Thing's You Will Learn

Unlike many historical accounts that often exceed five hundred or more pages, this book delivers in eloquent and readable form what you need to know in short chapters totaling some two hundred fifty pages.

America's Foundation in The Pursuit of Happiness

How and why America is unique in all human history, being the first country founded with a constitution that guarantees its citizens unalienable rights of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.

America Puts The People in Charge

America is unique in founding the idea that the government has no legitimacy outside the people. The U.S. government’s essence is that it’s “of the people, by the people and for the people.”

America's Destruction by Internal Corruption

America’s two greatest presidents, George Washington and Abraham Lincoln, were both prophetic in their vision that America would not be destroyed by a foreign military power, but rather by the people’s failure to be well-informed, internal division and hyper-partisanship, and moral decline and corruption. And we are in the late stages of this happening now, right before our very eyes.

The 1619 Project and Critical Race Theory are False Narratives

The book presents overwhelming evidence why the 1619 Project and Critical Race Theory are an entirely false narratives, and why America is one of least systemically racist white supremacist countries in the world.

The People Flourish with Limited Interference of Government

America became the most prosperous nation in the world in just 200 years, not because of its virtuous government, but rather because constitutional checks and balances limited the scope and interference of government and allowed people’s freedom and creativity to flourish.

The Need To Reconnect With America's Past

If Americans do not reconnect with their nation’s virtuous past, their country will be destroyed by incivility, corruption in government and ignorant warring factions.

Who is Scott S. Powell?

Scott Powell has been an entrepreneur for 30+ years, founding two companies. He has been a fellow at Stanford’s Hoover Institution and is currently senior fellow at Discovery Institute. Having been a frequent guest on national radio and TV, he has also published 250 articles in such publications as the Wall Street Journal, Barron’s Financial, New York Post, Philadelphia Inquirer, Washington Times, Chicago Tribune, Houston Chronicle, Dallas Morning News, San Francisco Chronicle, San Diego Union, Florida Sun Sentinel, USA Today and some two dozen other newspapers and journals in the U.S., Japan and Europe. He has been called on twice to provide expert witness testimony for the U.S. Senate Committee on Foreign Relations.

His background has been shaped by the school of hard knocks. After working and saving, Scott took a leave of absence from undergraduate studies, back-packing around the world for several years to some 48 countries—chronicling poverty, oppression and dysfunction. After returning, he graduated from the University of Chicago (B.A. and M.A.) and received his Ph.D. from Boston University. This is his third book.

  • I would like to be recognized for being one to rise above conformity, think independently and even stand alone, with the courage to make tough decisions and pursue the path less traveled.
  • I would like to be recognized for being a source of light that illuminates the path for others that they might find their way through darkness and make better choices that lead to genuine meaning and happiness in life.
  • I would like to be recognized for leading by serving and putting others’ interests first—helping them to achieve and be more than they previously thought possible.
