Also, it seems to be a noteworthy coincidence that this book appeared almost exactly 500 years after Machiavelli presented his immortal wisdom to a Prince (Lorenzo di Medici), which could only make one wonder. Is "The State in the Third Millennium" a long overdue reply from a Prince to people's politicians?
The U.S. Constitution did not give legislators the authority to enrich themselves or their friends and family at the expense of the citizens, but neither did it prevent cronyism from taking place, and it has from the beginning of the country. We have deteriorated into an oligarchy and borrowed to the point of potential default. Prince Hans-Adam did not elaborate a strategy for implementing “direct democracy”, but the idea deserves consideration. Voters are far more capable of understanding and voting on a specific law, than on assessing the character and competency of a legislator, particularly when party politics provides only two or three choices.
