upon the states if the principle of equality was to prevail. Essentially, the individual must be sacrificed for the greater good.
None of these ideas are original, having been brought to light in the analysis of several other writers. What is unique is what Prof. Derosa sees flowing from these ideas, taken to their logical conclusion, in the context of our present world community. In short, in writing this text Prof. Derosa is interested in the past, not for its own sake, but for how the past affects a future coming fast upon us.
He makes a strong case that, when taken to their logical conclusion, the ideas of the consolidators and nationalists of America's past, being increasingly operative within the law of the nation, lay American sovereignty vulnerable to the dictates of the world community, bringing the American people under subjection to world courts and world opinion, through the agent of the world consolidators, the U.N. He shows the same logic the American consolidators used to subject the states to the dictates of the federal courts is consistent with the same logic that could subject the entire nation to the international community.
On the face of it, saying such a thing may sound far-fetched-- the basis for a cleaver movie plot and nothing more. But Prof. Derosa's detailed analysis of specific cases and the contents of various treaties America has signed on to, reveals a scenario that is not merely a distant probability, but highly likely and frighteningly possible.
Even now, while citizens around the world are preoccupied with daily living and distracted by a mass media that substitutes sound-bytes and propaganda for a discourse of the truth, the net is being tightened around the peoples of the world for a massive redistribution of wealth and a consolidation of real power, all brought about by a world juridical power. (At this point it might be good to remember that Genesis records that the serpent was the most subtle creature in the garden).
In the face of this, the only real solutions to resist this movement lie in the revival of the principles of 89, 98 and 61. Specifically, the American Constitution, the Kentucky/Virginia Resolutions of 1798 and the Confederate Constitution of 1861. Without secession and interposition the liberty of local peoples and states will be swallowed up by an international elite, fueled and empowered by international courts. Secession sounds like foolishness to the average American, but my money is on Mr. Derosa's analysis that reveals the foolishness of secession is, in fact, true wisdom and our only hope for liberty. The first step toward this reclamation of liberty and the restoration of the Old Republic our Founders brought into existence is for America is to disavow its aggressive stance as a world Empire, reaffirm its federal and republican roots, disentangle itself from the U. N. and proceed accordingly.
Sell your bed and buy this book. Every one who can think should have to encounter Professor Derosa's carefully reasoned analysis. If there were only a hundred more in academia like him I would not fear for America in the coming years.
May God save the South.
Recovering our freedom  Oct 12, 2007
The framers of the Confederate Constitution were, from long experience, well aware of Washington's appetite for power, and convinced that centralized government inevitably leads to tyranny. When Southerners set up their own federal system after secession, their supreme objective was political decentralization and the rule of law (in contrast to rule by law) as protection against abuse of power. Dr. DeRosa is absolutely correct when he says, "the original and ongoing campaign against CSA principles is a ruse to augment the scope and reach of a coercive centralized government, at the expense of individual and community self determination."

Professor of political science and expert in constitutional law, DeRosa is author of the classic study THE CONFEDERATE CONSTITUTION OF 1861. In his new book, he goes on to make the compelling argument that truly democratic principles are to be found in the Southern model of government. If Americans are ever to regain their liberties lost at Appomattox, it will be in a return to the fundamental principles embodied in the Confederate Constitution. Bold and insightful, REDEEMING AMERICAN DEMOCRACY is essential reading.
