Many of our social issues in America involve a corruption in the political landscape. Laws are passed for reasons other then the stated reason, and
even if there are two valid directions to take, the law will usually lean toward the favor of the powerful while seemingly appeasing the masses.
Analyze laws currently on the books and it will not take long for a person to come to the conclusion that they are geared to create jobs in a slave
class society and to tax the wealthy to redistribute the wealth in order to compensate for what is a system designed to oppress citizens therein while
letting the most powerful in society to run rampant.
So what would the American landscape look like if we followed the Constitution?
All corporate formations could be tailor made to any type of structure conceivable to the human mind that is agreed upon by consenting and contracting
parties. This means if you so chose, you could form businesses with others limiting or expanding your rights to property, dividends, or other payments
within the organization as you chose to partake in. There would be no government mandate to produce profit year over year for your investors if your
particular group decided it was not necessary to do so. This type of corporate structure would allow both venture capitalists and private social
associations to organize their wishes and desires to a common objective. Groups would be able to freely associated for common gain, be it social,
monetary, or fraternization without any government mandate of how the company should be organized.
Regulations of corporations would be limited to matters which affect health/safety of critical parts of human necessity. Such things as food, water,
housing, transportation, medical care, would be the most regulated. Luxury products and inventions would receive nearly no regulation allowing all
manners of free enterprise to be tried and tested in the free market.
No caps on lawsuits. Those industries that operated outside the scope of regulation would be subjected to full civil liability for not taking
appropriate precautions. The current limitation of $250,000 cap on punitive damages only benefits the big businesses. A small company that gets hit
with a $250,000 punitive damage award goes out of business or put into receivership. A big business can take calculated risks and never suffer any
real harm paying out the largest award.
Education would be freely obtained. Not for free, but no group could be allowed to set up societal structures that limit the manner in which a person
may learn to enter into any profession. If you can read a book and obtain a level of skill needed to enter a profession then this would be acceptable.
If you can learn as an apprentice, this too would be acceptable. You could freely learn at your leisure any skill needed to enter any profession and
not a single group could set standards for admittance into that profession. This means a doctor could become a doctor by learned study, perhaps taking
a serious of tests. A lawyer could become a lawyer without spending years in law school learning subject areas in which s/he would never practice
anyway. An accountant could show knowledge of mathematics and be qualified to provide services to others. Essentially, not a single occupation would
be out of reach to a mind willing to learn. No institution of higher learning ran for-profit would be needed to obtain an occupation providing one can
obtain the required level of skill needed for entry into such a profession. This would eliminate billions of student loans, allow for group study (for
free or low cost) and encourage a system of sharing ideas to advance us all.
Medical care would look nothing like Obama care. If we allowed our government to regulate commerce for the betterment of all of us it would not create
such a scheme. What it could do is set a minimum standard of coverage that an insurer must make available to all, things that we all are likely to
encounter throughout our life time. Broken bones, cuts, common sicknesses, diagnosis for diseases, obtaining doctors notes could all be covered at low
costs things we could all use. Outside of common usages or treatments that affect a majority of the population all other coverage should be voluntary
and risk based personal assessments.
There would be little to no entitlement that produces profits for private interests. Think of the billions in food stamps that Walmart gets via the
government. Think of the gouging of employers and states that occurs when people get put on unemployment. Obviously a different system can be
envisioned that takes care of our collective needs when disaster strikes our personal lives. Perhaps we as the government can set aside jobs for those
unemployed in times of crisis, instead of giving money to find work, we give them work be it enlisted service to the country or some other concept to
get people working for the money they receive.
Crimes that are victimless crimes would no longer be criminal. Crimes that are non violent would be treated as correctable as a debt to society and no
prison time would occur. Only crimes which place people in danger or that are violent would require prison. Everyone who completes their sentences
would have full rights restored.
Utopian society? Or simply a society which respects the individual human existence to live empowered and free from controlling structures that have
the ability to imprison our minds and behaviors.
