The UN isn't about decentralization

The UN is the opposite of decentralized politics. It was created as a tool of empires and as a stepping stone to world government.

Restoration of the republic--as opposed to centralized control from above in DC--partly hinges on the Tenth Amendment, which is a recurrent theme in the book. The Constitution was a move away from the decentralized Articles of Confederation but its federalism was a far cry from the lopsided system we have today. I would like to see a restoration of state and local decision-making as much as possible.
