Great Falls, VA – William L. Kovacs is the author of Reform the Kakistocracy. A Greek word, kakistocracy is defined as “rule by the least able or least principled citizens,” and according to Kovacs, a senior level public policy adviser for nearly 50 years, we’re currently living in one.

“Our leaders possess little ability to lead and less principle,” says Kovacs. “The fundamental question I ask throughout the entire book is ‘who do these elected representatives actually represent? Very few people in this country are represented by the current political system.”

Reform the Kakistocracy sets forth ideas on how citizens can begin to restructure a massive federal government with uncontrollable debt and decades of undeclared wars.

“Our elected representatives should serve as fiduciaries that give loyalty to the Constitution and the branch of government in which they serve,” says Kovacs. “They take an oath to the Constitution. They take an oath to the office in which they serve. They don’t take an oath to a political party which is nothing more than a group of people organizing to control the nation.”

“It sounds cynical, but politicians find more benefit in conflict than finding solutions to the issues facing the nation,” Kovacs laments. “They don't work together anymore. They don't even talk to each other. Everything's a fight. In the media, one side has one set of facts and the other has another. You really begin to wonder what's real. Government officials should be telling us the truth, whatever that truth is. Americans need the truth to find the right path forward.”
