Shadows of Acropolis

Volume 2

Synopsis

As it was with the democracy of ancient Athens, America’s democracy has, over time, been subject to change, proving democracy is as fragile as it is rare. The shadows now falling over American democracy are not from obvious sources, but from age old, unsuspected ones, which tend to the creation of tyranny. Defining the causes and consequences of these changes provides the hope we may hold, to restore American democracy’s proper foundations and glories. This volume of essays discovers the threats that a growing centralized concentration of power can pose to the self-governance of a free people. The latter essays of the book spell out, in the end, how to reverse that concentration, by mechanisms as old and as new as the republic.

The Reviews Are In

Lyons’ political treatise asserts that growing federal power and bureaucracy have undermined the Constitution, social cohesion, and individual liberty. Lyons’ manifesto is a rebuke to big government and a paean to conservative values of faith, religion, individualism, free enterprise, and loyalty to what he sees as the Framers’ constitutional vision. His dissections of political philosophy are cogent and discerning, and his analyses of concrete policies are well thought out, employing elegantly aphoristic prose.
