Overview

The Nature of Humanity and the State of America offers a new and single unified theory of the nature of humanity that provides a general understanding and description of social life, the social world, and the state of America. The author presents an extensive and comprehensive explanation of the whole spectrum of social life, its identification, and the description of the major universal laws or principles that govern and operate in the social world. He identifies the key principles for influencing the well-being and destiny of individuals, societies, and humanity. In addition, he provides a more precise description of the state of American society, and offers an initial plan of action for restoring the well-being of America, and other errant societies. This book goes further than any other to identify the cultural crisis in America, and to understand and explain the causes of this crisis, as well as suggesting solutions for ending the crisis and with it the decline of America.
