*"I admire the US constitution too. In fact, my political position isessentially to follow it (although I like to imagine possibilities for**peaceful world with further increases in freedom)*." Which Constitution? the one epoch-opening chef-d'oeuvre based on modernized medieval ideas of those well educated smoking-duelling slave-owner male chauvinist Forefathers, who just did not want to pay taxes to the King of England, or the later "amended" versions of the same obsolete construct making it into a gun-toting killer - corrupt, faith-ruled money-monger (with SOME exceptions, thank you). I join you in admiring the original one - as a relic, an innovation historical masterpiece FOR THE 18th CENTURY. Not for the 21st. My admiration stopped short when I realized the outcome: a 'special-interest money'-ruled anti-democratic conglomerate, *governing*a so called government into committing crimes (international and domestic) originally excluded from it's 'modus (regulatio) vivendi'. How can you imagine a 'peaceful' world with capitalistic (I call it: econo-feudalistic) principles, imperialistic (oil?) wars and forcing own interest on other countries? (Not to mention the availability of all level governance for enough money). JM -- You received this message because you are subscribed to the Google Groups "Everything List" group.
