"This is a marvelous review of American History from the perspective of 1937. It has amazing insight and a new way of looking at the business versus agricultural histories of this country.
Most enlightening is his take on rights and powers that should belong exclusively to WE THE PEOPLE. Ever since the Civil War those rights have been usurped by business and Corporations that were never designed to have them."

Rights of Man by Thomas Paine
“If men will permit themselves to think, as rational beings ought to think, nothing can appear more ridiculous and absurd, exclusive of all moral reflections, than to be at the expence of building navies, filling them with men, and then hauling them into the ocean, to try which can sink each other fastester. Peace, which costs nothing, is attended with infintely more advantage than any victory with all its expence. But this, though it best answers the purpose of Nations, does not that of Court Governments, whose habited policy is pretence for taxation, places, and offices.”

Rights of Man by Thomas Paine
“That there are men in all countries who get their living by war, and by keeping up the quarrels of nations, is as shocking as it is true; but when those who are concerned in the government of a country, make it their study to sow discord and cultivate predjudices between nations, it becomes the more unpardonable.”

What an interesting theory and look at ancient history through the lens of a novel.
Lots to think about and wonder about. For those seeking a spiritual journey mixed with some science, have fun.
Loved it.

“Mark my word, if and when these preachers get control of the [Republican] party, and they're sure trying to do so, it's going to be a terrible damn problem. Frankly, these people frighten me. Politics and governing demand compromise. But these Christians believe they are acting in the name of God, so they can't and won't compromise. I know, I've tried to deal with them.”
