Following up on the release of his book Reform the Kakistocracy: Rule by the Least Able or Least Principled Citizens, author William L. Kovacs announces the establishment of a blog, www.ReformTheKakistocracy.com, to continue discussing the reform ideas set forth in his book.
Kovacs rips up the talking points hiding the failures of the federal government. Based on four decades of work on national policy issues, he sets out proposals for restructuring a government run by the least able or least principled citizens.
Kovacs is unapologetic in his proposals:
- government officials should act as fiduciaries not handmaidens to political parties which are mere associations of individuals organized to take control of our government.
- Congress must reclaim the powers delegated to the President to restore checks and balances in government.
- Courts must cease being super-legislators.
- The federal government must devolve powers to the states for more efficient delivery of services.
- The growing federal debt will place all citizens into involuntary servitude to the federal government.
Kovacs adds, “Reform the Kakistocracy was written to foster a discussion of why we formed a government; it is for people, not politicians. It is for citizens seeking ways to place limits on an out of control government.”
