A masterpiece. A brilliant critique of modern unlimited democracy, followed by
a model constitution (not convincing to libertarians, but probably an improvement
over existing forms of government), followed by an epilog that deals with the
process of cultural evolution and the lack of understanding of it among modern
scientists. The epilog is one of the most original and brilliant contributions
to knowledge that have read.
