In Reform The Kakistocracy by William L. Kovacs, the author describes what the government and those in power have evolved into. An elite, self-serving minority who lack the morals and principles to care for those who elected them. Over the last forty years, there has been an incredible rise in wealth and social inequality, leading to the American people feeling mentally defeated and with no will to improve their circumstances. The Kakistocracy uses the rule of law to control and manipulate its citizens, drowning them in debt, inadequate healthcare, and the future, whilst they feather the nests of the most wealthy and powerful. Throughout this analysis of the current situation of the government, we uncover the corruption, mismanagement, and bureaucracy that threaten the future of generations of citizens to come. How can the American people take back control and demand change from those who decide whether we are free, wealthy, or safe? America finds itself at a historic crossroads. Discover the many strategies and solutions that are available to us which can totally change the direction of government and silence the hidden elites that whisper their demands behind closed doors.
The overwhelming content of Reform The Kakistocracy is so thought-provoking and definitely inspires change and action. The description of the Kakistocracy is very accurate but a frightening reality at the same time. William L. Kovacs is exceptionally well researched on his subject and the changes he outlines are extremely empowering. There are so many interesting points made, such as the regulatory structure and how it is used against its citizens, 'the Dutiful Cogs'. The ten Governance Principles were fantastic, realistic, and totally within our reach to change the current status quo of inequality. There are many shocking statistics throughout this incredible book such as the way the US tax, healthcare, and social security systems are run. The way the elderly and those most vulnerable are ignored while the top 1% gain the most financially. The section on restructuring our relationship with the Kakistocracy and the twelve proposals to do this was my favorite part of the book. I loved every chapter of this book and it would make an absolutely perfect gift for those who feel neglected but lack direction or knowledge to demand change.
