Compelling book. Guiness does an admirable job in reviewing America's great freedom experiment: How it was foundational to the origin of our country; how from its origins American freedom would have to be carefully governed in order for it to not only thrive, but survive; and how we've gradually distanced ourselves from our Founder's underlying conceptualizations for freedom's flourishing and protection.
Guiness describes the Founders' beliefs about freedom with a symbolic metaphor that he refers to as the "Golden Triangle of Freedom"- "Freedom requires Virtue, Virtue requires Faith, and Faith requires Freedom"). In other words, with great freedom comes great responsibility, given that perhaps the greatest enemy against freedom is freedom itself.
He describes how there are external threats to freedom, but the internal threats are perhaps just as dangerous, if not more. In the words of John Milton, "License When we Cry Liberty."
America is currently at a crossroads where the self-destruction of our country's most noble and lauded virtue hangs in the balance. America's beliefs about freedom today are not only a distortion of the Founders' conceived, but our current beliefs have fractured very fabric of freedom that our Founders fought so hard to instill. The only question is what is America's next move? Will we mend freedom's fences and secure its borders, or will we move further towards freedom's outright destruction. Highly recommended read.

This book is absolute truth in absolute terms, one that will be difficult to follow be at the self-serving nature of mankind to always put oneself above others.
