America is dead. You can't build a home on your own property without permission. So, without explicit government permission, you are homeless. What
year was that? The last nail on the coffin was in 1971. Since then, when the government decided to print money to enlarge itself to enormous
multi-trillion proportions, the middle class has slowly died and continues to shrivel. Its been all downhill from there. The coffin started being
built in 1913 when the government decided a special partnership between elite banks and elite politicians are the best way to manage the economy. I'm
told by many that falls in line with the definition of fascism.
The US constitution was ultimately insufficient because it was merely a chip played by the elite to get their foot in the door for a centralized
big-government authority. Had it been constructed from a motivation to actually protect rights and freedoms, things would be totally different. The
constitution was and is a lie sold to the public. Had it been constructed a as a motivation to protect rights and freedom, the bill of rights would
not have been an amendment!
The unfortunate real genius of the constitution was the politicians ability to amend it just enough so that there would be no revolts against them.
Politicians don't care about you or me. They care about power.
And somehow capitalism gets the blame. But no, the final nail on the coffin for capitalism was 1971 when government spending became the dominant force
in the economy. Is it really a coincidence that the day that USA corporation became the dominant economic power was the day that the middle class
started to disappear?
The foundation was corrupt so the system was doomed from the start. The constitution was not really about protecting people's liberties and freedoms.
If it were, the bill of rights would be an original part of it. Rather, the US constitution was designed to grab as much power and centralize as much
power as the power elite could manage to get in their hands without too much complaint.
Modern governments are based on fear and violence. If instead they were based on voluntary cooperation and love, then perhaps they would be much more
stable over time. Instead of saying "if you don't pay me, then I'll punish you" (using fear) Uncle Sam said "Here is a problem... lets
voluntarily cooperate to solve it. If you don't help pay for it, you may not get access to the solution.", (love-based cooperative solutions) then
he would find long-term practical success instead of a long string of embarrassment, corruption, and failure.
