This book spotlights the dangers republics bring to world societies. Far from being models for their values extolled as freedom, individualism, and rule of the law, contemporary republics are demonstrated to be as many oligarchies dominating defenseless and unorganized people.
Is freedom, just like rule of the law, a luxury or a public good that everyone can enjoy? Are individualized people more or less likely to participate in political activity? Who is actually exercising sovereignty when "people's representatives" preferably serve the interests of their corruptors? Well known, falsely obvious responses do not satisfy many other similar questions about republicanism.
The book shows how aristocracies perpetuate traditions of shadow rule and string pulling behind republican leaders, councils, and political regroupings. Their ruling members implement secret oaths and evil philosophies, impoverishing societies and steering countries into wars, terrorism, and mass destructions. Analysis of the Order of Skull and Bones, with offshoots such as both Bush presidents, shows how and why aristocratic secret fraternities produce political and business devils.
Finding ways to democratizing the exercise of sovereignty may be a necessity, not a question of choice.
