We were once a society that valued individual liberty and privacy. But in recent years we have turned into a culture that has quietly accepted surveillance cameras, police with drug-sniffing dogs in our children’s schools, national databases that track our finances and activities, sneak-and-peek searches and seizures of our homes without our knowledge or consent, and anti-terrorism laws that turn average Americans into suspects. In short, America has become a lockdown nation, and we are all in danger.
In A Government of Wolves: The Emerging American Police State, constitutional attorney John W. Whitehead charts America’s transition from a society governed by “we the people” to a police state governed by the strong arm of the law. The simple fact is that the Constitution – and in particular the Bill of Rights – is being undermined on virtually every front. The openness and freedom that were once the hallmarks of our nation are now in great peril. A Government of Wolves not only explains these acute problems, but is a call to action offering timely and practical initiatives for Americans to take charge of our present course, and stop the growing police state.
Time is running out. We are at a critical juncture, and every citizen who values his or her personal rights and freedom needs to pay close attention to the message in this book!
