Author's Comments Nov 15, 2003
By Thomas D. Clark
I am the author and I have listed below a short description and table of contents of the above book Engineering the Future of Civilization. I wrote the book primarily for historians and legal scholars to document the development of modern legal and social trends that I discussed and encountered on the Internet. Chapter 2, The History & Future of the USA Constitution & Western Law is the best chapter and is very well written. The rest of the chapters need to be improved upon and rewritten to be easier to understand for the average reader since I wrote these chapters very hastily.
This book presents various writings by Baron Von Volsung,
which discusses the general theories, principles and plans,
needed to professionally engineer the structure of society
and government to preserve civilization in a just and
peaceable manner, throughout the history of a society.
Chapter 1 discusses the general notions of constitutional law,
and the history of constitutions, to present the legal notions
needed to ensure just and peaceable societies.
Then Chapter 2, 3, 4, 5, and 6, discuss the notions of
historical planning and engineering, which include
legal, business, and religious theories, and give
practical business and legal examples, that may apply
to engineering self sustainable societies and civilization.
Chapter 1, The Principles of Engineering History,
Chapter 2, History & Future of the USA Constitution & Western Law,
Chapter 3, Essays, Email Debates, & Internet Posts,
Chapter 4, Political and legal writings,
Chapter 5, Buisness and scientific writings,
Chapter 6, Religious and philosophical writings,
Chapter 7, Legal Actions.
"Chapter 1, The Principles of Engineering History © By Baron Von Volsung
A scholarly and complete textbook which discusses the principles of historical engineering, should discuses the theoretical ideas and give practical examples of how to apply modern scientific, mathematical, physical, computational, and engineering principles, to collect data, analyze, process, and plan, historical information from the past, present, and projected futures. This paper is a philosophical discussion which will
only outline, and briefly discuses some of the areas of scientific engineering and theory that may apply to historical problems and solutions. A modern professor trained in science, engineering and history, could write a more thorough and scholarly text book, to be used in universities, from the
philosophical ideas, presented in this paper."

"Law is the King of all Men and God's Alike, Pindar"
The etiquette and maxims of good behavior as exemplified in Benjamin Franklin's , "Poor Richards Almanac", George Washington's, "The rules of civility and decent
behavior in company and conversation", and Lord Chesterfield's " Letters to His Son, 1774" on how a gentlemen should behave, describe the ideals of gentle society and politics during the age of the American Revolution, which fostered the new
modern age of constitutional governments, designed to protect the basic liberties, of gentle citizens and societies.
Since the beginning of recorded history, civilizations have strived to achieve societies and governments based on the ideals of justice, which preserve the basic freedoms and divine blessings of life and happiness. In ancient times, covenants, commandments, and customs were decreed by prophets and kings, who were the messengers of God and divine law; and who had received the divine right, to rule, as monarchs, based on religious beliefs and divine doctrines. As the ages passed, gentle manners, and morals based on custom, religious, and natural laws, as judged and enforced by monarchs, local tribunals and citizens, gave way to the wisdom of sages and philosophers, who speculated on the most ideal forms of government based on constitutions, and laws derived from them.
Many of the modern governments and constitutions of Western civilization today, can be traced in origin to the ancient Greek and Roman civilizations.
The Greek city states, developed many different forms of government, and law systems which encouraged individual liberties, above all. Great classical philosophers, and
statesmen of Greece, such as Plato and Aristotle, preserved the spirit of freedom and the classical notions of justice and government, in their scholarly debates, and
philosophies. Ancient Rome, aspired to achieve the Greek ideals of law and government,in developing their legal systems and governments from republics to empires, which
eventually spread throughout all of Western Europe and the Americas, and climaxed with the development of the republican government and constitution of the United States of
To fully understand the history of law which lead to the development of the United States constitution, we shall discuss II. The History of Western Law, III. The Principles
and Theory of Law, and IV. The Future of Western Law and the USA Constitution below."
