Press Release (ePRNews.com) - Miami, FL - Sep 15, 2017 - Michael G. Merhige, a retired Corporate Development Executive and CIA Operative, has completed his most recent book “Thoughtful Pauses: A Political Philosophy”: a gripping and potent work that concentrates on the foibles of the government and expresses the musings of a man who worked within this same government.
Michael says, “I have seen the power of the new technology in the broad coverage of communication, which has been a windfall for big media monetarily; but more importantly, a powerful weapon to influence a nation’s thinking and, therefore, its actions. This is not to be underestimated, especially among a misinformed or ill-informed public.”
Published by Fulton Books, Michael G. Merhige’s book is a way of communicating some of the author’s political and philosophical thoughts discerned throughout the years about society, government and the law. It may be that democracy is the most saleable of all the forms of government; yet, it is the one that comes with much need for care by the people as its appeal for acceptance can lull the populace to sleep.
To borrow a paraphrase from Abraham Lincoln, “‘Government for the people” can only be insured through the active vigilance and participation of “government of and by the people.” Here then one has the law as one of the guarantees for justice, peace and tranquility in society. The often-repeated phrase, “Government of law and not of men” can mislead as the words appear clear, but in truth, government of law is merely government organized and determined by men or the people.
Readers who wish to experience this intriguing work can purchase “Thoughtful Pauses: A Political Philosophy” at bookstores everywhere, or online at the Apple iTunes store, Amazon, Google Play or Barnes and Noble.
