Christopher S. Mellons
Among Men is a sampling of ideas about our political system, how it has been abused, and how and why we must restore our Constitution to the grand document our founders created. It is nothing particularly fancy or academic--just an American giving his opinion about our strengths and weaknesses, how they came about, and how we can reclaim our great nation. Drawing on the thoughts and theories of political philosophers such as Jean Jacques Rousseau and Thomas Hobbes, Mellons tells where these men got it right and where they got it wrong, meandering in and out of the current political situation in the process. But with the recent tea party uprisings and government expansions, the political climate is ripe for a book such as Among Men.
We live in an age of rapid change, and Mellons reminds people to slow down, and remember the past. It is from the past that we learn our most valuable lessons. Since we have eliminated the core principle of our country--the belief that our rights come from God, indeed that there is a God--we have seen our moral infrastructure collapse. With it we have seen what Mellons calls war in a time of peace (not to be confused with a book by the same name). The book dwells heavily on these concepts. The seeds have been sown for revolution. It is up to the people to see it is a peaceful one. If the people continue to ignore the antics of their politicians and alleged leaders, they will be forced to reconcile that an apathetic population can quickly find itself in civil war.About the Author
Christopher S. Mellons was born in Louisville, Kentucky, on August 24, 1982. Blessed with a wonderful childhood filled with many happy memories, he was raised Catholic, but now considers himself an Independent Baptist. Mellons was told from an early age that he had a gift for writing, was in district writing contests in grade school, and was one year asked to be a judge in the contest.
Mellons studies American history, our political system, and plans to graduate from the University of Louisville with a Bachelors Degree in Political Science, with a minor in History, in December of 2009.
He became intensely interested in politics upon entering college in 2000, though the subject had always piqued his curiosity. It is his love of, reverence for, and desire to protect our American history that led Christopher S. Mellons to politics. He lives with his family in Valley Station, Kentucky, just outside Louisville.(2009, paperback, 142 pages)
