A very interesting post. I'm not sure that you could say that the United States (or jolly old England) can really claim to have all 16 of these.
I think an interesting distinction to draw is the difference between hard and soft tyranny. North Korea, for example, is a definitive hard tyranny.
There is no question about its following of all the 16 points to some extent.
However, in the United States, we still question whether or not we can apply each point. Because of this debate, we can argue that it is a soft
tyranny. That is, there is enough opinion on either side to make a case. When the real tyranny clicks in, the vast majority will be more than happy to
open the doors. Likewise, I think that this should be a rallying cry against the more democratic movements across the world. Democracies allow for
demagogues and other forms of tyranny.
We should get back to the Constitution, please... people... read the handwriting on the wall.
Is ANYONE feeling like Cassandra at Troy?
