Richard J. Maybury who is also Uncle Eric
"The Roman model is fascism. Its one and only fundamental principle is that power holders should do whatever appears necessary, no exceptions and no limits." —p.91

"During the age of the Roman Republic, which was roughly 500 B.C. to the
year 0, Roman civilization grew up and flourished under an early form of common law. This law was then abandoned in favor of arbitrary political law, which eventually became the basis of most law today." —p.92

"The Roman system does not work, it always leads to crushing taxes, war, inflation, business failures, unemployment and poverty." —p.94


Book Cover Uncle Eric Talks About Ancient Rome and How It Affects You Today Ancient Rome:
How It Affects You Today


This is a collection of articles from Mr. Maybury's newsletter, U.S. & World Early Warning Report.

This book answers questions such as, are we headed for fascism like ancient Rome? Mr. Maybury uses historical events to explain current events, including the wars in the former Soviet Empire, and the legal and economic problems of America today. History does repeat.

To build a better future we need to know how we got where we are today. The political trend that has dominated the world for 2,000 years, including the investment markets, remains almost unrecognized. Does America have the Roman Disease? Is there a cure? Or will America repeat the mistakes of Ancient Rome and collapse into poverty, ruin and war?
