In this follow-up to his book, Philosophy of the United States: Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness (2004), Anderson argues that government is a "social operating system" that governs the relationships within society, much like a computer operating system governs the parts of a computer. He demonstrates that the Constitution, which he calls Version 3.0, was written for a much simpler and more agrarian society, and discusses needed reforms in areas such as Congress, tax policy, and health care, based on the Founding Fathers' essential principles of government, an understanding of human nature, and lessons from history. Anderson is editor-in-chief of International Journal on World Peace.
