Mainspring of Human Progress


Used Condition Paperback 263 pages

Why did all humans throughout history face starvation on an ongoing basis? Why were they forced to endure from harvest-to-harvest with nothing left over for the future? Why has a change occurred only in the past few generations and only in westernized countries?

The answer lies in man’s struggle for freedom over many centuries. The free institutions that western man created made possible not only political freedom, but economic prosperity and abundance. We live in an age that is unique in the history of mankind.  Henry Grady Weaver explores the unique nature of our time and why our abundance is not to be taken for granted. He explains how our prosperity depends on the continued unbridled energy of mankind as it strives to better itself. This energy can exist only where government is limited and man remains free.
