Author’s Introduction We are at war. Our mortal enemy has made no secret of its goal and stated aim: “eliminating and destroying Western civilization from within and sabotaging its miserable house,” and installing a universal caliphate. Pretending that fourteen hundred years of Islamic imperialism and expansionism didn’t happen doesn’t change reality. Ayn Rand said that you can avoid reality, but you cannot avoid the consequences of avoiding reality. If you refuse to fight, you forfeit. If you forfeit, you lose. And I mean, lose everything. The stakes couldn’t be higher. Islamic supremacists are more assertive in the United States than they ever have been before. They’re building large mega-mosques in communities where the local Muslims can neither fill nor afford them. They’re demanding—and receiving—special privileges for Muslims in workplaces and special installations for Islamic prayers in public universities, as well as in airports and other public facilities. (Islamic law places Muslims in a special class, giving them rights that non-Muslims do not have.) They’re bringing back prayer in public schools—but only for Muslims: they are seeking special legal status for Islam. They’re shutting down the national debate that we urgently need to have about Islam and Islamization. They are demonizing as “bigots,” “racists,” and “Islamophobes” anyone who suggests any anti-terror measure or who asks the Muslim community in the U.S. to do something effective about the jihadists and Islamic supremacists in their midst. Fight back. The question isn’t who is going to let you, it’s who is going to stop you.

This is a print on demand book and is therefore non- returnable. This study in theological anthropology considers man as the image of God, the meaning of the image, immortality, and human freedom, dealing always with living, actual man and his inescapable relation to God.
Purchasing Submission is the first book to recognize this problem. It explores the danger in depth and suggests how it can be redressed with familiar and practicable legal tools.

From a leading constitutional scholar, an important study of a powerful mode of government control: the offer of money and other privileges to secure submission to unconstitutional power. The federal government increasingly regulates by using money and other benefits to induce private parties and states to submit to its conditions. It thereby enjoys a formidable power, which sidesteps a wide range of constitutional and political limits. Conditions are conventionally understood as a somewhat technical problem of Òunconstitutional conditionsÓÑthose that threaten constitutional rightsÑbut at stake is something much broader and more interesting. With a growing ability to offer vast sums of money and invaluable privileges such as licenses and reduced sentences, the federal government increasingly regulates by placing conditions on its generosity. In this way, it departs not only from the ConstitutionÕs rights but also from its avenues of binding power, thereby securing submission to conditions that regulate, that defeat state laws, that commandeer and reconfigure state governments, that extort, and even that turn private and state institutions into regulatory agents. The problem is expansive, including almost the full range of governance. Conditions need to be recognized as a new mode of powerÑan irregular pathwayÑby which government induces Americans to submit to a wide range of unconstitutional arrangements. Purchasing Submission is the first book to recognize this problem. It explores the danger in depth and suggests how it can be redressed with familiar and practicable legal tools.
The obvious answer to this form of the problem is that freedom remains freedom and yet appears in the form of law if it voluntarily submits to law . If freedom choose to become law it is law and freedom at the same time .
