That is why our founding fathers (especially, Thomas Jefferson) understood that creating a constitutional republic with checks and balances is the only way to protect individual competing interest and rights.
There are rulers out there claiming to understand RIGHTS better than you, but then, their idea of rights have more to do with power than any right. But then, that is why you need to join in with those of your point of view in order to change the rules. It's the way of our democratic representative constitutionalist republic. SO GET INVOLVED, or lose your rights. Keep voting, at least, until you get the representatives you prefer, or you may be the one who needs to run in the next race.
Personally, I believe that the way to anything close to a UTOPIA will only come by way of a new process called SCIENCE. It has never been, and never will be, accomplished the OLD FASHION WAY.
"Why do you pass laws that you can't enforce?"
Einstein was referring to PROHIBITION.
Please, don't judge my personal politics until I've had an opportunity to address specific issues. Because in some ways I'm conservative and in others I'm liberal.
Good people of the frontal lob must band together to resist these Jane-Goodall-alpha-monkey remnants from our jungle past.
Here’s What Jefferson Said About Governments:
. . . in every government on earth is some trace of human weakness, some germ of corruption and degeneracy, which cunning will discover and wickedness insensibly open, cultivate and improve. Every government degenerates when trusted to the rulers of the people alone. The people themselves therefore are its only safe depositories . . .
. . . From the conclusion of this [Revolution] war we shall be going DOWNHILL. It will not then be necessary to resort every moment to the people for support. They will be forgotten, therefore, and their RIGHTS DISREGARDED. They will forget themselves but in the sole faculty of making money, and will NEVER THINK OF UNITING to effect a due RESPECT FOR THEIR RIGHTS. The shackles, therefore, which shall not be knocked off at the conclusion of this war will remain on us long, will be made heavier and heavier, ‘TIL OUR RIGHTS SHALL REVIVE OR EXPIRE IN A CONVULSION’ . . .
. . . Thomas Jefferson
