Communism referring to the historical sense is sensible however the frustrations are merely a result of one single economical switch. Inflation. If you read a 6th grade history book the Roman empire was destroyed in this same systematical way. We are simply repeating history. The preconditions (inflation) construct these antagonistic conflicts. This is repeated over and over and over… resulting in predictable social reactions.
Our constitution is not perfect but it incorporates and integrates deep philosophical research thought and historical understanding. If our govt. is too complex then something is WRONG. The constitution provides a substratum of techniques/laws that help prevent instinctual human behavioral threats such as greed. People may say “well America changes… we are growing economically, politically, socially, and we need new policies/laws.” This creates stratified laws, temporally binding.
Why can Socrates rhetoric be applied today? because innate human behavior remains static and predictable. A top down approach will not work. A good beginning towards unification is to enforce the constitution, demand our boundless government to abide, and then amend as needed. Everything will fall into place. Capitalism, the fed and big government will cease to exist. The power is ultimately in the hands of the people.
Let’s not lose this chance merely because of disorganization. The economy WILL collapse... it is historically destined too due to inflation. An organized plan must be constructed and prepared by the people and executed during the collapse. Or someone else will.
