An American Poet takes a novel look at Democracy through a series of essays in “The DNA of Democracy.” The author visits upon democracy’s rare occurrences in history, from its western origins in Athens and Rome, to its long evolutional growth in England, and the utterly unique establishment of democracy in America, where the combined influences of the Amerindian’s view of life, some revolutionary old world philosophers and a generation of rebel, warrior poets wrought an unprecedented nation! The work expounds on the exploding genius this combination of influences let loose in a free America, which with time created a shining era of unprecedented glory… These essays are works of discovery and celebration concerning the rare, the life giving, and the fragile quality of American democracy.
