We citizens of the United States are living in a time in which the potential for greatness could not be higher.
The founding fathers fought to create a free nation, they were great. The brothers fighting their kinsmen to keep the nation whole in the civil war
were great. The men who fought in the wars overseas to destroy ruthless dictators and oppression were great. Yet, should the men and women of America
be forced to engage an abusive American government in order to reclaim freedom and constitutional rule, should they be victorious, would be the
greatest generation ever.
The reason for this is technology. The individual citizens are so completely 'outgunned' by the government, it would take nearly miraculous tactics
and strategy to gain control. Not only that, but the surveillance capabilities of the federal military and other federal organizations makes
collaboration next to impossible. There there is the issue of internal chaos that would develop should the citizenry rise up; regular supplies,
services and ways of life would be negatively affected for the long term. Clearly, this would cause conflict within the citizenry. Trust would be
short term and on a case-by-case basis between people. Yet, even if the oppressive government would be removed, there is more to overcome.
Should the citizens win back the freedoms protected by the constitution, having to maintain national or even state sovereignty against opportunistic
foreign nations will be an extreme challenge. Nations invested in the US will want to collect or seize territory or other assets. Should this too be
overcome, then the generation who saved the constitution and protected the sovereignty of the nation would have been the greatest generation of
At the same time, should the people of the nation do nothing and allow the country to be take advantage of, its people abused and used by the elite in
power, only to have the freedoms obtained at such significant cost eroded and the constitution regarded as a novelty, then shame on us all. We will
not be worthy of the rights or freedom handed down by our ancestors. We will deserve whatever punishment we get.
I say this because I believe that within the life of a child born today (quite possibly within the next decade or two,) the people of the US will be
at a crossroads of freedom or bondage, from an abusive and corrupt American government; either by fate, misfortune or design.
