The New Commonwealth
The New Commonwealth, a novella by Norman D. Livergood, is Plato Revisited in the 21st century as an ideal form of society that Livergood believes is a conscious solution to 21st century's failed experiments.
Writes Livergood in the preface of a well-crafted work that complements his six other works, also published by Dandelion Books:
There have been many historical political "experiments" that provide some insight into the essential features of a commonwealth: fifth century Athens, the Venetian republic, and the United States, among others. And there have been a number of "utopias," imaginatively created accounts of idealized communities. But all these are merely distant approximations of the Form Commonwealth, which we must understand if we're to create a commonwealth movement.
