''Patriotism is a virtue of the vicious.'' -- Oscar Wilde
A book investigating the ideas of patriotism and statism, religion and governments. It shows how communism and socialism and every other '-ism' is just about the same thing, with very little difference in any of them, including American democracy. Hated by nearly every religious leader and politician, this author shows exactly why, without mincing any words, America needs to change, not to a new ideology, but back to what it was originally --- a republic. It is a warning for other countries as well. Read this book. Do not be fooled by the senseless rhetoric of those whose claims sound true, but are false. This book has the nerve to name religions for what they are, including the cult of Islam.
