A) we are balancing a global nuclear exchange with whatever negative possibility you imagine ..
So what’s more important survival of the nation and maybe even the species, or one countries right to bear arms???
I’m sure people that are retarded will say “ I would rather humanity die, my children and all my future offsping die than give up my guns..”
But that’s obviously retarded..
Slavery, Nazi rule , exc there is no greater evil for humanity than extinction. If nazis rules the world. That would be temporary. Administrations change. Extinction is forever.
B) Probably whatever the biggest military says it does..
Aka whatever we say..
See that’s the part that blows my mind. If a one works government were formed in 1782. We are just a bit player, but if one were formed today?!?!
We rule the world..
Hell I kinda think the US should have conqered the world inthe small 1945-50 gap we were the only nuclear power. Not because I’m a fan of empire, but because nukes are that big of a threat..
The people in the 50s were not crazy.. we have grown complacent.
This country was founded on the idea that the individual was more important than the collective.
