About the Book

The Tyranny of Political Ignorance highlights cracks in the United States’ democratic armor, beginning with the Constitution’s legalization of slavery and continuing through to the Trump presidency.

President Trump, who may be the most politically ignorant individual to hold this high office, has disrupted international agreements and dismantled his predecessor’s accomplishments.

The coronavirus pandemic and the Black Lives Matter protests have further exposed Trump’s shortcomings as a leader. Future generations may observe these two cataclysmic events as blessings as they revealed Trump’s inability to lead and focused a bright light on the nation’s social and economic disparities.

The author hopes that his analysis will draw attention to the nation’s inequalities that have inhibited the United States’ progress toward the goals set forth in the Declaration of Independence and the Fourteenth Amendment of the Constitution.

Join the author as he explores the flaws in the United States democracy and advocates reform that will require the president and all members of Congress to demonstrate nationally approved levels of competence before they can hold office this democracy.
