Why is this? To what end?

If you purge God and religion as a self-control mechanism and promote immorality, a need is created for innumerable new laws and dependence on the state for order. More laws translate to more government control of its people and the eventual transfer of power to an elitist oligarchy that is accountable to virtually no one. Unalienable rights, a higher power and morality to which people and governments are accountable, becomes a historic relic having been displaced by an all-powerful state. In other words, you "undo" the uniquely American tenet, as stated in our Declaration of Independence, that all men "... are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness .... That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed ..." and, in so "undoing," allow for the complete redefinition of the American governmental paradigm.

As you progress through the book you will quickly and reasonably come to the understanding that the ACLU considers the U.S. Constitution to be something that must be undone and their relevance to American law and culture progressively marginalized. If successful in this strategic endeavor, virtually nothing obstructs them from redefining America as an extremist secular-socialist state through the use of the courts and with activist judges as their accomplices. The ACLU's work toward this end is further evidenced by their recent advocacy for the use of international law and precedent within the American legal system. That is, they desire to engender the formal acceptance of erroneous foreign case law precedent and jurisprudence for use in American courts as a means to facilitate the erosion and relevance of the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution. Without the Constitution as America's steadfast legal mooring, activist judges will be empowered to randomly select and apply foreign case law in American courts that suite their personally held worldviews.

Perhaps the most essential point, though, that Sears and Osten seek to impart to the reader is this: The time has arrived when challenges to our way of life must be defended vigorously in order to once again establish justice, ensure domestic tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general welfare and secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity.

I agree.

There has perhaps been no time in American history when our successful model of American society and government has been threatened to the degree it is today; and the primary transgressors in this truth are nefariously embodied in the likes of the ACLU, a highly sympathetic cultural elite, and to a degree, the ambivalence of we – the American people.

Nevertheless, after reading this most critical and timely book, I have a strong sense that much of this is about to change ... and you will, too.
