A Governed Society Isn’t Civilized, It Is Slap-Dash
Nobody asked but …
The so-called Modern World has been sitting on its thumbs since WWII, maybe since the US Civil War. How else can we explain the massive failures of The Depression, Pearl Harbor, the Military Industrial Complex, 9/11, and the Coronavirus Pandemic? We keep getting caught with our pants around our ankles, because we do not pull our pants up in the first place.
We have randomly created the perfect government for making sure everyone is pissed. We have enshrined the scene of the accident.
We focused on dissent rather than just getting away from one kerfuffle and into another. We were escaping from King George III, so we wrote documents that immortalized the crimes of a crazy monarch. Our concept of freedom is couched in terms of being away from a distorted personality. Our Bill of Rights is a punch list of things we will not tolerate from European monarchists. No wonder this government pays no attention to the BoR.
