    1. As always, will post a more in depth review on my blog - however, for the benefit of the community, here's a shorter summary.Was able to rate this 5 star/top of the line w/o question nor hesitation, as the book's core theme/spine is imperative for many millions (over time) to read, apply, & teach to others. I used to wonder, as recently as 4 years ago, why things never seemed to improve when I was a supporter of one of the major political parties in America; this book, along with several ot [...]

    2. Excellent principles in this book. They're laid out really easy. A little too easy. In many parts in every chapter the same principles are reiterated over and over it became almost painful. You can tell its one of his first books written.I very much enjoyed the quotes throughout and the list of further reading. I might recommend this book, but I think there's some others out there that are better written. Maybe a revised edition in the future could help this version.

    3. Another great book from Oliver DeMille. What is presented here can change the nation and change lives. Whether you are familiar with natural law or not I highly recommend this book. It is both a great introduction to vital knowledge about natural law as well as a follow up to what you have already studied. He always brings something more to the table than what you have otherwise considered.His style is to speak to the ordinary person, making his writing understandable and yet profound at the sam [...]

    4. I am so glad this book was recommended to me. Most of my Government knowledge comes from high school. I am slowly changing that with one book at a time. There is so much good and pertinent information in here written for the average person to understand. Which is exactly what I needed.

    5. I regretfully admit that, despite my higher education learning (aka college degree), I am shamefully ignorant in most things political. I attribute this to my lack of interest in history and dislike of conflict, but that's not really an acceptable excuse. I am grateful to authors like Oliver DeMille who write books like these for the "non-experts" in plain language so someone like me can easily understand major points and ideas that shape our nation and government. The chapters were short, strai [...]

    6. I love all Oliver DeMille books. He has a very easy way of teaching truth. I've heard a lot about Natural Law, but never really understood it. Oliver does a great job of unpacking what that is in this book and showing how it relates to freedom. I would highly recommend anyone in this country to read this book.Even better a second time through. With all that's happening with the decrease in freedom in our society I believe it's ever more important to study natural law and how our founders thought [...]

    7. Though this book is short, it is hard-hitting and to the point! It explains in very understandable language how governments worked in the past and what they can become. This book explains history and gives some simple examples of cultures that have risen and fallen. A look into what works and what has not worked. And Oliver proposes some solutions and ways we citizens can be involved in making a difference. The book is written in a story form that you almost forget about as you read the facts an [...]

    8. This book is a fantastic introduction to natural law and does a phenomenal job at linking the important natural laws to the current decline of our nation. It was very thought provoking and eye-opening. A definite must-read for anyone that cares about freedom and what we can do to keep it!

    9. "Government isn't likely to fix things, nor will we likely see much real change form politicians or big institutions. If things are going to be fixed, it is up to ordinary people. The people need to know these twelve natural laws."

    10. This Book is needed in our present times! Great reminder that only the concerted effort of a group of people will change the world, in fact, it is the only thing that has. It is also interesting how Common Sense nearly always aligns with Natural Law.

    11. Anyone inteested in stopping the decline of freedom in our country needs to rad this book. Very enlightening about the natural laws that govern us. We haveignored them for too long!!

    12. An excellent book. If you are worried about our freedom, pick up this book and see what can be done.

    13. We Hold These Truths to be Self-Evident: 12 Natural Laws of Freedom, Progress, and Success is a primer on "the proper role of government" as pointed out by many great thinkers such as Bastiat, Blackstone, Jefferson, Cicero, Marshall, Hamilton, William of Occam, Pufendorf, Aristotle, Thomas Aquinas, Hugo Grotius, and on and on. It's a summary from a particular point of view, and it's very well done as such. At first, I thought I was going to be annoyed reading a brief rather than reading the grea [...]

    14. In this book DeMille outlines twelve laws—what are called natural laws—that are critical to the freedom, progress, and success of any nation. He does a great job of articulating these laws and explaining why they are fundamental to any group of people that want to live together in freedom. He explains why freedom is not something we may take for granted if we want to keep it. The book is not long, is presented in a straightforward manner, and is important in helping current generations under [...]

    15. Natural law was hard for me to understand. This book has helped me to understand natural law, where I can use the understanding to question how and when the government is breaking natural law. Throughout history governments that break natural law eventually collapse.This book makes me want to live in a world where natural law is supreme and the government is not in control of all aspects of our lives.A must read over and over!

    16. I gave this a 4 star instead of a 5 star simply because while I liked it, found it valuable, and think more people should read it - it's not DeMille's best work. There were many places I wish he'd have gone into more detail, and other places I felt he was repeating himself. The basic principles are timeless, and need to be taught to our children if we want to be free.

    17. This books outlines and briefly explains 12 fundamental natural laws by which all free societies function in order to remain free. When these laws are broken, freedom is compromised. By reading this book, I gained several pertinent insights into free government and a stronger desire to become more deeply acquainted with the American founding documents and natural law in general.

    18. I struggled with this book and I don't really know why. There is a lot of really important information about the natural laws so important to the founding fathers of our country. It is a book that I will read again when I have more reading time available as I think it deserves a more intensive study.

    19. Mr DeMille is a dying breed American's American, a Statesman, whose calling is to lift our Republic from the abyss it has fallen into. This work goes beyond the opus of the Founders and the Natural Law they gave us, and leads us to real answers to return our Nation to Glory it once enjoyed. I highly recommend this and ALL of Oliver DeMille's other books.

    20. Oliver breaks it down in this easy to read & understand lesson about the foundations of our nation & all truly free societies. Should be required reading for not only those going into politics, but everyone in America & worldwide who believe in freedom.

    21. This has been the best book I've read yet that has helped me better understand and put a framework around the nagging feeling that "things aren't right."Oliver DeMille lays out basic, common-sense foundations of natural law and an action plan to make man-made-laws more "fair."

    22. Ever wonder what truths were self evident? This is a great read that is short, "simple," and to the point. Definitely worth your time, and I will be reading it again. great reading list in the back for those of us who would like to know more.

    23. One of the best primers on natural law I've ever read. I highly recommend this book. Get it into as many peoples' hands as possible.
