About the Author

Mark Moore has had a long and varied journey into political activism. As a young man he was Communications Director for the Young Republicans of Arkansas, but left the party and became state chairman of a minor political party. Venturing back into Republican politics in a professional capacity, he helped a state senator win two state-wide primaries, the last time as Campaign Director. In 2008, he was the Communications Director for Congressman Ron Paul's Presidential Campaign in Arkansas. Mark has been prominent in the Tea Party movement, and presently is a board member of "Neighbors of Arkansas", an anti-party group whose goal is to promote independent candidates for the state legislature and for local office. Mark and his wife Melissa have two children.

It is not often that for $5.99 you can get your thinking changed- and confirmed, in the same book.    A lot of us are frustrated at how we keep losing liberty, losing freedom, losing control over our own government.   This book clearly shows that we mostly have not even be asking the right questions, so no wonder we are not getting the right answers. I am more libertarian and more anarchist than the writer (and 99% of all humans), but I see that some framework needs to be created to stop power from becoming centralized over time.  Without that, we are going to keep losing and not even know why.  And when I say "we" I mean libertarians, anarchists, limited-government conservatives, and anyone who does not want their life and economy controlled from a single city far away.   If libertarians and conservatives can work together on any basis at all, it would be around this philosophy of government.   What it does is examine every way the centralizers have consolidated power and come up with an antidote.   If you don't make provision to shut door, the control freaks will get through it.   The writer also makes a strong case that this was what the founders were trying to do, and they did it pretty well but it needs tweaking.

One of the most hotly debated questions of our time is how we should be governed. This book takes an innovative approach to solving this dilemma. Philosophers and activists should not neglect this important contribution to the great discussion of our time.

The premise of Localism is the de-centralization of government power, which was the original vision of the Founding Fathers of this country in order to provide the most freedom for the most people. Some holes have allowed vast encroachments of government power over time, and this book provides well-thought out solutions that have been proven necessary over time. Yet, it is not a "right" vs. "left" issue--but presents a much bigger picture that people throughout the politial spectrum can relate to. HIGHLY recommend the book!
