form your local city councils, state legislatures and Congress people  for our Global Marshall Plan (GMP). The GMP
is a new strategy for achieving homeland security. Instead of seeking security through domination (military, economic, cultural, diplomatic, etc. )we seek security by demonstrating to the world that we are the most caring society. The Global Marshall Plan details how that can happen.

Back to Hobbes?

THOMAS HOBBES’ Leviathan, published in 1651, famously postulated that a strong central government was necessary to suppress human inborn cruelty, thereby making life among humans liveable, instead of “nasty, brutish, and short” as it would otherwise be. Every man or woman was up in arms against every other man and woman.
