n 1911, prior to Wilson’s taking office as President, House had returned to his home in Texas and completed a book called Philip Dru - Administrator. Ostensibly a novel, it was actually a detailed plan for the future government of the United States, "which would establish Socialism as dreamed by Karl Marx", according to House.
This "novel" predicted the enactment of the graduated income tax, excess profits tax, unemployment insurance, social security, and a flexible currency system. In short, it was the blueprint which was later followed by the Woodrow Wilson and Franklin D. Roosevelt administrations. It was published "anonymously" by B. W. Huebsch of New York, and widely circulated among government officials, who were left in no doubt as to its authorship. George Sylvester Viereck **, who knew House for years, later wrote an account of the Wilson-House relationship, The Strangest Friendship in History.14

I'm just watching my Twitter feed from Reuters and the BBC - They have just tweeted a 'flash' that Obama is warning there will be no social security checks on Aug 3rd if a resolution to the debt crisis cannot be found. Sorry no news links yet as it's breaking news. However, this may be a shot across the bows of the Republicans in advance of talks - but if not and it's serious - then it has the potential to cause not just distress but chaos in the USA.
