Its a good idea,but its just that a Idea since this is not a perfect world with humans treating each other fairly.
go out there and WORK for what you want
We would have to rewrite the entire Constituition as well as the bill of rights.
I took out some of your main points to illustrate my shared beliefs on several of the items. However, I don't believe the Constitution would really
need to be revised, because The Bill of Rights adheres to the Social Contract Theory, by outlining the preservation of individual expression in
accordance with federally mandated laws.
In addition, the United States was founded upon ideals, and I find that individual values is where the disconnect with regards to the current system
is stemming from for a lot of people. Largely because these ideals made the assumption that peole would conduct their lives transparently, while at
the same time the Founders disregarded the potential for the civic and professional adoption of Machiavellian power tactics.
The Founders expected leaders to act selflessly, and for citizens to take personal accountability for the conduct of their government. I can feel for
the people who are just flat-out down on their luck by no fault of their own because of policy decisions, but I cannot disregard the fact that there
are also people who simply refuse to better their own lives if others are willing to pay so they don't absolutely have to.
I have lived my life based on the idea that you don't always get what you want, but you will always get what you deserve. We already live in a merit
system, which is is reflected in all social aspects, whether it be in school or in a job. You get grades, and you get paid an income based on your
perceived worth, in addition to the efforts you made to become more "valueable". For the most part, what other people do is truly irrelevant, unless
it unjustly compromises an individual's sovereignty. Nobody is making anyone do anything that they don't willing cooperate with, because I knowingly
dictate my reaction to everything. People just need to make their own luck, be their own messiah, because ultimately they have to answer to themselves
when they look in the mirror above anyone else.
