Democracy Is Self-Government

– Harold W. Percival

 

In Democracy is Self-Government, Percival provides an original concept of True Democracy, where personal and national affairs are brought under the spotlight of eternal truths. This is not a political book. It sheds light on the direct connection between the conscious self in every human body and the affairs of the world in which we live.

 

An excerpt from the book:

 

“– One who has freedom performs every action or duty because it is his duty, and without any desire for reward or fear of consequences. Then, and then only, he can enjoy the things he has and uses. – “

 

In the book, Percival tells us that we each have an opportunity, as well as a duty, to bring eternal Law, Justice, and Harmony to the world. This begins with learning to govern ourselves. Self-government means that we learn to govern our own desires, thoughts and actions because, virtuous or otherwise, they make up our external world. If honesty, good judgement and strength of character are desired in government affairs, then these qualities must first be operating within ourselves. The purpose of this book is to point the way.
