San Diego, CA, January 27, 2016 --(PR.com
)-- Retired executive Frederick Parker has a unique perspective on the political system that operates in the United States, his home for nearly 60 years. He fled the Communist regime in Hungary in 1949, bringing with him his thoughts on Communism’s failings. He details his observations of the decline of democracy – as well as suggestions on how to improve it – in a new book released by Dog Ear Publishing.
“Cancer in American Democracy: The Causes and the Cures” shares Parker’s theories on how money in politics corrupts every aspect of modern life. Each chapter explores a different aspect of the political system in the United States, from politicians misinterpreting the Constitution to corruption in Congress, lawmakers and the impact they have on social programs and health care, and the rising gap between the wealthy and the middle class.
Parker also explores solutions to what he calls the “cancer” eating away at America and its democratic ideals of equal opportunity through hard work – capital cronyism. The heart of the issue is nonpartisan – a government that doesn’t work affects everybody. The emergence of special interest groups and lobbyists takes away democracy’s vision of a government of the people by the people for the people. Instead, politicians pander to those who give them money, Parker writes. Each chapter concludes with a potential solution to cure what ails the system.
Author Frederick Parker, a retired general manager of a high-tech international company in Silicon Valley, has lived in the United States since 1958. He was born in Hungary, escaped from the Communist regime in 1949 and immigrated to Australia, where he earned an engineering degree. Parker, who took courses in macro and micro economics during post-graduate studies, became a stanch supporter of the free-market system after observing Communism’s failings first hand in his younger days.
He also wrote and published “Win at Duplicate Bridge” and another book titled “Strategy and Teamwork=Great Products,” about manufacturing management. He and his wife, Mary-Anne, have two sons and three grandchildren.
