Summary
Whitehead charts America's transition from a society governed by "we the people" to a police state governed by the strong arm of the law. In such an environment, the law becomes yet another tool to oppress the people, and the American people are in grave danger of losing their basic freedoms. He provides a call to action offering timely and practical initiatives for Americans to take charge of present course of history and stop the growing police state
