Edward Mandell House: Quote for October 1, 2010

Our Government is, perhaps, less responsive to the will of the people than that of almost any of the civilized nations. Our Constitution and our laws served us well for the first hundred years of our existence, but under the conditions of to-day they are not only obsolete, but even grotesque.
Edward Mandell House is the object of many "New World Order Conspiracy" theories. One reason for this, is his book Philip Dru: Administrator, where he expresses many of his political ideas. In the book his hero Philip Dru becomes the benevolent dictator of the United States.
In real life, he was president Woodrow Wilson's trusted advisor and helped to establish the United States Federal Reserve.
