Regular price $8.00

How do you define the American Dream? To David Walden Levin, the ultimate American Dream is a society that treats everyone ethically: with fairness, justness, and compassion. In The Messiah Amendment, Levin presents a common-sense yet innovative proposal for how such an environment can be fostered. This thought-provoking text outlines the simple tenets of and theory behind a new amendment to the U.S. Constitution that would enhance the legal, political, and societal rights of all citizens. In addition to applying many historical and contemporary issues (from gun control to tax plans) to support the argument, Levin focuses on the means of achieving political fairness and protection of personal rights. According to Levin we cannot consider ourselves an ethical nation until we provide these rights to everyone. Through the step-by-step foundation provided by his amendment, Levin offers the means for achieving such an ethical nation.
