According to Adolph Caso, the dream behind "We, the people…" has not yet been fulfilled, although America came close in doing so with Dr. Martin Luther King in his "I have a dream" speech. A counter revolution against King took place which further vitiated the dream of Thomas Jefferson, who originally did away with the European practice of giving special privileges to the nobility and to the clergy: Every citizen was equal under and in the law. Unfortunately, that goal was neither fully achieved with the ratification of the Constitution nor with the issuance of the Emancipation Proclamation.
In this book, the author reproduces the original documents he believes make possible America's form of government which, despite its short-comings, continues to be one of the highest form of government that man has devised.
In this collection, there are ten original documents, from the Mayflower Compact to the Promissory Note, plus to-the-point commentary on each document.
