How the Constitution Can Guide America Back to True Greatness

America has become a country lacking in both physical and psychological security—and this insecurity is a clear and present danger to world peace and stability. This must-read, political call to action is for anyone dissatisfied with our dysfunctional government and seeking real change. Simon Chadwick argues that the true American dream is realizing self-actualization (The Pursuit of Happiness), the pinnacle of psychologist Abraham Maslow's famous Hierarchy of Needs. Chadwick sets out in simple and straightforward terms how we can save US democracy by fulfilling every citizen's innate needs, including the top echelon of achieving his or her creative potential. In order to generate greater overall contentment for its citizens, Chadwick proposes that a country must establish a democratic libertarian government, a form that is much closer to the general intent of the Constitution, which gives every person the right to live in peace, without fear, under its protection.

By dissecting current events and framing them in Maslow's hierarchy, Chadwick offers fascinating historical and cultural context, and clear, positive advice for how our country, culture, and government can move toward democratic libertarianism, self-actualization, and ultimate satisfaction.

About the Author

Growing up in South Africa as the son of a prominent anti-apartheid activist, Simon Chadwick has firsthand experience of living in a totalitarian society. After residing and working in the United States for twenty-eight years, he increasingly noticed distinct and unnerving parallels to his early upbringing in the way US politics was developing. Upon the election of Donald Trump, he decided he could no longer sit on the fence; he became a citizen and started to write this book.

A corporate CEO, management consultant, and editor-in-chief of a global magazine, Chadwick gained his MA in philosophy, politics, and economics from Oxford University. He is married to a Louisianan and lives in North Carolina.
