In simple direct language, Jerry Fresia reveals the true intent of our qFounding Fathersq who designed the Constitution to protect their property and ensure that the poorer majority would have no real voice in political affairs. Fresia reveals the Founders' fears of qtoo muchq democracy, why the Constitution was opposed by most Americans, and how its ratification was gained through deception and physical coercion. Toward an American Revolution shows how the illegal wars, domestic repression, and economic inequity of late twentieth century America are not incongruous with our Constitutional design. Book jacket.The Philip Morris Magazine recently sponsored an essay contest ... studies, one by Frank Donner and the other by Robert Justin Goldstein, upon which this, admittedly thin, overview is based: 236 TOWARD AN AMERICAN REVOLUTION.
